The Happy Tails Fund

Monetary donations are put into a fund called "The Happy Tails Fund". This fund was created to help pets that come in very sick or injured. The shelter does not have a Veterinarian on staff but we do work with local Veterinarians to make sure our pets are cared for and healthy. When a medical need arises that is beyond what our budget allows, we use money from this fund to treat the animal. This allows us to save the lives of many sick or injured animals that come into the shelter. All donations to the Shelter are tax deductible.

Please call or email the shelter for more information about making a donation to The Happy Tails Fund today! 

Mobile Adoption Unit Fundraising

Cleburne Animal Services is doing something really exciting for our pets! We are raising funds to purchase a mobile adoption trailer so that we can save even more lives through adoptions. Our shelter is “Open Intake” which means we take in any and all animals (stray, unwanted, abandoned, etc.) from the city of Cleburne. Thousands of animals come into our care every year. We have an excellent adoption program and we work very hard to make sure our adoptable pets are placed in loving, forever homes. We would like to do more. The purchase of an adoption trailer would allow us to save hundreds more animals every year but we need your help!

Our goal fundraising goal is $35,000 but we would greatly appreciate any donation you can make. This includes the cost of the trailer, all of the needed specifications, and a full wrap on the trailer. All donors will be recognized on our Facebook page. Donors that contribute $5000 or more will be recognized as a sponsor on our Facebook page and Website with a link to their business if desired. Those donors will also be honored with a “plaque” on the outside of our mobile adoption trailer. Donors that elect to sponsor the entire cost of the trailer will be recognized on all media sites and by having their logo cover the entire rear section of the trailer.  This rolling billboard is excellent advertising for businesses. We will also provide a donation receipt letter so that donors can claim their tax deduction.

For more information about making a donation towards our mobile adoption unit, please contact Animal Services Manager, Mindy Henry at 817-556-8895 or [email protected]
