Welcome to Animal Angels

Nestled among the rolling hills of North Central Texas is a 38-acre haven for abused and abandoned dogs. As close to heaven as they will ever be this side of the Rainbow Bridge is a special place known as:


Animal Angels



Some of them were lucky enough to be picked up on the side of the road, where they had been abandoned, wandering aimlessly, bewildered and wondering why their special person had left them there alone. Some were rescued from abusive situations, to be given a second chance at a normal life. Still more were injured or handicapped in some way, and others had various medical problems. Countless others had been thrown out or sucked out of the beds of pickup trucks. Many more were merely part of an unwanted litter, discarded like trash, on the side of a road. Of course, some have lost their beloved owners to ill health or death, or financial difficulties, and have no place to go. Many are in their golden years of life, needing only a secure place to call home, where the love is unconditional and supper is always on time.


1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.
3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.
4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.
5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.
6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.
7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.
8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.
9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.
10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.

~ Take a moment today to thank GOD for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of them. Life would be a much more dull and less joyful experience without God's critters.
~ We do not have to wait for Heaven to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth, and has four legs!

Featured Pet



Mark was abandoned along with Jewel and two other dogs at a large animal sanctuary. Not having the facility or means to take care of all of these babies they called upon Animal Angels for help.  We gladly went out and picked them up.  Mark is a great little guy with a lot of personality. See how he poses so sweetly for his closeup?  He is a little over a year old, and the perfect size.  Mark gets along great with everyone he meets.  Mark is just waiting for the right family to come along; someone willing to open their hearts and home to an abandoned little freckle-eared hound.

If you would like to meet Mark please contact us for more information.
