This is the best group of people with whom I have ever worked. I've adopted 3 cats from them over the years. I have looked at other animal shelters, but keep coming back here because of the people.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have watched their community outreach programs grow in creativity and strength. I am proud to have them in our city.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage them to take advantage of free advertising from the Houston Chronicle.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the caring people.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

so dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

stop euthanizing animals.

Ways to make it better...

I had room for more animals in my home.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

realizing how important it is to our community.

One thing I'd also say is that...

they do the job better than the other shelters in the area.

Reviewed web site, found the dog I was interest in and began the adoption process. The Houston Humane Society staff was very helpful in the adoption process. The Houston Humane Society does a great job of getting the word out though facebook to help get as many animals as possible placed in forever homes. I greatly appreciate the work they do for the animals who need a second chance.

The Great!

I have many pets and most of them have been spayed or neutered at the Houston Humane Society. They have been great to me and to my pets. Thanks to their low-cost services, I am able to be a more responsible pet-owner.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

some of their adoption drives and have contributed financially and with pet food donations. Their clinic is wonderful. The staff is very efficient and helpful.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it where people did not have to put the cost of their services on a credit card. Some people do not have them.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The great care and compassion my pets received.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

both adoption counselors and clinic workers. They were all very friendly, compassionate, and efficient.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the fate of so many animals by placing them in homes, spaying and neutering, providing medical help and rescue.

Ways to make it better...

appointments were made. I realize that they cannot make specific appointments, but maybe they could see people in groups, say from 8-10am 10-12 am, etc

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

bad people that have broken into the facility and stolen major amounts of property. This kind of tragedy really hampers a good organization.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this is a big-hearted well-run organization. But they need the constant support of the community and donors.

As a "poor college student", I wasn't able to get my new dog spayed at any of my local vets. Their prices were ridiculously high and way out of my budget. I decided to check out the Houston Humane Society's clinic prices. My family has adopted all 5 of our dogs from HHS. Every time we had a great experience and found the perfect companion. I knew I could trust them and decided to get my dog spayed at the HHS clinic. The price was unbeatable and they took wonderful care of my little girl. I really like how they offer their clinic services to everyone. It just shows how committed they are to bettering animals' lives. In order to prevent more strays, it is vital we spay and neuter our pets. HHS understands this and provides these services to everyone at a low price.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Adopting several dogs from them. They also were the best place I found to spay my dog.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Create new locations around the Houston area.

They way they help animals find good homes. Also, the way they are so committed to helping all animals.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save 10 million animals!

Ways to make it better...

No complaints here.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of space for animals. As well as trying to raise enough money for everything.

Tell your story here and help others understand this charity From the moment I stepped foot into the Human Society in Houston, I was immediately impressed. They have a beautiful facility, and their staff was extremely kind and helpful. I inquired about adopting a cat (or two!) and I was given a quick form to fill out, then I was ushered in to meet the cats. I really enjoyed talking to the volunteer in the Kitty Condo's, as she was able to tell me about the different personalities of the cats I was meeting. With so many adorable cats to chose from, it was hard to only pick two! I've had Natty & Bruno for almost a year now, and I'm so glad the Humane Society was able to provide me with a great experience and such sweet companions.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the ease of adopting my two cats.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

suggest a 2nd location- something on the North side of Houston!

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the knowledge and helpfulness of the staff- both paid and the volunteers!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly and knowledgeable. They knew the personalities and histories of the cats available for adoption, which helped us narrow down our choices.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help more animals by expanding and creating new facilities around the greater Houston rea.

Ways to make it better...

it was closer to North Houston. that's my only complaint!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding!

One thing I'd also say is that...

I'm so thankful for the Human Society. I love my cats, and I couldn't imagine my life without them!

There are many worthy organizations that help animals. Sadly, sometimes the organizations aren't well run or aren't very effective in accomplishing their goals. The Houston Humane Society is constantly working to raise awareness, stay in touch with the public, raise funds, and put the funds raised to good use. They have a great facility, they offer wonderful care to the animals and they are very helpful to members of the public seeking to find a new pet. I feel comfortable in knowing that any money or effort I donate is going to be used well and is going to help animals directly. Not just in helping and finding homes for them, but in helping raise awareness in the public, which I think will result in a culture that cares about the well-being of animals.

The Houston Humane Society is awesome! I was looking to bring a new dog into my home and it was important to find a good match for not only me, but also with my other dog. The staff was so patient and helpful in my search and it was very clear to me that they were just as interested in their animals finding a good home and match as much as me. I looked at several rescue groups and organizations, but the HHS really cared and went the extra mile to help me. They are doing such AMAZING work in saving so many precious animals that are abandoned or from abusive puppy mills. I am there biggest fan and proud to say that Jenna, my newest little family member, is triving and surrounded in love. Thanks HHS!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help find more awareness and funding for the great work that they do!

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The time, effort, and care that the staff took with both myself as well as all of the abandoned and abused animals.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

helpful, dedicated, caring, and educated. The work they do comes straight from the heart and it shows!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help SO many more animals so that they don't have to be put down. Money means more awareness and possibly even another location more central to make it easier for more people to adopt these precious animals.

Ways to make it better...

the location was closer to where I live. I knew that they had an excess of great dogs due to a large puppy mill rescue, so I decided it was worth the trip all the way out there to check them out vs. something here closer to me.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money/funding. More funding means more exposure, awareness, education, workers/vets, so that their work can continue.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The Houston Humane Society is an amazing, well-deserving organization.

My husband and myself pick up our new puppy this afternoon. I have been so pleased with the Houston Humane Society. Everyone in this organization gives 100%. They all treat these animals as if they were their own. Now that we are almost through with our whole process for our new baby girl we have two neighbors coming to pick out new dogs. I have adopted dogs in the past from other Humane Society Organizations but nobody compares to the HHS.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Our lives will forever be changed from this experience. We are welcoming a new baby in our lives that is a real joy. She is coming from the HHS to be the new princess in our home.
