Salvation Animal Rescue was formed in September of 2016 by a group of ladies who were passionate about animal welfare. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that strives to reduce the number of stray animals in our community. We also aim to reduce the number of animals put to sleep by providing low-cost spay/neuter vouchers monthly through our S.N.I.P.S. program which began in March of 2018. These vouchers are sold for $25.00 to anyone in Angelina County regardless of income. We also provide bi-yearly vaccinations and microchipping clinics for the community. We hope to educate the public about the need to foster and rehabilitate dogs rescued from shelters so that they have a chance to live a joyful life in a safe and loving home. It is through community support and donations that we can continue to accomplish our mission and grow this organization. We are proud to say that at the end of 2019 that we were able to expand our community outreach programs with the addition of our Doug’s Hugs Food Pantry. We have paired up with Meals on Wheels and other programs that serve low-income Senior citizens or others that need assistance with helping to feed their beloved companions.

Our Mission 


Salvation Animal Rescue believes our responsibility to animals, as well as our community, is vital and all lives have value. As an organization, we strive to make a significant difference in the lives of people and animals in Lufkin and the surrounding areas. This is accomplished by rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming animals as well as providing education about responsible pet ownership, population control, animal abuse, and neglect. We give voices to animals who are unable to speak for themselves.

Our rescued animals are placed in the loving arms of responsible, committed, caring, foster homes and eventually permanent forever homes, following a thorough foster and/or adoption process. Animals in our care receive appropriate veterinary care, up to date vaccinations and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption unless they are too young (in this case the animal will be scheduled for the spay or neuter at the appropriate time).  All animals are tested for temperament and behavior issues so potential adopters are aware of their needs. We assist animals in distress regardless of age, breed, size or ease of placement within our financial and emotional limits. We work in the community to improve and strengthen the relationship between humans and animals.









We work for a cause not applause!
