What's Happening at Harlingen Humane Society?

Animals are our priority. Working together, the staff, board members, and volunteers ensure they are housed in a clean and safe environment and their basic needs met. They are fed, bathed, walked and/or cuddled accordingly. HSH also works to provide adoptable animals the opportunity to find forever homes. We promote pets in the local newspapers, news stations, and post our featured animals online through our website and We organize offsite pet adoptions, reach out to rescue groups, and manage foster homes for the young and the sick. Your shelter is working hard on behalf of the animals.


Arrival of our NEW TRUCK and TRAILER.

(Once we had the trailer we found our pickup would not pull the trailer.
Thanks to our anonymous donors, we were able to purchase the truck too!
We can't thank everyone enough!)

Seniors-for Seniors Shelter Building

Want some company? As it came as no surprise to us that, by far, the least likely to find new homes are older pets, we have implemented a "Seniors for Seniors" adoption program.

Through this program, anyone 60 or older is eligible to adopt an adult dog or cat, that came to our shelter already spayed/neutered, at a significantly reduced adoption fee.
