About Us

Texas Unites

Texas Unites, founded in 2015, is an animal welfare support organization serving Texas and its surrounding states.  Texas Unites was a merging of two well respected organizations, North Central Texas Animal Shelter Coalition and Texas Federation of Humane Societies, both with a long history of supporting the animal welfare community.



Our mission is to provide a system of information, support and guidance by:
• Enhancing professionalism in the animal welfare industry
• Strengthening the human companion animal bond
• Promoting respect and compassion for all life
