Texas Humane Heroes, a private, nonprofit, no-kill animal adoption organization, is asking for additional donations to save the lives of hundreds of dogs and cats this summer.

Last year, Texas Humane Heroes saved 1,001 homeless dogs during June through August.

The animals were rescued from local municipal shelters that resort to space related killing when overcrowded.

Following a decreased giving season this winter and spring, Texas Humane Heroes is planning to drop the number of dogs and cats rescued by 30 to 50 percent.

Immediate donations are needed in order to continue saving these animals and finding them adoptable homes. Without this action, the animals may be killed due to space-related concerns at municipal shelters throughout Central Texas.

To make a donation, go to www.TexasHumaneHeroes.org/donate or call 512-260-3602.
