If you are looking to either adopt or support local animals in need, I recommend working with Texas Humane Heroes.

Texas Humane Heroes is a no-kill, private, non-profit dog and cat adoption organization. They’ve been a Central Texas staple for forty years now, with locations in both Killeen and Leander.

I’ve had the pleasure of attending/working their annual fundraiser for the last two years. I can tell you the fine folks who run the non-profit are as good as the cause they support.

So, let’s get down to what you can do.

If you’d like to adopt here’s the find a pet page.

Donations are always accepted click here to make a donation. I’m told donations save lives.

Volunteering is an extremely underrated thing to do. You’re helping a good cause, meeting new people, getting out of the house, and get that good old fashioned warm feeling. Here is the link to sign up.

I also recommended just going to your local shelter to find a four-legged friend, but again the people behind Texas Humane Heroes are second to none and good people always deserve support.
