I have a colony of feral cats in the neighborhood. I trapped them and took them to the Houston Humane Society Low Cost clinic to get fixed. They make it very affordable to spay/neuter 4 of them. If I took them to a private clinic, it would be more than $1000. This Trap-Neuter-Release project wouldn't be possible. One time, when they were fixing one of my feral cats, they found a bullet in his leg. They took it out and did not charge extra.

Because lots of people bring their pets there, the clinic is always busy, but the staffs are very efficient and patient. I wish they have more money to hire more people to share the workload in the clinic.

The Houston Humane Society is doing a lot of actual work to help animals and their owners. Definitely deserves 5 STARS

I just turned in 6 beautiful kittens, because I already have 8 more kitties in my backyard and I thought that baby cats have more chances for adoption. Dennys (the receptionist) was very nice to me and sweet when I was talking while crying because I love all the creatures that step into my yard especially those kitties and will miss them all. I have already get them spayed and neutered with rabbies vaccination before I went there to let them know that I care about those kitties and all are healthy to put into the adoption. If only I can keep them all I will. So pls , TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THIS ORGANIZATION AND TELLING THEM TO NOT TO ADOPT IN THIS PLACE,, WHY YOU HAVE TO TAKE AWAY THE CHANCES OF THE ANIMALS TO HAVE A HOME. Please, those animals inside are innocent. Give them their chance, please.

I adopted my dog from HHS, and he has been the greatest addition to my family! The staff and volunteers took the time to help me find the right pet, and although they are extremely busy I felt like they took the time to really listen. I would highly recommend this organization to anyone looking to adopt a new pet. Not only will you have the satisfaction of giving a homeless pet a forever home, but you'll be treated great during the process.

The Great!

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

Their fabulous adoption department

Ways to make it better...

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

Give them endless donations to help further their cause. They not only do pet adoptions, they also have a low cost clinic and real cops that go out and investigate animal abuse.

I wanted to write this letter of gratitude for all the hard work everyone does at your facility. I adopted Lucy (Gina) from you back in April. She was heartworm positive and I was told she was a R.A.I.D.E.R. rescue from November, and would probably have a lot of problems. I can tell you that Lucy is the sweetest, friendliest, smartest dog I’ve had the pleasure of sharing my home with. She made it through heartworm treatment, without a hitch and has a clean bill of health to show for it. She has no behavior problems, in fact when I tell people her story, they think I’m exaggerating. From day one she walked on her leash, went to the door when she needed to have potty break, and has not chewed on anything that is not hers. She enjoys cuddling up in her chair by the window, in her snuggy, and basking in the sunshine. She likes to be brushed and have her nails painted. She likes to walk to the Discovery Green, downtown and bark at the horses. She has lots of toys, but prefers to play with me and any little kid she meets. She is also, very tidy and does not make messes, and loves to take baths! I’ve been spreading the word and advising anyone looking for a new addition to their home to visit HHS. The staff was friendly, efficient, and informative. There was a young man who helped me, brown hair and worked at the front desk, I cannot remember his name- but I can tell you he was very helpful and appreciated. I was nervous about visiting HHS, I thought it would be crowded and unsanitary, such as other rescue groups that I had been to. Although there were a lot of homeless animals, everyone of them seemed to be well cared for, and in a clean comfortable space. The facility is lovely and in a few more months when Lucy is ready, we will visit again and see if we can find her a playmate. Until then I will keep spreading the news and singing the Houston Humane Societys praises!

The Great!

I chose this vet because friends recommended it. The staff were friendly and professional. Now I take my other pets there for shots and treatments. I was so impressed by the care they gave the animals I became a volunteer.

The Great!

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Very friendly and nice. They took great care of my dog.

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!
