About Our Shelter:

The Houston Humane Society (HHS) is a non-profit animal shelter dedicated to eliminating cruelty, abuse, and the overpopulation of animals. We receive no federal, state, or local funds and rely solely on donations and special events.
HHS provides a wide variety of animal welfare programs to Houston area residents and their pets, including pet adoptions, humane education and Houston's only $30 spay/neuter clinic that is open to the general public.
There are many different ways you can help us to reduce animal suffering, whether it be through adoption, volunteering, education, participating in our special events throughout the year, or making a donation to support our programs.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our Adoption center is open seven days a week. Our Clinic is open every day except Thursday. We are located at 14700 Almeda Road, just 2 blocks South of Beltway 8. For more details please see our website http://www.houstonhumane.org

Our Adoption Process:

All potential adopters must fill out an application for an animal. Upon approval of the application, it is a $85 fee to adopt the animal. This includes Spay/Neuter, rabies vaccination, Microchip, and a pet adoption kit, and unconditional love from your new family member. A value of $274 all for just $85.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
