Animal Allies of Texas is a 501(c)(3) animal advocacy/rescue organization, dedicated to improving the quality of life in our community. Our goal is to build a no-kill shelter on enough land to house not only “adoptable” animals, but “treatable” ones as well – those who need medical care or behavior modification to become adoptable. While working toward this goal, we engage in community service and humane education projects to help bring about “humanity championed by thought.” AAT relies solely on a dedicated group of volunteers to operate. If you are interested in joining us in any capacity you will find it a rewarding experience. Please view our volunteer page to find out how you can help.

Break-a-thon to benefit AAT!
Stickland’s Taekwondo is holding a break-a-thon on May 30th, with benefits graciously being donated to help the animals of AAT. For those not in the know a break-a-thon is literally breaking things, or at least breaking wood! The Strickland’s kids will be breaking wood with their bare hands! These kids are amazing! Help the dedicated kids of Strickland’s and in turn help AAT help the voiceless. Thanks to our volunteers at Highland Village for setting this up. More details here…
The Saving Grace Fund
Grace was a young dog, probably used as a bait dog, who was dumped in a metal scrap yard. She was covered with bite wounds and emaciated. A Good Sam took her in to a veterinary hospital and donated money towards her care. Animal Allies of Texas took over her care. Sadly, Grace passed away within a few days because of the severe infection causing uncontrollable seizures.
This fund is dedicated in her memory for animals who have no one who is able to care for them. Our Board of Directors decides on a case-by-case basis of how the funds are distributed. To date, funds have been used to help treat puppies from a shelter for parvo, to help with hospital costs for a dog whose owner was on a very limited income, and for a badly injured cat who showed up on someone’s doorstep at night, crying for help.
If you would like to donate to our “Saving Grace Fund” donations can be sent through PayPal or checks mailed to P.O. Box 496385, Garland, TX, 75049-6385. Please designate your donation with Grace’s name. Thank you for helping us help the helpless! Read more and donate…
Things to consider before you adopt
Adoption is the one and only option you should consider when bringing a new furry member into your family. However, adoption is not to be taken lightly. When adopting an animal you are making a long term commitment. Adoption should never be an impulse decision, nor should it be a decision you make for someone else. Read the 21 questions you should ask yourself before committing to an adoption.
