Take action today, to save thousands of lives tomorrow.

Imagine Baytown as a no-kill city. Imagine that instead of homeless animals dying due to lack of space, an arbitrary time limit, lack of exposure, untreated medical conditions, undesirable physical traits, age or physical disability, they were instead saved and adopted into loving forever homes. Can you see it? We can.

A Life to Live is committed to ending the killing of homeless cats and dogs within the City of Baytown's municipal animal shelter. We are an incorporated 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, located in Baytown, Texas, that was established out of our love and passion for providing an opportunity and better quality of life for homeless pets. We offer a no-kill alternative that provide life-saving programs and invaluable resources for pets and pet owners within our community. To make our next big impact, we are seeking funding for a facility and life-saving local programs for pets and their people. This will allow us to expand our capacity to serve the needs of our community.

Approximately two million homeless dogs and cats are killed annually in America's shelters. That means that nearly 5,500 animals are killed every day. In the City of Baytown, approximately 2,000 animals are killed within our municipal city shelter annually. This means that nearly 5 animals are killed every day. They are being killed simply because they don't have a safe place to call home.

More than 500 communities around the United States successfully run no-kill shelters, saving over 90% of the animals that enter their facility. Some of these shelters are managed by municipalities, while others are run by private organizations. Some organizations take in thousands of animals a month, and others take in fewer than 100 a month. With the help and support of the community, and with the no-kill mission at heart, communities across the nation are saving thousands of lives.

With your help and support, we, too, can create a no-kill community in Baytown, Texas. We believe that every pet has a life to live; they deserve the chance to live their full lives. We're here to provide that opportunity regardless of breed, treatable existing medical or behavioral conditions, age or color. Together, we can create a no-kill community.
