Saving lives isn’t cheap. HSNBA’s contracts with the city and county only cover about three days of care for each animal they bring to our shelter. If the animal stays longer than 3 days, or needs any veterinary or other special care, we rely on your donations to cover those costs.
Meet just a few of the animals we’ve been helping with your donations!
Meet “Navi”! She came to the shelter as a stray, scared, skinny and with a milky film over her eyes. She couldn’t seem to see anything but shadows, if that, but managed to steal all of our hearts! We took her to the vet to see if anything could be done and it seemed she had possibly been exposed to a bad virus while in utero. We tried some steroids and medicated eye drops but the veterinarian didn’t think there was much to be done, she had obviously just been dealt a terrible hand in life. But we didn’t give up on Navi, we searched and searched for the right home for her and her angel found her! She was adopted into a loving home and is now enjoying puppy hood!
This young affectionate chihuahua/rat terrier mix was found with a badly mangled leg. Even though she must have been in immense pain, she was tender and loving with everyone she met. We knew we had to help her. After a full series of x-rays, it became obvious we could not save her leg and it was amputated. She is recovering nicely here at the shelter and as soon as she is strong enough, she’ll be be spayed and will be ready for a new home!
Bunny was found by a Good Samaritan who found her at a local gas station. She was weak, in shock and couldn’t seem to walk. The sad realization was that she has been kicked. A trip to the vet determined she had serious nerve damage to her front right leg and the only thing that could be done would be to remove it. She is currently growing and learning how to be a three legged cat in foster care. As soon as she is strong enough, she will be spayed and ready for her new forever home!
Blinker was picked up by Animal Control dodging traffic. She had an issue with her eye that needed to be surgically repaired. It’s donations to HSNBA that make this possible so from the animals of the shelter, we thank donors like you!

Pet Art Donations
If you have original pet art, we have a wall to hang it on. HSNBA accepts original dog, cat, and rabbit art in watercolor, acrylic, or oil mediums. To donate pet art please fill out the relinquishing of rights form and deliver your art to the shelter. The form also requests traditional artist information (piece title, medium, subject of piece, date of creation, artist name, artist contact information). We ask you to relinquish your rights so that we can use your image in promotional platforms and marketing materials. We might put your image in a collage or place it in an auction to benefit the Humane Society of the New Braunfels Area. The form is located here at http://www.hsnba.org/how-to-help/pet-art-donations/.
