The Humane Society of Harlingen takes in approximately 6,000 dogs and cats each year, and services thousands more through various community resource initiatives, including a monthly low-cost vaccination clinic and pet food pantry. HSH welcomes pets from local animal control agencies as well as from the general public. The main goal of the Humane Society of Harlingen is to provide high-quality care while making efforts to reunite lost pets with their owners and creating new families for homeless pets.

Creating families for Homeless Pets

The Humane Society of Harlingen works every day to match homeless pets with families looking to welcome a new pet into their home. With free or discounted adoption fees, a pet-care corner that offers free resources to new pet parents, and inclusive adoption practices, we are working every day to make sure that pet adoption is accessible to all.

Population(s) Served

The Humane Society of Harlingen operates a robust, ever-changing foster program that matches lost & homeless pets with families willing to temporarily open their homes to shelter pets. In foster homes, pets are able to grow, recover, and socialize, all while learning the ins and outs of family life. With a foster stimulus grant from Maddie's Fund, we were able to purchase a variety of supplies and resources which are offered to foster families to ensure they have everything they need to care for their foster pet without having to worry about the financial burden. Foster families provide a much needed relief to the shelter in opening up space and resources for emergency cases who often require specialized care from our staff. Our foster families are hero's in shelter pets lives!

Population(s) Served

Every month, the Humane Society of Harlingen hosts a low-cost vaccination clinic where we offer affordable preventative veterinary care to members of the community. The clinic serves an average of 300 people per month. As we expand our services in 2021, we hope to provide even more during these clinics.
