About Us

The Humane Society of Central Texas (HSCT) is an advocate for the community goal of maintaining a no-kill status at the shelter.  Staff works hard to maintain a 90% or higher live-exit rate.

We are contracting partners with the City of Waco at the Animal Shelter at 2032 Circle Road, which is an open-admission, regional, shelter serving the cities of: Bellmead, Beverly Hills, Hewitt, Lacy Lakeview, Lorena, Marlin, Mart, McGregor, Moody, Riesel, Robinson, Waco, West and Woodway.  The population served is estimated to be around 260,000 people.

The Humane Society of Central Texas provides adoption, rescue, and foster opportunities for the homeless animals at the shelter, as well as community education regarding responsible pet ownership.

The HSCT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization operated solely on donations from the community. Without the support from you we are not able to help these precious animals in need.

The shelter has reached no-kill status for one-year, but the doors are never closed to admitted animals making community support extremely important.

We are incredibly grateful for your support! Please consider a tax-deductible donation towards our mission, so we may continue saving the lives of our community's pets!

The Humane Society of Central Texas is a proud recipient of funding from Maddie's Fund®, helping to achieve a no-kill nation #ThanksToMaddie.

Donate today and help us save more lives. There are many ways you can help!
