Completing Families Since 1945
Gulf Coast Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter that houses and cares for approximately 3,000 dogs and cats each year. We were founded on January 15th, 1945 by Frances and Harvey Weil. Corpus Christi natives may remember our original shelter on Navigation Boulevard. However, in April of 1998, we began operating out of our current facility on Cabaniss Parkway, which was generously donated to us by Tom and Cora Keeler. Since our founding, we have been dedicated to providing the best care possible to the animals under our roof, as well as the animals in our community.
We strive to save as many lives as possible by tagging from local euthanasia lists, transporting animals throughout the country, and placing pets into loving homes. We strive to promote responsible pet parenting and the humane treatment of all animals through our Education and Outreach Program. As we continue to rapidly grow, we aim to be the safety net for our community and their pets. We look forward to working with the public to keep pets happy, healthy, and in their homes – where they belong.
