Etosha began in the year 1988 as a rescue for unwanted hunting dogs and purebred Great Danes. By December, 1990, Etosha was formerly organized, with only two board members and a handful of volunteers. The facility (then located in Castroville, Tx.) was expanded to accomodate an increasing number of homeless dogs (both purebreds and mixed-breeds). Injured wildlife such as deer, raccoons, squirrels, rabbits, and an assortment of birds were also rescued, nursed back to health, and returned to their natural habitat. In March,1995,Etosha moved to its present location on five acres outside the city limits of Seguin, Texas. Our land did not flood until the big storms of October, 1998, but from that time on it now floods with each and every rain. We are actively seeking a suitable place for the relocation of the shelter. Etosha provides care for approximately 200 rescued dogs year round. All dogs are heartworm tested, neutered and properly vaccinated prior to adoption. In many cases, such as in the larger breeds, hip and/or elbow x-rays and heart checks may be performed prior to adoption.

Dogs are well-socialized and their temperaments carefully evaluated before they become available for adoption. They receive basic obedience training as well. Healthy dogs of good temperament are never euthanized at Etosha. If an adoptive home is not found, rescued dogs live out their lives as permanent residents of the facility.

Etosha provides large, grass and dirt surfaced runs (no concrete) for its rescues. Individual wading pools are provided for each dog during the summer months. Shelters consist of wood sides and tin roofs, as well as wooden dog houses or the insulated "igloo" type. Crates are available indoors for young puppies, sick or injured dogs, and those who cannot tolerate unusually hot or cold conditions.

Etosha is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) association that receives no outside funding. It is managed on a daily basis by one person and several generous foster homes. Tax-deductible donations of cash, food and building materials are always needed and greatly appreciated.
