About Atascosa Animal Allies

Atascosa Animal Allies is a group of unpaid volunteers who serve the Pleasanton Animal Shelter in Pleasanton, Texas. We were formed in August 2017 when the City of Pleasanton needed help getting animals transferred in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.  Some of our current members offered to house the animals. Through this emergency, we saw a great need for a rescue group in our city.  We became a 501(c)(3) in October 2017. We do not own a facility, but instead, foster out of our homes. Since our inception, we have rescued over 5600 animals.


  • Rescue animals from high-kill shelters and the community.
  • Rehabilitate animals while fostering them.
  • Rehome cats and dogs by adopting them out or transferring them to other no-kill rescues.
  • Teach Responsibility to the pet owning population.
  • Host low cost spay/neuter clinics for pets in our community to enrich the pet population and to keep them out of shelters.
  • Created a cat Trap-Neuter-Return program in 2018.
