McLennan Animal Rescue Coalition Every Life Matters

P.A.S.S. Program

Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender

MARC’s P.A.S.S. Program provides McLennan County residents with the local resources needed to resolve a variety of pet-related issues. This program is modeled after the Austin Pets Alive! program. The ideal outcome is for the pet to stay in his or her current home.

Our goal is to provide you with the resources you need!

We respectfully ask that you pro-actively utilize the resources provided to you in Step 1 before going on to Step 2. This allows MARC to focus our limited resources on those who genuinely need Step 2.

Step 1

  • Email us to receive a free copy of the McLennan Animal Resource Guide. This guide quickly answers most of the most commonly asked questions we are asked. Many of the partnering groups on this guide are able to help with things like low-cost/no-cost spay/neuter, Trap-Neuter-Return for outside/community cats, temporary pet food assistance & more.
  • If you have found a dog or friendly cat, be sure to submit a post to CenTex Lost Pets. Please do not post outside/community cats, as the outside is their home. Instead, contact CommCat Waco.

Step 2

  • If keeping the animal is not possible, we encourage you to submit a Facebook post to the Urgent Animals in Waco Facebook page. One of the volunteer Administrators from that Facebook page can then “Repost/Share” to help spread the word about the pet in need.
  • This offer is also available to McLennan County residents who need to find a good home for a Found dog or Found friendly (indoor) cat, and have already posted to CenTex Lost Pets, but no owner reclaimed.
