The PVAS Mission

Palm Valley Animal Society provides lifesaving care, comfort, and compassion to animals in need by engaging the hearts, hands, and minds of our community.


Palm Valley Animal Society (PVAS) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit animal welfare organization serving four municipalities in Hidalgo County, as well as the county at-large. PVAS operates two facilities in Edinburg, TX, taking in more than 15,000 animals on behalf of 550,000 residents each year. PVAS is on a journey to save lives and create a safe, humane community for all of the Rio Grande Valley.


PVAS accepts stray and surrendered companion animals from municipalities and counties who contract our services regardless of age, health, or breed, making us the largest intake facility in Hidalgo County, and one of the largest intake facilities in the country.

Our Goals

PVAS’ goal is to save every animal that can be saved through progressive adoption, foster care, and rescue transfer programs.

To do this, PVAS offers a number of additional programs designed to help pets in the shelter, in the community, and in your home, including pet resources, self-supported rehoming, wellness medical services and pet food pantry.
