Mission Statement

Etosha was first established in Castroville, Texas, in December 1988. It is now located outside the city limits of Seguin, Texas. Etosha provides care for more than 130 rescued dogs year round. All dogs are heartworm tested, neutered and properly vaccinated prior to adoption. In many cases, such as in the larger breeds, hip and/or elbow x-rays and heart checks may be performed prior to adoption. Dogs are well-socialized and their temperaments carefully evaluated before they become available for adoption. They receive basic obedience training as well. Healthy dogs of good temperament are never euthanized at Etosha. If an adoptive home is not found, rescued dogs live out their lives as permanent residents of the facility. Etosha provides large, grass and dirt surfaced runs (no concrete) for its rescues. Individual wading pools are provided for each dog during the summer months. Shelters consist of wood sides and tin roofs, as well as wooden dog houses or the insulated "igloo" type. Crates are available indoors for young puppies, sick or injured dogs, and those who cannot tolerate unusually hot or cold conditions. Etosha is a nonprofit association that exists solely on public donations. It is managed on a daily basis by one person and several generous foster homes. Tax- deductable donations of cash, food and building materials are always needed and greatly appreciated. Contact Etosha at etosha@texas.net or phone 830-401-0150 bonney williams


We need volunteers to help us feed, water and clean up after the dogs. Volunteers who are physically unable to do this can help with office work such as answering the phone, setting up appointments (with prospective adopters) and printing out copies of our most current newsletters. General labor (cutting grass, repairing shelters) is also needed and greatly appreciated. Transport coordinators and drivers are needed occasionally to assist in getting a dog to his/her new, forever home. There is always something to do at Etosha, and we cannot do it without help from volunteers. Please call our director at 830-401-0150 or our assistant director at 512-858-0955 if you are interested in our volunteer program. Donations of cash, old sheets and blankets, dog food and medical supplies are desperately needed at this time.
