Rescue Partners

Bugsy the Pittie

Pasadena Animal Shelter is fortunate to work with many private, not-for-profit rescue groups that help  assess, care for, and place our shelter pets in desirable homes. Some of these rescues are breed-specific, while others are need-specific. Whatever the model, we're so grateful for these rescues and their continuing, lifesaving support.


For a list of the rescues with which we currently work, please email adoptions@ci.pasadena.tx.us.
