Yaqui Animal Rescue -

No Profit, No Kill.

If it stands on four legs or waddles on two, Yaqui Animal Rescue has a large family of animals that are looking for a loving home and need your help.


We are Yaqui.

We are a non-profit no-kill animal shelter located on our 80-acre ranch in Sullivan City on the edge of the Rio Grande Valley. Our goals and passion are rescuing and caring for those that otherwise could not care for themselves. Finding a loving home for all of our four-legged friends is what keeps us moving forward.

The Stray Project

Our Monthly Goal (if funding is available):
25 animals for spay/neuter

Yaqui Animal Rescue will taking on a very ambitious project during the coming year.  In the 20+ years we have been rescuing animals, the stray animal problem in the Rio Grande Valley seems to be getting worse. There is no end in sight if we continue in the same path.

Over the years, we keep using the little resources that we have to rescue an endless supply of animals. Therefore it’s imperative that we tackle the problem in a different way. We believe that Spay and Neuter is the only answer. We have been in talks with local low cost clinics to resume mash clinics like we used to, but on a larger-scale. This would mean that we would pick up stray animals, transport them to the clinic, operate on them, and return them.

We have been doing our best to spay/neuter and rescue/re-home as many animals as possible, but it is impossible to do it alone. We need funds and sponsors to finance this ambitious, but not impossible project. If any one of you can help in any way, because much help is needed, please donate below.

Please help us help these innocent animals. They deserve a decent life. God Bless the world and it’s critters!
