Frequently Asked Questions
Is Shelter Pet Safety Net the same charity as Bastrop County Animal Shelter Helpers?
Yes. We changed our name, but everything else is the same.
Can you help with my pet's medical expenses?
Unfortunately, we do not have funding to assist pet owners with pet medical expenses – we can only assist with spay/neuter surgery cost.
