Who We Are

Llano Animal Rescue is a 501(c)3 organization; Tax ID 83-1688416

We're in the business of saving dogs!
We have adopted out over 150 dogs and
placed over 90 dogs with other Rescues to be adopted.

Llano Animal Rescue became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in July 2018.

Our mission is to find wonderful, loving forever homes for dogs that we obtain from the Llano city shelter/Animal Control. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept dogs that are strays or need to be rehomed directly from individuals. 

If you've found a stray dog or cat in the Llano city limits, or you need to surrender an animal, please contact the City of Llano Animal Control at 325-247-4158. 

If you've found a stray in the county of Llano, outside the city limits, please contact the Llano County Sheriffs Dept

at 325-247-5767.

Also, we are unable to take in any cats or kittens at all -- please contact Hill Country Cats at 830-598-9883 if you need to rehome cats or have stray cats or kittens at your home.

We're located in Llano Texas, a small town in Central Texas. We've been blessed to place dogs in new homes all over Texas, and even in other states. 


Many dogs end up in the Llano City Animal Shelter due to neglect, overpopulation or being surrendered by their owners. Unfortunately, the City Shelter is not a "no-kill" shelter -- this broke our hearts, so we had to do something

to save more of these precious lives. So we currently retrieve dogs from the City Shelter and have them checked by a veterinarian to receive all of the required vaccinations, make sure they are healthy and have them spayed or neutered as soon as possible. We start loving on them and caring for them and identifying any special needs. We work to socialize them so they can be adopted or find a foster home.  Llano Animal Rescue is a no-kill rescue.

We will also work to educate the community on the necessity of spaying/neutering and keeping tags & collars on your pets.

We are completely operated by Volunteers - no paid positions - so we are always looking for Volunteers to help with our wonderful dogs.

Please contact us if you can help. We can always use people to love on & walk the dogs and help feed & clean.

Help Make a Difference

Our organization always appreciates the generosity and involvement of people like you, with every contribution going towards making Llano Animal Rescue an even better organization than it already is.


Donations are always needed to pay for the ongoing care of the animals we have at our facility while we seek to find a foster home or have them adopted. This includes food, shelter, utilities, cleaning, vaccinations and spay or neutering. There's quite a bit of on-going costs involved in taking care of these sweet pups.

If you'd like to make a monetary donation, please click the "Donate" Button. We're able to accept payments via credit or debit cards and Paypal.  You can also donate to us via Venmo. Look under Businesses and you'll find Llano Animal Rescue. 

If you don't want to donate online, you can send a check to us at our mailing address. Please make the check to Llano Animal Rescue and mail to:
