dog and cat

Dear Animal Lovers,

Once again I am forced to turn to you, our core donors for help. Our Shelter receives dogs and cats from Willacy County on a daily basis. We are required by law to hold all strays for three days, even the ones we know that are going to be put down, just in case the owner comes looking for it. This forces us to put down healthy adoptable dogs every day because of our shortage of space. Hopefully you've followed the news and have heard how the Humane Society of Harlingen is trying to help with the stray animal crisis that plagues Willacy County. This problem has been going on for years but now with the prison closing and Walmart leaving the County Commissioners will not deal with the situation at this time. They say they have more important issues.

I have personally witnessed a starving dog eating a dead dog; a site I never want to see again. I've been trying to raise the $100,000 we need to do this project from Willacy County landowners. However most of them are quite old and of the opinion that you just shoot them. Something that we desperately want to stop.

Our plan is to buy five acres of land somewhere between Sebastian and Lyford to build a holding facility for the dogs. Along with a cat sanctuary for all the healthy cats that we trap and cannot release back into the community. If you're asking yourself why should we care about Willacy County remember it's not about the people it's about the animals!

Respectfully I'm asking for donations for this project. Anything that you could offer at this time would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely, Pat Turman-White, President, Humane Society of Harlingen 956-425-7297 -

  • adoption trailer

    WE ARE ON THE ROAD!

    Our truck & trailer is a huge success! By mobilizing our adoption efforts, we are able to present up to 22 animals at a time to our community in a climate controlled unit.

    Our goal is to increase the number of adoptions by being visible in more places in our community.

    We are so grateful for our supporters and volunteers that make these events happen.

    Our Cat Sanctuary

    Pets need a place to live after their family passes on.

    Our goal is to eliminate the worry of Seniors by giving their animals a more "home like" setting until they too pass on.
