Finding a Friend

is easier than you think

OUr mission

To build a community that promotes animal welfare through compassionate services to animals and people.

Who we are

The Humane Society of Central Texas provides adoption, rescue and foster opportunities for the homeless animals at the Waco Animal Shelter located at 2032 Circle Road in Waco, Texas. Thanks to our community and supporters, even with an annual intake of about 4,000 animals, we have attained No Kill Status, meaning that at least 90% of animals that come into the shelter leave here alive for wonderful new homes!


There are so many ways you can donate to support the lifesaving mission of HSCTX. Regardless of how you donate, your donation allows you to become a Member of HSCTX for one year! 



Find your next best friend. View cats and dogs waiting to find their forever homes! Let our professional Pet Matchmakers find the perfect pet for you!



Nonprofit rescue partners are critical to our lifesaving efforts! They take animals from the shelter and find them loving homes, which allows us to devote more time to the animals that are still at the Humane Society.



Foster families take these animals into their homes and work with them to become more adoptable. Help an animal to become more adoptable by bringing them home for 1 to 6 weeks!



Every act of kindness you do through volunteering helps save lives at the Waco Animal Shelter! Volunteers help with every aspect of our lifesaving work. Join our team today!
