Programs:

The Houston SPCA is committed to all animals and provides services to thousands of animals a year, including dogs and cats; small mammals, such as guinea pigs, hamsters and rabbits; birds; farm animals, like horses, cows, goats, pigs and others; and native wildlife through our affiliate Wildlife Rehab and Education organization. We are the only shelter in the Greater Gulf Coast area with the ability to provide humane, temporary shelter to big cats like lions and tigers and other exotic animals like primates and bears.

 

Our shelter has the capacity to hold dogs, cats, birds and small mammals without overcrowding them or keeping them in discomfort. All animals in the shelter receive care and socialization by our staff and volunteers, and dogs are taken on daily walks outside, so that they do not spend all day in their kennels. Hundreds of orphaned, sick or injured animals receive temporary shelter, love, and care in volunteer foster homes before placement. The Houston SPCA also fosters healthy adoptable animals, instead of euthanizing them, when space is needed for incoming dogs, cats, and small mammals. 

 

All animals adopted from the Houston SPCA are spayed or neutered prior to placement in their new homes. We do not let any animal leave our shelter without first taking this step. Not only is spaying and neutering the cornerstone to reducing pet overpopulation, but it also helps to prevent health problems and behavioral issues, such as aggression. Animals that are sterilized live longer, more fulfilled lives, and will not contribute to the pet overpopulation problem that leads to the deaths of millions of animals each year. 

Mission:
The mission of the Houston SPCA is to promote commitment to and respect for all animals and to free them from suffering, abuse and exploitation.

They are in it for the money, period. They take in animals that will give them a big news story and then get some big donor money. They hang on to these animals despite other facilities better equipped to handle them offering to help. I am talking about Bears. The director called me to ask what ... more »

The Guidestar website says that the Houston SPCA was given the "GuideStar Seal" because they are "committed to transparency". This is not true. I have personally asked the Houston SPCA to provide their intake and outcome records. I have asked them twice yet they refuse to even respond. Even ... more »

The Houston SPCA routinely kills all pit bull and pit bull mixes, yet says on their website they are 100% no kill of adoptable animals. There is no good reason to still be saying that an entire breed of dog is not adoptable. They also have a higher than average kill rate for pets in their care. I ... more »
