Cars for Critters

Do you have an old vehicle that you don't need anymore?  The Adoption Center will take your old vehicle and turn it into money to help the animals.  The vehicle does not need to be operable, but does need a clear title, four inflatable tires and all its parts.  Once the Adoption Center has your information and the vehicle's information, an auto auction company will contact you to pick it up.  All the proceeds from the auction will go to help the animals and it is a tax deduction for you based on what the vehicle sells for.  Contact staff at 817-427-6570 for more information.

Your donations are critical to our success and we thank you for your support!
