EDINBURG, Texas – The roller coaster ride of 2021 is behind us, but before we get too far into 2022, we wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all that you’ve done to save lives in the last year.

In 2021, more than 15,000 animals came through our doors under a wide variety of circumstances. Because of your support, no matter their situation, we were here to help. And for the first time, in addition to the animals in our shelter, we were also able to help more than 3,000 pets and their people in our community through our pet resources program. From food to supplies to rehoming outside the shelter, we are saving more lives than ever because of you.

Teddy is one of the lives you’ve helped save. He started as a PVAS pet back in 2019. When adopted the first time, like all pets at PVAS, Teddy was given a microchip. In August 2021, Teddy found himself back at the shelter, and when we contacted his owners, they said he’d been missing for more than a year and, unfortunately, they were unable to reclaim him.

Teddy went back up for adoption, and while he was waiting with us, he spent time in foster care and in the shelter. Thanks to the networking of our rescue team, we were able to match Teddy to a rescue group that specializes in herding dogs.

Very quickly after leaving us, Teddy landed in foster care with Leslie, and before she knew it, Teddy had won her heart. She made the adoption official last month, and she says that of all the herding dogs she’s had in her life, Teddy is absolutely the best. The pair have already started agility training, and Teddy has even won over his famously grouchy, furry older sister.

The PVAS intake team, foster care team, animal care team, enrichment team, foster caregivers, rescue team, the rescue who pulled him and now his foster turned adopter have all had a hand in changing the life of this one pet. 

And you.

Your support changed Teddy’s life and can change the lives of so many others. 

For all the pets like Teddy, we need your continued support. 

Give today and be the hand up in changing lives for pets and people in the Rio Grande Valley.
