Protecting our Pets and Animal Shelter
Vincent Morales believes in protecting our county’s animal population. When he became Commissioner, in 2017, he saw the needs of our County’s animals and animal shelter.
That’s when he created Fort Bend PAWS – a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the goal of raising funds and awareness for Fort Bend County Animal Services.
Through the generosity of so many donors, Fort Bend PAWS has raised over $75,000 to fund programs for spay and neuter services, for treating heartworms, and for increasing the number of pet adoptions.
Fort Bend PAWS works with the Fort Bend County Animal Shelter and generous donors to fund projects both large and small to benefit FBCAS and the pets at the facility. This non-profit gives our community a support framework to provide the best in care for our pets and for the people who love them.

★ Led a county-wide citizens initiative to protest appraisals – Over 11,000 residents joined with the Commissioner to demand accountability and transparency from the Appraisal District – Vincent brought statewide attention to the problems and coverage from the Houston Chronicle and KPRC-TV

★ Serving our juvenile justice system: Commissioner Morales is a board member of the Texas Juvenile Justice Department Board and serves Texas’ mission to produce positive outcomes for youths, their families and communities
★ Pursuing state & federal grants: Vincent has consistently voted to increase grant funding opportunities for our local law enforcement and first responders to help offset those costs from our property taxes
