A Timeline of Our New Animal Care & Adoption Center

UPDATE: Our new Leander Adoption Center will be opening this summer!

Construction on our new Leander Adoption Center officially started with a groundbreaking ceremony back in October of 2022. By June of 2023, equipment was on-site to begin working on our new building – which will be at the very front of our existing lot off Crystal Falls Pkwy.

At 4,000 square feet, this new state-of-the-art facility will not only benefit the animals in our care, but will greatly increase the number of animals we’ll be able to save. It will also increase our capacity for low-cost vet clinic, meaning we’ll be able to provide more spay, neuter, and low-cost vaccinations for the community.

In addition, this new building will better utilize the 22 acres of land that our Leander Adoption Center already sits on. Instead of a converted house tucked in the back of the lot, our new building will sit right off Crystal Falls Pkwy, giving us increased visibility and convenience.

After months of work, the concrete for our new foundation and parking lot was poured in December, marking a major milestone in this project. There’s still a long way to go, and there’s still time to help us get across the finish line.

Starting in February, things really started to take shape – literally! Steel supports for the wall and roof have gone up and are being welded together, and it’s thrilling to see progress being made every day.

In addition to the new parking lot, we also have a new entrance, just a little further down the road from the old one. The best part is that it’s more convenient for entering and exiting, regardless of which way you’re going!

Obviously, your support of this building is crucial at this time, and helps ensure our ability to fulfill our mission to rescue homeless pets from overcrowded shelters across Texas for decades to come!

Saving More Cats

Currently, Texas Humane Heroes can house up to 73 healthy cats. In our new Leander Adoption Center, we will be able to house up to 144 healthy cats. This will include 108 cat enclosures, 2 cat community rooms, and 2 outdoor catios.

Saving More Dogs

Currently, Texas Humane Heroes can currently house 45 healthy dogs. In the new facility, we will be able to house up to 136 healthy dogs, and each kennel will have indoor/outdoor space to greatly increase quality of life.

Project Phases

This project will be completed in two phases. We have raised $4 million of the estimated $5.2 million needed for the first phase. Contact at giving@txhh.org to find out how you can help us reach our goal!

Phase I- Projected Completion Date July 14, 2024

  • Medical Clinic
  • Administration Building
  • Cat Houses

Phase II- Projected Completion Date To Be Determined

  • Dog Pods

Our clinic is currently 350 square feet and accommodates all animal operations, including 40 spay and neuter surgeries a day. The new facility will include a 4,000 square foot clinic for operations. This means more medical care for TXHH to continue its mission.

Currently, sick and high medical needs animals are housed with recent intakes. This makes the spread of disease more difficult to contain. The new facility will include a specific quarantine area for animals that are contagious and a risk to healthy animals.
