In 2021, about 200 dogs and 500 cats were euthanized in Galveston County shelters just because they didn't have a safe place to call home. We need your help to change that!
Lifeline of Galveston County is leading the no-kill movement by:
Galveston County, Texas.
The "No-Kill Gap" is the number of pets that need to be saved for the county to reach no-kill status.
If we could work together to save 425 more dogs and cats each year, Galveston County could reach No-Kill status.
The path to achieving no-kill Galveston County
Animal Shelters, local rescue groups, and individuals like you are working together to save homeless dogs and cats in Galveston County. Together we can create a no-kill community.
What Does No-Kill Really Mean? No-kill, as a principle, means saving every dog and cat in a shelter that can be saved. However, it's important to have a clear bench mark to make this easy to measure. That is why when a shelter, city, or county reach a 90% live-release rate (meaning 90% of pets are leaving their shelter(s) alive), they are considered "no-kill."
