Please note: PALS is NOT a shelter or rescue. We help with homeless pets, pets with homeless people, low income families, and pets with senior families in Hays County. We help feral cat colonies with food and spay/neuter. Adoptable cats and kittens of those colonies are put in foster homes and found forever, indoor homes.



Through the years, a group of volunteers united to help free-roaming cats and formed TNRM-San Marcos. Their mission to reduce euthanasia of homeless cats brought them together with Pet Prevent a Litter (PALS) of Central Texas in 2008 this union resulted in the formation of PALS TNRM. PALS endorses TNRM, and supports volunteers in TNRM efforts through training and technical support, advocacy and community outreach.


Sometimes, cats (usually kittens) rescued from the streets can be tamed and adopted. As soon as the kittens cats are healthy, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and socialized they are available for adoption.
