Mission Statement

New Hope Animal Rescue saves the lives of dogs and cats that are at risk of being killed in shelters. Whether an animal has been discarded or overlooked due to age, breed or health status, we provide the medical care and emotional rehabilitation needed prior to adoption. We also encourage our community to play a role in reducing shelter overcrowding by educating around the importance of spaying and neutering beloved pets.

 

Our Story

Our favorite breed is rescued.

Volunteering at area shelters, we found ourselves bringing animals home and paying for their vet care and finding them loving homes. While making a small impact, we knew we had to do much more. We established New Hope Animal Rescue to create a network of volunteers, fosters and donors to help us save more animals from kill shelters and to educate the public on how to prevent the over pet population.

spay and neuter your pets

It's about more than rescuing animals — it's about raising awareness to combat the cause of our nation's over pet population. 

We work to create awareness that 2.7 million companion animals are euthanized in U.S. shelters every year. This number could be drastically reduced if people stop supporting breeders and adopt (and foster!), spay/neuter, and microchip their pets to increase the chances of being reunited if separated.

Spaying and neutering your pets is vital.   

If you know of someone in the greater Austin area who cannot afford to spay or neuter their pet(s), please contact us to see if we can help!
