I took in a foster through this rescue that was severely emaciated. He was given a second chance because of them. Their vet is amazing, respond well, and our foster has made an amazing recovery.

WCNKAS is an amazing organization that is dedicated to saving animals in need. I have had the personal privilege to volunteer side by side with other volunteers and have also fostered dogs for this group. Every volunteer in this organization puts their heart and soul into caring for the physical and emotional needs of the abandoned, abused, neglected, and starving animals that find their way to this organization. Animals are fostered, rehabilitated, and then adopted out to loving and caring families.

I'm so proud of this 501c3 NPO - this organization has worked tirelessly and selflessly over a short period of time to achieve miraculous results! Starting with nothing, thru sheer hard work and fund raising - whilst ensuring the safety and rescue of many, MANY stray and abandoned animals off the streets of Wilson County - they have acquired a piece of land, worked hard to raise the money for utilities to be connected whilst overseeing the rescue and rehoming of 74 dogs 'seized' locally - founded by the Director, Alena Berlanga, with a handful of local volunteers they continue to work hard fund raising, rescuing, supplying food/medicine and vet care to strays and owners of animals in need of help with their pets to achieve the ultimate goal of building a shelter on that land !! All done with the support of private individuals and local volunteers and contributors. An amazing organization ran with outstanding leadership!!

I was blessed with the opportunity to foster two groups of sweet babies. 5 little Lab mix puppies that where 12 weeks old. This organization rescued these babies allowed me to love them for 2 weeks while them hunted an area that would help find them loving forever homes and transported these puppies along with other sweet animals to their forever homes. As a new foster mom I had a lot of questions regarding the care of the puppies and no matter the time of day or night the ladies associated with Wilson County No Kill Shelter where there to answer my questions.

The second group of puppies where 4 Chihuahua Terrier mix puppies that where rescued at 2 weeks of age after their mother died. The Shelter found foster moms that got to bottle feed these babies every 3 hours. The Shelter has prepared social media ads to reach forever homes for these sweet babies.

Wilson County No Kill Shelter has saved so many animals but they also have blessed those of us that have been granted the opportunity to become foster parents. I became a foster mom to the 4 bottle feeding puppies just 9 days before I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The ladies with Wilson County No Kill Shelter saved me too.

Wilson County No Kill Animal Shelter (WCNKAS) goes above and beyond to take in abandoned and neglected animals with minimal resources. Recently WCNKAS took in 60 plus animals that were being neglected by a local group in La Vernia, TX (BNG Foster Program) when BNG became overwhelmed and couldn't care for the animals properly. The Wilson County Sheriff's Office received numerous calls from local residents in regards to the dogs. Due to the condition of the dogs the Sheriff's Office contacted the WCNKAS. WCNKAS took the animals, provided medical treatment for all the dogs, spayed/neutered the animals, provided shots, and returned all the animals back to health. After the animals were returned to health, they were all adopted out to good homes. WCNKAS is a non-profit, run by passionate volunteers that truly care.

Due to the responsible and caring individuals running the WCNKAS these animals had a happy ending and are with loving, caring and responsible pet owners. Otherwise no telling where these animals would have ended up.

WCNKAS has dealt with many similar scenarios and have turned a really sad situation into a blessing for many pet owners.

WCNKAS is diligently trying to raise money to build a facility. Just imagine what WCNKAS can accomplish once they have their facility built!

Keep up the great work WCNKAS! Hope Wilson County residents realize what a great service you're providing for their community and support/donate to the cause.

I had to put my precious Zsa-Zsa to sleep in July of 2018. I visited with the volunteers of the Wilson County No Kill Animal Shelter shortly after. They were very compassionate about my recent loss and were more than willing to help me find another fur baby. They were so supportive and wonderful and it is very obvious the devotion they put into working non-stop to help the animals of Wilson County. I have donated to this organization and will continue to do so as they work so hard to make such a positive impact on our community.

Wilson County No Kill are passionate and truly care. There was a small dog in an empty field next door to me. It was freezing cold for days and I couldn't catch her. I finally did and Alena Berlanga drove from Floresville to San Antonio, took her to be fixed, examined, shots, the works. She found her a wonderful home. Thank you with all my heart.

I work for a small city in Wilson county and we have an animal holding facility. We only hold animals for 3 days then they are to be euthanized. Since working with WCNKAS we have not had to euthanize any.They have saved many lives and have been a blessing to help us. As a worker I stress every time we have a unclaimed animal and WCNKAS has turned that stress into success. I personally have adopted a dog from them that was one of the worst cases of neglect they had. And am the proud owner of Justice thanks to their care of him.
