Local Animal Rescue Organizations

There are numerous local rescue organizations. This list is not an inclusive but includes some local organizations that we have worked with. These organizations are non-profit groups that work solely on donations from the public. Some organizations may charge an intake fee to receive an animal. The needs of Hidalgo County are great and many of these organizations operate at, or near, capacity.

Please, keep in mind that many of these individuals are very busy and very few, if any, are readily available via phone. Email is, typically, the most efficient means of communicating with these rescue organizations.
