Mission: Coastal Bend Small Breed Rescue was founded in 1999 due to the tremendous neglect and cruelty perpetrated on the animals in South Texas. We are a small group of caring people who take in all types of small breed companion animals,up to 20 pounds, when owners cannot keep them, as strays, or from the local kill shelter. We take them in, get them healthy, altered and we place them into new homes as soon as possible. We are dedicated to socialization of the dogs and to educating the new owners as to how to be a responsible pet owner. C.B. Rescue is also dedicated to educating the public - especially school age children - about the benefits of having a pet in the family and being a responsible pet guardian.
