Friends, Daisy is a Taylor Animal Shelter resident who needs our help! She is in need of medical attention to remove a mammary tumor that is currently the size of 1 and ½ softballs – and growing rapidly! This tumor is affecting her quality of life and ability to walk. The staff at the shelter recently had to wrap her chest in a sheet to keep the tumor from dragging the ground and potentially breaking open. The good news is that the tumor is non- malignant, and preliminary diagnostic results indicate that with surgery and proper after-care, Daisy can be good as new, and should recover quite nicely. This will require surgery and after care in a foster home, including post-surgery heart worm treatment.
Because Daisy is part of a bonded pair, and her companion also needs heart worm treatment, we are raising funds for Daisy’s surgery and heart worm treatment, and Whiskey’s heart worm treatment. The estimated veterinary cost for Daisy’s surgery is $800. The heart worm treatment will cost $300 per dog or $600 total.
Please come out and join us at the Texas Beer Company this Friday for Pints for Pups, enjoy good beer, great specials, and help us raise donations to cover the costs of Daisy’s surgery and after care. Check our EVENTS page for more!

Welcome to the Texas Critter Crusaders website! We are a small, passionate group of volunteers dedicated to helping fulfill the unmet needs of the animals at the Taylor, Texas, Animal shelter. We’re so excited to get this non-profit organization off the ground to help the animals! The Taylor Animal shelter is a small, city-run shelter, and like many (most?) shelters in small rural towns, they have very limited resources.
The staff and volunteers do an AMAZING job loving and caring for the animals that come into their care. As shelter volunteers ourselves, we saw a need and wanted to help even more. With the formation of this non-profit organization, we now have a way to help raise funds that are tax deductible for donors that can do even more to help with providing food, toys, medical care, outreach, education, and enrichment for the animals we all love.
We hope you’ll join us and get involved in a way that speaks to your heart. We’re just getting off the ground so we’ll need your help (and perhaps a bit of patience too) as we grow! Follow us and the Taylor Animal Shelter on social media, join us at events, contact us about volunteering, consider making a donation or any combination of all of those! The animals and the people who love them are eternally grateful!
Thanks to so many generous supporters, we were able to share the great news in March that we raised enough money to send Spot to school to help him get over his anxiety issues that he had developed after being at the shelter so long. We have an even better update to share with you now! The facility found an awesome new forever human for Spot and they’ve sent in this adorable photo of him. They are now calling him Oreo. He is very loved and we couldn’t be happier and more grateful to you for helping!
His adopter is completely in love despite him chewing up a pair of $120 Louis Vuitton shoes…He is now on gourmet dog food that his new human COOKS for him! His new human is now calling him Oreo! He loves sleeping in the bed with his new human and pushing his human in the middle of the night just so he can get directly in the middle! 😊❤️
