Our 4-Legged Helpers Inc. 501(c)(3) nonprofit focuses on helping pets in DFW/Texas area rural shelters/communities that are seldom seen by anyone other than animal control.  

We rescue pets from these rural shelters/communities by finding other rescue orgs/adopters/fosters through networking, taking pictures, publishing on social media/emails and do everything we can to save them.  These are pets most often in dire need and at immediate risk of euthanasia.  

Our organization pays for veterinarian examinations, spay/neuter, heartworm treatment, heartworm tests, vaccinations, boarding, health certificates, gas money for transport, and anything a pet may need including in-state/out-of-state transportation costs.  We partner with other no-kill 501c3 nonprofit organizations not only locally but also in states such as Maine, Connecticut, and New York.  

In 2021 alone, we saved approximately 700 dogs/cats from rural shelters/communities in the DFW area and in Texas.  

Our Needs

Grants, funding, donations, volunteers, fosters, and people willing to help transport a pet in the DFW area.  We so appreciate your help!


4-Legged Helper's mission is to help save the lives of animals at grave risk of euthanasia in high kill animal shelters, with a focus on rural communities whose pets are often never seen by rescue groups or the general public. We network with both in-state and out-of-state no kill 501(c)(3) rescue organizations through obtaining individual pet photographs and creating write-ups that can be viewed via emailing(s) and social media. Once a pet is chosen, we work to ensure the safety and release of the pet from the animal shelter or often life threatening situation, and work closely with shelter staff, volunteers, veterinarians, fosters, rescuers, transporters, and boarding facilities to provide any needed medical treatment, health certificates, vaccinations, testing, and transportation costs for in state and out of state transport. We save the lives of pets in need that would otherwise lose their lives. We have no overhead costs and every donation goes directly to help a pet in desperate need.


Donations, fosters, DFW area people willing to help transport a dog or cat from a shelter to a local 501c3 rescue organization. Thank you!
