Humane Society of East Texas

Who We Are

The Humane Society of East Texas was established in 1963 by concerned citizens after they visited the City of Tyler’s inadequate animal impoundment facility. At that time, animals were housed in one small building regardless of the health of the animals. The Society requested that the Tyler impoundment facilities be turned over to the newly founded Humane Society of East Texas. Construction of the animal shelter was completed in 1968 and the Humane Society of East Texas’s animal shelter was opened. Sources of funding for the Humane Society’s animal shelter include Friends of the Shelter membership dues, animal adoptions, animal surrender fees, our annual fund-raisers held each spring and fall, and private donations and contributions.
