Humane Society of Northeast Texas, a private non-profit 501(c)(3)
organization, was founded in 1972 by a group of Longview citizens
who wanted to ensure that the community's homeless and unwanted
animals were treated with compassion and kindness. In order to
provide this service, HSNTX built and continues to operate the animal shelter, located at 303 Enterprise Street in Longview. HSNTX is not run by the city or county; rather, we are funded through contracts with the communities we serve, public donations, and fees charged for adoptions or other services. Our shelter accepts all animals brought through its doors and we are dedicated to finding homes for as many of them as possible. We are passionate about the animals in our care and we work long, hard hours to provide a service that both our community and the animals in it deserve.
Provide resources to affect a positive difference
in the lives of people and animals by advocating humane
care, education, and loving homes for all pets.
Dedicated to serving our community by providing
a safe haven for animals, inspiring awareness and compassion,
and promoting the human-animal bond.
