At Saint Mutts, we believe that animals are our Earth's tangible touch of heavenly love, reminiscent of the unwavering love God showers upon us. As a dedicated, volunteer-driven non-profit, our mission is to shield animals from the harsh realities of cruelty, neglect, and the unfortunate fate of being unwanted. We focus our rescue efforts across the expansive state of Texas and some of the most overpopulated southern regions, where countless innocent souls face euthanasia due to crowded shelters, abandonment, or the painful transition of rehoming.
With every animal we save, we commit to a thorough journey of rescue, rehabilitation, medical attention, and ensuring they're spayed or neutered. Our goal is not just a momentary fix but a long-term solution. Once they're ready, these precious beings embark on a hopeful journey to the northeastern states, where loving forever homes await them. Our adoption and fostering wings spread wide in these regions, ensuring every animal finds the warmth of a home and the love of a family.
We are humbled by the support of compassionate partners and individuals who share our vision and mission, generously contributing their time, finances, and energy. While the road of rescue is filled with challenges, it's the heartwork, the profound difference each effort makes, and the unconditional love we witness daily that fuels our drive. Together, as a community, we stand stronger, striving to make this world a kinder place for every animal. Join us in celebrating life, love, and the little angels that walk beside us.
Intake + Surrender
Every year, 6.5 million animals enter shelters nationwide. Our rescue works to keep animals from being euthanized in these shelters two fold. We serve as a last resort for animals set to be euthanized by tagging them directly from the shelter. We also work with the public to get veterinary care and find homes for their pets and unwanted or dumped animals. Our goal is to keep them from ever going to the shelter in the first place.
Rescue + Rehabilitate
Our rescue does not discriminate when it comes to animals in need; we are the last hope for countless medical and elderly dogs and cats. We recover animals from substandard conditions and give abused, neglected, malnourished and diseased animals a chance to start over. This involves removal from an unhealthy environment, veterinary care, and integration into a foster home until the pet is ready to find their forever home.
We are grateful and rely heavily on our dedicated fosters who selflessly open their homes and help us continue saving lives. Fostering not only to reduces overcrowding in shelters, but gives a pup a chance to live in a home. We learn their personality, needs, training level, etc. which allows us to make as accurate a match as possible when finding a forever family.
Spay + Neuter
By spaying or neutering your pet, not only are you helping to control the animal overpopulation crisis, which results in millions of healthy dogs and cats being euthanized, but your pet is guaranteed to live a longer, healthier life as this helps circumvent many heath and behavioral issues. We have many resources to help find a low cost spay and neuter clinic in your area.
Once our animals are healthy and ready for their adoptive homes, we load them up and hit the road! We recently opened up our transport-adoption locations to cities all over the United States. Our goal is to move as many animals as possible out of the overpopulated areas and transport them to cities and states with greater needs for family pets, under crowded shelters and higher adoption rates.
Every year 8 to 12 million dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are euthanized because there are simply not enough homes for them. All of our rescues are in need of a second chance: lost, given up, or abandoned. By choosing to adopt, you are giving them a new life in a loving home. Find out more about our adoption process.
