Hill County Paw Pals, Hill County, Texas

Campaign:   Request for Funding


A plea for help goes out to all as a letter writing campaign begins.  We need to get commitments for funding from county and city officials in Hill County.


We remain optimistic that our elected officials are convinced of the need for an animal shelter and advocacy program that’s available to all voters and tax payers.  Our optimism is bolstered by the generous support of citizens from Hill County and others, including Willie Nelson and philanthropists, Cheryl and Sam Wyly of Dallas.

Our animals need us now more then ever. While Hill County and city officials show that they’re willing to solve problems that result in abandoned animals and over-population, we need to politely remind them that we STILL have much work to do. We need to encourage them to work hard together to create a program that is sustainable and to provide operational funding that open the doors of a new facility.

Please ask Hill County Judge and Commissioner’s Court, and City Councils of Hillsboro and Whitney to fund efforts to reduce animal abandonment, over-population and to provide animal advocacy programs to increase adoptions and reduce euthanasias.  As animal advocates, we need to let them know that we will not stop our fight until we help unwanted Hill County pets and animals.
