Humane Society of Harlingen sees an increase in adoptions


The Humane Society of Harlingen (HSH) is one step closer to reaching their goal of being a no-kill-shelter.

The shelter says it has seen an increase in adoptions as people seem to be turning to pets for comfort amid the pandemic.

HSH saw a 94 percent save rate during the month of March.

“That rate keeps getting smaller and smaller for euthanasia. Historically shelters, like ourselves, last year we would have to euthanize for space that’s not something that we do anymore fortunately and that’s not something we want to go back to. Our whole idea of becoming a no kill shelter doesn’t mean the end of euthanasia it just means the end of unnecessary euthanasia,” said Luis Quintanilla, Humane Society of Harlingen executive Director.

Quintanilla ads the shelter is waving adoption fees and providing curbside adoptions.
