Save a Life – Adopt a Pet in ETX

Palestine- The Biddell Animal Rescue Center (BARC- The Anderson County Humane Society) has joined forces with MYETX in hopes of finding homes for homeless pets in Anderson County.

Animal shelters are your best source when looking for a pet. Shelters have a great selection great selection of adult animals, and many of them also offer kittens, puppies, and purebred pets. (Purebreds account for about 25 to 30 percent of a shelter’s dog population).

Many pets at your local shelter are waiting for new homes because they were obtained by people with unrealistic expectations of the time, effort, and money required to sustain a lifelong relationship with their pet. National figures indicate that about half of the animals in shelters are euthanized for lack of good homes. Animals at your local shelter are just waiting for someone like you to give them a new home.

I am delighted that MYETX has given our local shelter in Palestine a spot on their site! This will certainly help the many animals awaiting the forever homes they deserve. Many thanks to Dana for helping spread the word about BARC & the Wednesday's Pet program! No doubt that it takes a village...

My post was in response to the person who said they couldn't find any available pets to adopt. Their post is not here anymore...?

Try and enter your zip code. That will bring up many adoptable pets. Best is to go to the shelter nearest you if you can or visit or call a local pet store (Stores mainly have cats though). Petsense in Palestine has precious kittens right now needing homes! Tammy is a foster mom and has many dogs needing homes. Find her at She lists her phone number there. Also there's a wonderful rescue gal named Jacki who often comes in from Frankston with precious puppies at the Palestine Walmart. Her # is 903-714-4687. If you're looking for something in particular just call the local shelter and tell them. They will call you if they have anything you might like. Good Luck and thanks for wanting to adopt!
