We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal shelter, rescue and sanctuary situated on FM 326 east of Lufkin, Texas. Our shelter has been operating for more than thirty years under the direction of Janie Hunter.
We rescue, rehabilitate, foster, transport, and adopt homeless, abandoned and abused animals in the East Texas area, and provide a no-kill, care-for-life sanctuary for unadoptable animals. We place adoptable animals in loving homes and provide assistance with spaying and neutering as we have funds available. In addition, we work to educate the public regarding the need to spay and neuter all pets and to provide essential preventive medical care.
Many of our animals are elderly. Some have come to us because their owners died or had to go to nursing homes, and we have honored our pledge to give them care for life. We have a number of cats and dogs who would love to be adopted into loving families. We also need foster homes for dogs and cats while they await adoption.
We are happy to accept memorial gifts to honor the person or pet of your choice, and a note will be sent to whomever you designate.
We need donations of towels, washable blankets, and cat litter.
If you would like to make a donation or have items to donate, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and a volunteer will contact you.
Visits to the sanctuary are by appointment only. Due to our heavy workload and shortage of help, we are not open to the public on a regular basis. If you would like to see our animals, please email or call and set up an appointment. Thank you for your understanding.
