About Us

Friends of Bastrop County Animal Shelter was formed in 2008 and is a volunteer driven nonprofit organization whose primary mission is to support programs of the Bastrop County Animal Shelter.

We participate in a variety of community events to raise awareness of the Shelter as a great source for a new pet. We also hold off-site adoptions in cooperation with local area businesses. Our support also includes providing the Shelter with needed equipment and comfort items for the Shelter’s pets, and soliciting grants for shelter improvements and expansion.

Our Mission

The mission of the Friends of Bastrop County Animal Shelter is to increase pet adoptions, promote spay/neuter, and provide funding to the Shelter to support the humane care and treatment of animals while in its care.
