About Animal Friends of Washington County

In 2006, there was a notable absence of low-cost spay/neuter/wellness clinics between Houston and Austin, as well as between Waco and Corpus Christi. Recognizing this gap, Animal Friends of Washington County embarked on a mission to address the issue. Through meticulous planning and fundraising efforts driven by private donations, they successfully established a clinic to cater to the needs of residents across several counties, including Austin, Brazos, Burleson, and more. While these regions remain the primary focus, the clinic warmly welcomes clients from Harris County and beyond, embodying a commitment to serving communities far and wide. Our Clinic is focused on spay/neuter surgeries plus vaccination and other wellness services.

Animal Friends of Washington County (AFOWC) is committed to preventing animal overpopulation, protecting abused or abandoned animals with loving care, and providing an environment where people can enjoy their furry friends. 

Since the clinic's completion in 2008, over 45,900 spay/neuter surgeries have been successfully completed. The dedicated staff consistently attends to over 100 clients each week, and the clinic can accommodate up to 30 animals in a single day.

Our Objectives

To fulfill our mission, Animal Friends has established four key objectives:

1. Establish a facility offering low-cost and no-cost spay/neuter and wellness services, exemplified by the Animal Friends Clinic, which opened in June 2008. 


2. Create a safe and pleasant environment where people and their pets can interact and play freely. This lead to the opening of the Dog Parks at Animal Friends.

Our Objectives


3. Collaborate with local government to develop a suitable facility for housing unwanted, abused, and abandoned animals, facilitating their adoption.


4. Act as a comprehensive resource, providing training and information on all aspects of animal welfare.
