The Animal Rescue Foundation-Texas is a 501(c)3 corporation located in Seguin, Texas, with the mission of promoting the welfare, rescue and adoption of dogs and cats in Seguin and Guadalupe County, Texas.
PET FEED: We feed pets for the clients of the Christian Cupboard in Seguin. We provide 600-900 pounds of dog and cat food monthly, in the first step toward intervening in the care of animals at risk. Volunteers and donations are always welcome.
PET/VET: We provide medical exams and inoculations for the Cupboard clients at a local vet. This puts them in a trackng system, and we repeat the service as the pets become due for refreshers. We treat up to 30 pets monthly.
ONE MORE QUESTION: Local funeral homes, nursing homes and churches can ask “one more question”:Who is taking care of the pets? We provide immediate pick up of pets in danger of abandonment or in need of rehoming. This has been used by deploying servicemen, as well. We need fosters, volunteer drivers and always-donations.
GUADALUPE COUNTY LOST AND FOUND PETS: We maintain a Facebook site for posting lost and found pets. Please join and repost to spread the word.
SHELTER SUPPORT: We provide vaccines, flea treatment, and grooming for animals in the Seguin Animal Shelter as we work to enhance adoptions there. We have joined with the Seguin Dog Park in providing open air adoptions for the shelter.
We are working with Pawsitive Energy:Delta Society Therapy Dogs of San Marcos to present a therapy dog reading assistance program in Seguin Schools.
FREE SPAY/NEUTER: We established partnerships to provide financial assistance for spaying/neutering of adopted shelter dogs. Donate! Donate! Donate!
We partner with P.A.L.S. (Pet Prevent a Litter of Central Texas) for spay/neuter of large dogs, 40 pounds and up. For information about PALS spay/neuter program for large dogs, click here or call 512-745-PALS.
PET ADOPTION RESOURCES: If you’re ready to adopt your new best friend, check out dogs and cats who are available for adoption at Guadalupe County Humane Society, Seguin Animal Services, and on Petfinder (search the 78155 ZIP code to get an idea about who is looking for a Forever Home). ThePaws in Prison program trains rescue dogs who are available for adoption. We can connect you with dogs who’ve come out of this program if you want to know more.
CANINE GROOMING, TRAINING, and GEAR: Thunderpaws Canine Solutionsoffers training in classes and individual lessons and has experience working with rescue dogs. The boutique supports animal rescue in the community and is a great place to go if you’re looking for an answer to a question about animals. If they don’t know the answer, they generally know who will.
LEGISLATION IS IMPORTANT: An ordinance was passed in Seguin to define what is “too hot for Spot” regarding dogs in cars and to add enforcibilty to the state laws regarding chaining animals. Contact us for more information.
