Grimes County Animal Rescue was established as a non-profit corporation for the purpose of constructing an animal shelter to serve the residents of Grimes County, Texas. Our board is passionate about finding a solution for the current stray dog and cat situation that Grimes County faces.

In April 2023, we completed construction and opened the new Christy & Dan Agan Animal Shelter  This is Grimes County’s first dog and cat animal shelter. The shelter was constructed in association with, but not under the management of, Grimes County. Grimes County Commissioners Court graciously approved the shelter being constructed on county land in Anderson and in close proximity to the county jail.   The Grimes County Sheriff’s Department provides inmate labor for animal care and daily maintenance of the facility. 

The animal shelter is able to accommodate future growth within the county. It is important that the shelter remains useful to the citizens of Grimes County for many years to come.

As a non-profit corporation, Grimes County Animal Rescue asks that the local community members, businesses, charities, support groups and others assist in the funding support the ongoing operations of the animal shelter.
