North Texas Giving Day is a day where miracles happen. The excitement as we see results on the leader board for our little charity is overwhelming. Texas Best Choices Animal Rescue is a unique Rescue and sanctuary on 22 acres where saving four legged lives is our mission! We are a small organization making a big difference in the lives of animals in this area for 12 years, saving 484 precious dogs and pups just last year! It is such an honor to sit among the well-known charities with huge support and see our donor list grow and donations increase, thanks to the generosity of our own North Texas community. Being a 5th generation Texan brings a swell of pride for the goodness we see in friends and strangers alike on this fantastic day of giving!
Texas Best Choices Animal Rescue is saving owner surrendered animals as well as strays of all breeds to prevent them from ending up in high kill shelters. Families and the animals surrendered receive the benefit of our ability to help. We also pull animals from local high kill area shelters to save their lives. Each one has a unique story and is so deserving of a chance to find love in the form of a forever family. Volunteers are paramount in our ability to provide a happy place while each one waits and they all love being lap dogs no matter their size!
Bullet was one of those lucky ones that came to us without hope. He had a bullet wound in his lower leg and the family that found him had no means to provide care for him. We saved his life through emergency care at our facility until Veterinary care could be arranged. North Texas Giving Day funds gave us the confidence to say “Yes” to a needy animal like Bullet even though we knew surgery and his after care would be expensive. Bullet became a tripod but remained a loving boy throughout all of his trauma. He found a wonderful home soon after he recovered and the circle of hope was complete!
North Texas Giving Day is all about hope, too! Our community grows stronger by coming together to give on this one special day. Every type of need is represented and it takes us all to make a difference. We hope you will follow your heart and give to those charities that are near and dear to you as well as one like ours. We may be new to you, but with generous donors, we will continue to provide lifesaving solutions and hope for many more four-legged friends in need!
