The Athens Animal Rescue Shelter has responded to animals in need through the generous support of individuals, businesses, and foundations. We provide shelter, food, medical treatment, love and care to every animal that is brought to our facility. Our mission is to promote the humane treatment of animals through care, education, and advocacy.
Athens Animal Rescue Shelter took over the county shelter on April 1, 2020 and began an immediate transformation. Our dedicated, animal-loving employees engaged a supportive community to build strong networks of fosters, rescues and animal lovers all willing to come together to save more lives. We provide shelter, food, medical care and love to the animals that come into our care.
We serve the citizens and pets of Henderson County, TX and are on target to care for over 2,500 shelter pets each year.
We are open daily by appointment only.
Open daily from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm by appointment only.
