Second Chance Shelter

The CenTex Humane Society is a nonprofit organization.  The humane society runs the Second Chance Animal Shelter, the only no-kill shelter in the Central Texas area. The mission of the society is to care for homeless animals and find them good homes.  Several Central Texas area veterinarians work with the shelter, volunteering their time and expertise to provide medical support to the animals housed at the shelter.

The shelter charges $75 to adopt a dog or cat, but included in the fee are shots, health tests, deworming and a spay or neuter.

The shelter also accepts abandoned and owner-surrendered animals on a space-available basis for a surrender fee which varies according to the spay/neuter and health status of the animal/s.

Unlike other shelters in the area, Second Chance does not operate on tax dollars and depends on donations collected by the CenTex Humane Society.

The CenTex Humane Society is a nonprofit organization and donations are tax-deductible.

Donations can be sent to:
CenTex Humane Society,
5501 Clear Creek Rd., Killeen, TX 76549
Or donate online

Our shelter opened in March, 1998. It is 5,000 square ft and is currently home to over 100 animals. A dedicated staff of full-time employees and volunteers work seven days a week caring for the animals by inspecting their health, keeping them cleaned, fed, watered, and excercised.

When dogs & puppies are taken in by our shelter, they are bathed, dewormed, given DHPPC and tested for bordatella and heartworms.  They are given a brief wellness exam by our vet and given a rabies shot. If they are old enough, they are started on heartworm preventative and spayed or neutered. 

Cats & kittens are fel/fiv tested and if found negative we give them FVRCP shots. They are given a brief wellness exam by our vet and given a rabies shot. If they are old enough, they are give feleuk and spayed or neutered.  

We are a NO KILL shelter.  The animals here are kept until they find homes.  That is why donations mean so much to our shelter.

Animals in our care are euthanized ONLY if they are terminally ill, or too aggressive to be adopted.
