About County Roads Rescue

We are a rescue in Cherokee County, Texas who formed in May of 2016 to help save  the abandoned and unwanted animals living on the county roads. We also rescue from surrounding high kill shelters in East Texas.  We are a 501c3 non-profit and donations made to us are now tax deductible.

So far this year, since May, we have rescued 127 animals, 93 being from Cherokee County. We will occasionally rescue from shelters outside of Cherokee County when there are no other options available for the animal.


Our rescue efforts have been on hold for the past two month’s while we try to get our new facility ready for operation!

However, we still have rescued three animals this month.

Kiefer, Alecia and Atlas.

Kiefer was rescued from the urgent list at the Jacksonville Animal Shelter. He is a sweet boy and good with other dogs

he will be available for adoption soon!


Alecia was also rescued from the Jacksonville Animal Shelter’s urgent list. She is very friendly but a little on the shy side. She will be available for adoption soon as well.

Atlas was an owner surrender. He is a big boy and is about a year and a half old. Hes very cuddly and affectionate. He will be available for adoption soon!

This is our new office building. We have about 2 acres to work with and are planning to build several kennels, play yard and a cage free Catery for our kitties. Things are coming along slowly but surely and we cant wait for this next step! If you’d like to donate towards our facility construction costs please check out our fundraiser-
