Animal Defense League of Texas

Chartered in 1934, the Animal Defense League is a nonprofit organization that is a true no-kill shelter for abandoned, abused, or neglected dogs and cats. Their mission is to enhance the quality of life for these animals by providing needed medical care, including spaying and neutering. Food, shelter, and safety are also provided, along with compassion and attention.

While maintaining a healthy and loving facility, ADL consistently works to find the best possible home for each resident animal. Supported by contributions and directed by a volunteer board, the League provides programs and services which strengthen the bond between animals and people. Through grassroots advocacy, education, and rescue, the organization is the leading voice for dogs and cats in crisis.

Adopt a pet in need of a home, foster a pet that needs time to get adoption-ready, volunteer your time on either of the two campuses, donate to ADL's programs, drop off item donations, or just become a resource in the animal community and direct people to the various spay neuter, wellness, and adoption opportunities at the Animal Defense League.

ADL's 85th birthday party is set for June 22, 2019. Find out more here.

Adoption fees vary, all of which are available here. The volunteer and Pet Champion programs have a nominal sign-up fee to cover staff time, supplies, and T-shirt costs.
