Who We Are

Formerly known as Bastrop County Animal Shelter Helpers, we’ve changed our charity’s name to Shelter Pet Safety Net.  Everything else is exactly the same! We have the same mission, strategy, programs, and leadership.

We fund emergency medical care for sick and injured animals admitted to the Bastrop County Animal Shelter.

We help homeless dogs and cats in Bastrop County, Texas by reducing the need for sheltering,  aiding the animals in the county shelter, and helping sheltered animals get adopted.

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.  There are many options for getting your pet vaccinated at low cost in Bastrop County, see our link here.   Many veterinarians offer credit to help pet owners pay for medical expenses. There is also a lot of variation in medical costs at different medical practices. SPSN often sends animals to Fayette County Veterinary Clinic for good care at lower cost.
