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 dedicated 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to animal welfare across Hidalgo County, including four key municipalities. With two operational centers in Edinburg, TX, PVAS plays a vital role in our community, providing shelter and care to over 10,000 animals annually. Serving a growing population that now exceeds 888,000 residents in Hidalgo County, we continue to strive towards making a positive impact in the lives of animals and our community members alike. PVAS is on a journey to save lives and create a safe, humane community for all of the Rio Grande Valley.


PVAS accepts stray, sick, and injured animals from municipalities and counties who contract our services regardless of age, or breed, making us the largest intake facility in Hidalgo County.

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.
