NEED HELP WITH YOUR PET?
At PVAS, we understand that life happens, and sometimes, that means that you might get to a point where it is difficult to keep your pet. However, we also understand that you may like to keep your pet if only you had the resources to make that happen.
At PVAS, we know that the shelter is the last place that we want a pet to be. Our goal is to help connect you to resources that will help keep your pet in a home and out of the shelter. We are committed to working together to find the best possible solution for you and your pet.
Palm Valley Animal Society is an open-admission animal shelter serving five cities and one county in the Rio Grande Valley. Each year, we accept more than 20,000 animals into our facilities.
The large majority of our sheltering is allocated for housing stray animals that need shelter and care. While we do have a foster program, only a small percentage of our animals get the luxury of living in a foster home. For owned animals, the shelter should be an option of last resort.
