Seagoville Animal Shelter is located in Seagoville, Texas, less than 25 miles from downtown Dallas. They have only 9 dog kennels and 6 cat cages, yet take in more than 1300 animals per year.
They do not have a large budget. There are no grants, resources or benefactors. What they do have is love for animals and the determination to find them homes.
So what’s the big deal? Well, Seagoville is a municipal facility and not a non-profit, so they must follow the rules set forth for them. What makes them unique is they are determined to be no kill, which is the county does not support.
Seagoville has not killed an animal since November 2010, and have found homes for every single animal in their care by the time their number came up.
This little shelter is doing what animal lovers and advocates everywhere wants to see – animals adopted rather than killed. They network tirelessly to find the animals homes.
Seagoville Animal Shelter needs our help and support. They don't have a lot of money, and barely get by with providing the basic care of their charges.
So my fellow animal lovers and advocates, I ask you to help. Visit and like their Facebook page. Share and network their adoptable animals in the photo section. Donate to them if you can.
They have a fundraiser going and will raffle a beautifully restored 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air that was donated to them. The money raised will go toward a new, bigger and better shelter. Purchase a ticket yourself if you can, and please share the raffle. Tickets are only $10 or 12 for $100.
Please help Seagoville continue to be no kill. They are doing what my local non-profit humane society cannot find it in their hearts to do. I’m sure the same is true for many of you who read this.
