Chris Gonzalez, CEO and Founder of Texas Pet Rescue, digs into the remains of what used to be a Deathless Refuge.

The once safe haven for stray animals was inherited by his mother in 2017.

But on Wednesday morning, the building burned down.

“We have completely renovated the location. I mean, I’m just at a loss for words right now, ”Gonzalez explained.

According to Gonzalez, investigators believe the fire started in the electrical box. Now he is looking for ways to rebuild himself.

“Well, we were hoping to expand and expand it until we could once again become a deathless refuge in Brownsville,” he said.

The damage is currently estimated at $ 35,000.

Gonzalez is now asking the public for help in continuing to operate the facility and keep these animals safe.

“It’s devastating. I really want to ask for help from everyone, help from the community. We have helped the community enormously to save animals. We want to expand it so that we can accommodate more, ”he added.

If you would like to help the shelter, you can find them on their Facebook page under Texas Pet Rescue.
