Operation Kindness

Operation Kindness was founded in 1976 and is the oldest and largest no-kill shelter in North Texas. We care for homeless or unwanted cats and dogs in a no-kill environment. We never euthanize an animal to make room for another. We care for all the animals we take in until they are adopted.

SARA Sanctuary

As the only no-kill animal sanctuary of its kind serving Austin, San Antonio and surrounding Texas communities, SARA (Society for Animal Rescue and Adoption) seeks by example to illustrate the value of companion animals; and thus the irresponsibility of allowing an unending cycle of reproduction, neglect and abuse of these animals. We have not waivered from our original goal of a true no-kill policy - the animals live out their natural lives regardless of age, temperment or health.

Smiling Dog Farms

Smiling Dog Farms is a Sanctuary, not a traditional rescue. Our dogs come from shelters, rescues and private parties all across America. They may be deemed 'unadoptable' because they have bitten someone, have medical issues, have other behavioral challenges, have grown old, have become a burden or have just run out of time at a shelter. If a dog is breathing, he qualifies to come live here!

South Texas Animal Adoption Resource (STAAR)

S.T.A.A.R. is a no-kill organization. We often find abused dogs, who have become afraid of people and are skeptical of everyone. Through our volunteers and loving foster homes, these once-abused animals grow into healthy, trusting companions, which we are then able to adopt out to loving families. Although our efforts have had positive community response, there remains much that we have been unable to do.
