Rescue Program

Palm Valley Animal Center is pleased to offer this alternative placement option for the animals from the Rio Grande Valley. PVAC Rescue Program has worked hard to develop and implement an advanced rescue transfer & transportation program. Through this program we have been able to successfully transfer thousands of animals to reputable animal rescue organizations throughout Texas and beyond.

This incredibly proactive approach to working with rescue organizations has greatly increased our live release rate. Establishing contact with reputable rescue organizations is important to us on behalf of the animals that come in to our facility.

Our rescue personnel & dedicated volunteers drive an over  3,500 to 4,500 miles a month delivering animals to San Antonio, Austin, Houston and everywhere in between to rescue partners!



We appreciate all the effort from the dedicated individuals who run rescue organizations and recognize that rescue organizations play a major role in re-homing pets and helping increase the live release rate at our facility.


You can help our rescue program today by sponsoring a rescue run, donating towards an animal or making a general donation. Cats and dogs rescued out are medically and behaviorally screened prior to transport and each rescue partner is provided documentation for each animal.

Your sponsorship helps us continue to provide a high level of care for rescue candidates that includes 4DX snap test and vaccinations to combat parvo, distemper, parafluenza, hepatitis, kennel cough and upper respiratory.  As well as re-vaccinations depending on the length of stay at PVAC.

Dallas Run: $3,000
Houston Run: $2,000
San Antonio: $1,500
Per Animal Donation: $100
