I thought this organization is a heaven place for temporary animal shelter, but, in reality, this is a killing place for drop-off animals. I dropped off a very healthy cat on 10-20-2014 at Houston Humane Society (after paid $35 and give my cat 10 cans of cat food) due to moving from a house into an apartment. On 10-22-2014, I found an adopter with big house. My friend came on 10-22-2014, the Spanish guy working at this organization informed us that he had euthanized or killed my healthy cat on 10-21-2014.

This Spanish guy working at this organization also told us that Humane Society will euthanize any animal older than 10 years old. Don't understand why this organization didn't post his statement in their website. If I knew this problem, I would never turn my cat into this killing organization.

My wife and I have been looking for a second dog as a companion pet. The staff at Houston Humane Society helped me find another breed that play well together. Both our dogs are the best of friends to themselves and us. Thank you Houston Humane Society!

I am currently disabled and have pets that I have in my care. I felt at a loss when I became disabled and could not get shots etc. for my dogs. I found the Houston Humane Society and they were a big help. I was not the only one there and as I spoke to many of the other clients. I was told over and over that they would not have been able to keep their pets well and current in their vaccinations. All of my dogs are rescue dogs and I am glad that there are places like the Houston Humane Society available for people to find a forever home for an unwanted animal.

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.
