About this organization
Our mission at HES is to provide a safe haven for homeless, abused and neglected animals in our community and advocate on their behalf.
Our adoption program was very successful this year. We adopted, transferred out or owner returned 3,622 animals from our facility. We did not have to euthanize any adoptable animals and had a live release rate of 89.59%. The special needs program raised $83,884 this year. These funds are used to provide emergency care and long-term rehabilitation for abandoned, abused, and neglected animals. The Save a Heart program expands our special needs program. Heartworm positive animals surrendered at the shelter are now considered as part of trainable, adoptable, and treatable (TAT) animals. Donations allocated toward this program have treated 278 animals through June 30, 2018, which are now adopted and in their forever homes. HES raised $38,503 for the relief of Hurricane Harvey to pull 15 endangered shelter animals from the Texas hurricanes as well as 25 animals from Florida after Hurricane Irma. HES is an HSUS emergency placement partner and we feel it is important to help other shelters in need.
