The Humane Society of Northeast Texas, a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, was formed in
1972 by a group of Longview citizens who wanted to ensure that the community’s homeless and unwanted
animals were treated with compassion and kindness. To provide this service, the HSNTX built and continues to
operate the animal shelter located at 303 Enterprise Street in Longview. The HSNTX is funded through public
donations, fees charged for adoptions and other services and contracts for animal sheltering services with
municipalities in the region. The HSNTX animal shelter is an open admissions shelter, meaning that all animals
brought through its doors are accepted and the staff and volunteers are dedicated to finding homes for as many
of them as possible.
In March, the HSNTX took in 445 animals and the save rate was 67%. The Humane Society of
Northeast Texas is accepting volunteer and foster applications and welcomes partnerships with rescue groups
across the U.S. to expand its ability to provide a positive future for the animals entrusted to the shelter. For
