Texas Critter Crusaders (TCC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization helping to meet the unmet needs of the animals at the City of Taylor Animal Shelter. The shelter staff do an amazing job with extremely limited resources, but there is so much more that is needed. TCC provides financial support to shelter animals for various care and services including emergency surgeries, urgent medical care, heart-worm treatment, spay and neuter, training and more, with the goal to provide a healthy, humane quality of life for shelter animals while they are awaiting adoption.

In addition to providing financial assistance, TCC also works to raise awareness about the Taylor Animal Shelter and animal rescue through public education of adoption, foster and volunteer opportunities, as well as hosting adoption and microchip events throughout the year.
