The Animal Rescue Crusaders of Texas is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) all-volunteer animal rescue and adoption organization based in Plano, TX. Our mission is to rescue and find homes for at-risk animals. We save animals from local shelters in the Collin, Dallas, and Fort Worth area, rescue abandoned animals, and take in owner surrenders to the extent that our resources allow. 

Once we rescue an animal, we immediately provide any veterinary care needed, including vaccinations and spaying/neutering. We then place our animals in foster homes. Through our foster homes, we provide a safe environment where we can nurture and rehabilitate our rescued animals. We promote our animals through adoption events, Petfinder, our website, social media, and our presence in Petco stores, in order to find them safe and loving forever homes. Meet and greets between potential adopters and animals are required and are a great way for the adopters to learn more and see if they will be a good match.

Additionally, we actively promote animal welfare and the prevention of cruelty to animals. We also educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering, and assist local TNR (trap, neuter, return) projects for feral colonies.


Fundraising is how we continue to do what we do! Our fundraising events would not be possible without our generous sponsors! We greatly appreciate those who have contributed to our cause, and want to recognize the sponsors below:
