I love the Houston Humane Society! I love that they are trying to help so many animals in the Houston area. Their shelter is incredibly clean and inviting. The amount of animals that come through their doors is staggering, and most will find homes in a very short period of time! Those that don't go home right away, will live at the Houston Humane Society until the perfect family arrives! I love Houston Humane Society so much, I have been a volunteer for 14 years! I have fostered many dogs- becoming a failed foster and adopting my last dog, recently! I love Houston Humane Society so much, both my kids were raised there! They learned how to care for animals and how to be a better citizen to all! The Houston Humane Society is amazing place!

My family came to see the dogs on 3-14-22, we fell in love with Goku ( Now Arlo) and we decided to adopt him. We picked him up on 3-18-22. The morning of our 3 day Free follow up 3-21-22 he seemed sick, throwing up, not wanting to leave his kennel, watery poop, not wanting to eat or drink water no matter how I gave it to him. We brought him to the clinic and explained everything and they did a parvo test which came out positive. The clinic told us he had a 9/10 chance that he would die from it. They gave us the option to take him home and conduct treatment but it would get a lot worse and it will be hard on him and it will be even more heartbreaking on us because we will see him deteriorate. They also told us he had to have been exposed to parvo 7-10 days prior to adopting him meaning he was exposed before he got home. We came back to the adoption center to sign him over because we were already heartbroken just hearing all of this information given to us. We just got him 3 days ago and we didn’t expect all of this to happen. When we were talking to the people at the adoption center figuring out the refund and the lady told me to sign this paper handing him over not knowing there were more options. As soon as I signed the paper they told us that he was going to go to a recovery center which he would have a chance of survival. They also told us he would have a 9/10 chance that he would survive. All of this confused us so much and it’s very overwhelming. The lady also told us he would never catch it again so he would be okay for the future and then someone else told us he can get it again. All confusing us so much more and making this whole process extremely stressful. In the contract we signed it states “ I will take this animal to a veterinarian for a checkup WITHIN 3 BUSINESS DAYS (Monday thru Saturday) AFTER LEAVING THE HHS. If a veterinarian diagnoses this animal as sick within 3 business days of adoption. I will have the following options : bring the animal and written diagnoses to the HHS clinic for treatment at HHS’s expense ; OR have the animal treated at a NON-HHS vet clinic at my own expense.” After I had signed the paper signing him over without knowing all of my options. I was told I had the option to pay for the treatment. Under this contract it stated that the HHS will cover the cost of treatment If the animal is diagnosed within those 3 days, which he was diagnosed at the HHS clinic. This whole experience has been extremely stressful and difficult to say the least.
I have emailed adoptions and I haven’t heard back.

I became involved with the Houston Humane Society years ago when I attended their Summer Kids Camp (Camp Pawsome). I remember that being loads of fun when I was young! Now that I’m back living in Houston after graduating from college, I volunteer here on the weekends and am having just as much fun doing that! The Houston Humane Society has a dedicated team that is passionate about taking care of the animals, finding them great homes, and running a high quality facility. From walking the dogs to playing with cats and introducing the animals to eager potential adopters, it’s an enjoyable and fulfilling experience all around. I’m so thankful to HHS for the opportunity to be involved with my community in this way - it’s been wonderful!

HHS has given me so much opportunities to do what I love: Work with animals and help them get better. I started as a dog walker, but when I heard volunteers are allowed/needed in the wellness clinic I didn't hesitate a second and signed up for the next orientation.
This is helping me getting closer to my dream: becoming a doctor of veterinary medicine.
Everyone is so friendly and supportive and everyone seems to get along. Nobody gets upset, when I am asking a ton of questions, they appreciate it and take the time and patience to explain things. An awesome working climate all around! Wish I had more time to volunteer here!

I take care of stray cats and kittens, I've had a few cats taken cared of by the HHS and their service is outstanding! Very clear on procedures and expectations. Through their community events such as food pantry or free spay/neuter services, I've received the best help not only to have some weight lifted off of my shoulders but they help out the community by decreasing the number of homeless cats/giving them required shots. Every service I've received has been very organized and well-managed!

Houston Human Society is a well run heartfelt non profit business. The people who work there are very passionate in what they do. Always ready to help with any questions you have when we handled dog walking. My husband and I volunteered on Saturdays for a couple hours and enjoyed walking the dogs together. There are so many rescued dogs and cats and they are treated in the most humane and respectful way; so thankful that such a great facility exists!
We travel too much in our jobs and cannot have a pet of our own so it gave us a great feeling of giving back, volunteering to walk the dogs and visit the cats. It was so fun "showing off" all the wonderful pets for future pet owners to observe and see if the pet would be a good fit for them or their family!
The most rewarding part is when a pet is requested to see, sometimes as you are walking the pet, and that same pet got adopted when we were there!!! Such a wonderful experience the joy and love their new pet had on the new owner or family to be!
Also, it was very rewarding when walking the dogs they could relieve themselves outside rather than in their cage (pooper scoopers are a great invention!). Altho, they sure keep up with cleaning the cages meticulously.
The grounds are really lovely. As you walk you can see other wildlife around. Also, there are many quaint areas where you can sit on a bench under a tree so you can take time to visit, play and chill out with your pet and give cuddles.

We adopted our beautiful Sandie when she was 6-1/2 years old. Since she was an older dog, she was calm but playful, housebroken and leash trained. We have had her over four years, and she is a wonderful addition to our family.

The process to adopt her was very easy. We saw her picture online, went to the shelter, met with her privately off leash in a fenced in area, and immediately fell in love. Because it was late on a Saturday, we came back on Monday to formalize the adoption and bring her home.

She has been in perfect health since adoption, and has been the most wonderful, loving, and playful dog we have ever owned. In fact, she has become a therapy dog of sorts for my husband, who is unable to work due to health issues.

We were impressed with the cleanliness of the facility, the helpfulness of the staff, and how quick they were to help us with every part of the adoption process. I can't say enough wonderful things about the Houston Humane Society.

When it is time to adopt another dog, we will be once again returning to the Houston Humane Society.

My daughters and I have been volunteering at the HHS since 2012. The dedicated staff and volunteers are amazing. I have seen so many animals adopted and taken care of. Also the outreach HHS provides to our community such as pet pantrys, educational awareness, therapy, mobile adoptions, involvement in community events, and most importantly rescuing animals in danger is priceless. My experience with HHS is so rewarding and humbling

If you care about your pet at all DO NOT take them to the Houston Humane Society. My roommate took her perfectly healthy kitten there for a routine neuter procedure, the whole staff neglected to give him a physical assessment before they had him on the operating table. After they realized he had a retained testicle (very commonly seen in cats) the surgeon did not call to update the owner of his condition and proceeded to botch a surgery she admitted to never doing before. This is the definition of medical NEGLIGENCE and MALPRACTICE. The doctor proceeded to hide this information in the charts when we asked for the paperwork to take to another vet. She still has not called to explain her actions to my roommate instead letting a different doctor explain what happened in the operating room days later. This kitten is now suffering from major infection do you a “mess up” the main surgeon admitted to making. She cut a nerve in his anus and now he is in an animal hospital with a extremely low likely hood of survival. I WILL be reporting this to the Veterinary licensing board and will make it my personal mission to see that this doctor is NEVER allowed to operate on another animal again.

My name is Noel Russ. I wanted to take the time to share my own personal story with Houston Humane society. I currently have 4 amazing dogs from HHS. All were huskies that HHS had at diff times.each time I drove 3 to 3 1/2 hours to adopt and then again to pick them up! It got to the point where HHS would call me and tell me they had a husky that needed rescued. I now have 8 amazing huskies all rescues from shelters around Texas and they are the best pack I could ask for. HHS helped me find a family the 4 legged kind when I needed it the most. Here are a few pictures of them and there new names !

My pet had two small masses that per his primary doctor resembled cancerous cells. They wanted a large amount of money. I reached out to Houston Humane and got to see a doctor with in a week. I felt skeptical. I have a big dog who is fearful which makes him look aggressive or act aggressive. But to make long story short Houston Humane blew me away. He even got a nail trim which we didn't talk about but was grateful for. They did the removal half the price my primary vet asked for and was treated well. I walked out very impressed. I saw some really committed people. My pet was not just another dog. Thank you Houston Humane Society

the story of Mimi, aka MIa, so i run a small private no-kill sanctuary in texas, and i just so happen to have lost a few dogs due to age and health issues. :( incredibly heartbreaking, oh yes, and just because i run a sanctuary, NO! it does not ever get easy when you lose one! each baby comes with their own story, and brings something special to the table.

so, i took a peek on the houston humane society. you will laugh when you see how i do this. it kills me to see any dog needing a momma and daddy. so i placed my finger over the picture area, and just scrolled for small dog, and the oldest one there. within a minute, THERE SHE WAS! yes, that was my new baby! a 14 year old chihuahua they were calling Mimi. she was my baby i just knew it.

so the next morning i made the journey down to the HHS, and stood in line for my turn. when i got to the help desk i didnt ask, "may i see dog number ?, or may i see Mimi, instead i said, "i am here to take Mimi home." the lady, sweet as can be smiled big, and said Mimi? very surprised was she. you see Mimi was old, and it turrned out that not even one person had even inquired about her. as much as that hurt my heart, I KNEW it was meant to be, so secretly i was glad. :) she was meant to be my baby! i did ask, why was she surrendered as i could not ever figure out why???someone would take an old animal to a humane society? how could this ever happen to her? to be in a home for your whole life, and then end up in a lonely, cage? it is painful to think about.

so they put mein a meet and great room, and within a minute or two they brought her in. OMG, love at first sight. i scooped her up, and she just melted into me. i think she flet what i felt, ohhh, yes, this is my mommie. i didnt need to sit and think about it, as i wrote i came there to take her home. and for the record, her being old, scared, and abandoned (sort of) by her family-she was not snappy or hard headed in any way. and to be honest i would not have blamed her if she had taken a while to warm up. BUT she didnt. she just knew she was safe!

so before we checked out, i stopped in their little store, and bought her a new blingy collar, and some new sweaters as it was winter time. also bought her a new super cushy bed, and a few stuffed toys-all for her. we paid our fee, and off we went.

i did rename her Mia, making sure she liked it first. and making sure she responded to it without an issue, well, she loved her name, and her home. i swear to you, she fit right in. i introduced her to the other "little squirt" group, and she said howdy, and gave and got tons of kisses. made my heart just melt seeing her here, in a home, that no matter what she was safe. PLEASE everyone with pets, Mia was given her old family claimed because they moved? OMG, so bad. when you move, your pet moves with you. also you must have a PLAN B, maybe even a PLAN c. where you have people who will, no matter what take all of your animals, fish, turtle, dogs cats, and even livestock, should anything happen to you. nobody knows what tomorrow will bring, and you must have that plan in place for your animals! i even have a ton of life insurance since i have a rescue so should i die my bestie (according to my will) will inherit the money, and agree to care for every single animal on the property until they go to heaven too. i am 100% sure this will happen. it is the responsible thing to do.PLEASE make sure that you have a plan B!.

Mia is still here. still alive and kicking 2+ years later. yes, a 16 year old granny who is still as sweet as sugar, and luckily very healthy. the only issues are her eyes are not as good as they once were. but other than that she is perfect. i did change her to a raw food diet, cuz she is a bit fussy. she loves it, and for a chihuahua it is not a pain to do, and not expensive, plus i see that she eats very well every day. she sleeps at my feet everynight, and puts up with the fact that i am a restless sleeper. in exchange she does occassionally make an accidental pee pee on the floor-so it all evens out. LOL according to her i think. :) no worries i may end up wearing adult diapers someday myself. i also make it a point to pick her up and put her outside for potty often just as a reminder. no worries again people remember this issue happens to humans too. so in my mothers' words, "dont sweat the small stuff."

Mia is a joy, and just like i knew from moment A, she was meant to be my baby girl. i love you to the moon and back Mia. xoxoxo

We needed to spay our puppy and after evaluating other providers we chose the Houston Humane Society. I was impressed with their friendly customer service from the first time I visited the facility dropping food donation. The facilities are very well maintained. They are very clean, well organized, and make it an excellent place for caring for dogs and cats. Our puppy was registered for spaying surgery, the procedure went well, and at a very competitive cost. Communication prior to the procedure was timely and detailed. I strongly recommend the Houston Humane Society for adoption and caring for dogs and cats. Excellent staff.

I’ve been associated with the Houston Humane Society for over 10 years.
The most Important part of my volunteering is fostering. With the help of the HHS, I have saved several dogs from the brink of death, bringing them back to life and making them adoptable for future families. It’s because of the HHS and fosters like myself that make a huge difference for unwanted animals that pass through the HHS doors. Make a difference and foster, you’re truly saving a life.

We originally wanted to help our community by volunteering somehow. We decided to spend time walking dogs at Houston Humane Society (HHS).
We have seen so many severely neglected and sick animals and feel honored to be a part of their lives. We have since sponsored the heartworm treatment for 8 dogs, and fostered and adopted an HHS dog.
The HHS team organizes wonderful fundraisers and uses their resources to help get these animals a forever home. They are great at what they do and we will continue to volunteer!

I adopted my little Charlie (formerly Lucky) from the Houston Humane Society in August 2019. He was a favorite of one of the volunteers there. I wish I had gotten her contact info or gave her mine, so I could show her how well he's doing. He had heartworms when I adopted him, but he is free of them now. We love him so much and couldn't imagine life without him.
Fun fact: His favorite room in the house is the kitchen, because he knows that's where the yummy treats and food is. He's such a cute little beggar. =)
I was impressed by the facility at the Houston Humane Society. It was very clean and the animals looked well taken care of. The workers/volunteers were very friendly, too.

I have been a customer of The Houston Humane Society wellness clinic for 12+ years. I have taken many of my pets to the Wellness Clinic Almeda location. The people who work here are the most caring and compassionate crew I have come to admire so much. They are top notch in all the do. From the EZ stuff like low cost vaccinations, Spay/Neuters, and flea medicine, to the real hard stuff like many surgeries, some dental, and compassionate euthanasia. These folks do an unbelievable job in caring for our pets. Did I mention that the prices are below regular veterinarian costs! I have many animals and I need all the extra help i can get when it comes to vet clinic costs. The Houston Humane Society has made that possible for us. Highly recommend! A+A+

This year I brought a cat that is part of a colony at a local park to the Fix Felix Free event. He was neutered and got a rabies shot for free! It seemed like hundreds of people were there, some with multiple cats that were dumped strays in their neighborhood.

I volunteer with the cats every weekend and adopted my own sweet kitten from Houston Humane last month! Houston Humane does a great job taking care of the animals, keeping them clean, and they get them their first round of shots and microchipped before you even adopt! All the staff and volunteers are so caring and we all do the best we can with the space we have. With all the hurricanes hitting Louisiana recently Houston Humane has taken in a LOT of animals and they deserve to be recognized for their efforts!

I was unaware of the wonderful facility and work of the Houston Humane Society until August when a friend drove me there to see if I could find a dog to keep me company during the pandemic. My dog Marcy had died the year before, and as a 78-year old isolated at home, life was a challenge. But I found Rosemary, a 6-year old chihuahua, who was initially shy but now is lively and loving and keeping us positive and smiling. What a difference she has made in our life!

We believe in giving second chances!

We love when individuals or families go out and adopt a pet, but it is very important that everyone understands that it is hard work.

That’s how we started, people taking animals home and then deciding they did not want to do the “musts” in caring for them.

Please adopt responsibly!

This is Leo, formerly known as Elvis. We were so blessed to be selected to be hope family 2 years ago. The Humane Society was so professional with the meet and greet but also so concerned and caring for the well being of this beautiful puppy. We came to see him a couple weeks before Christmas and there were several families there to meet him. They said we were the last family who was going to see him and then he needed a break because it was so overwhelming for they’re age to do see all these families. The person supervising over the visit asked several questions during the visit to get a feel for the right home for Leo. She asked if we had experience with a puppy and what home life would be like. This was the first time I had been interviewed to be a potential adopter but it was so heart warming to know they cared so much that he would go to a wonderful forever family. We were added to the waiting list and pleaded our case to the employee collecting the application and were told we would be informed in a couple days. When I received the phone call, I was overjoyed to hear that we were selected as Leo’s new family! We were so excited and 2 years later we still feel so lucky and blessed to have him in our family. We still go to the Humane Society to get his vaccinations and visit the store for any fun toys or supplies they may have to give back however we can. We are so thankful for him and the Humane Society of Houston who gave him a good home until he found his forever home with us.

We went to HHS to look for a cat - but knew we don't want 'just a cat's but the perfect one... We had the best experience by being chosen by a cat that we could pick up the next day, after a final check-out from the vet. It was the weekend, so many people came by and the staff had a lot to do. But they tried their best and we would definitely recommend everyone to go there and look for a pet. You can go there and look for a pet and come back another day, if you don't find the perfect match.
Our cat is with us for 10 weeks now and is definitely a great addition to our family.

We lost our beloved greyhound to bone cancer in June. Little did we expect that most of the shelters and most of the breeders in the Houston area would be shut down because of Covid-19. We were heartbroken for our loss and further heartbroken to have a silent house with no dog. Fortunately, we found that the Houston Humane Society was continuing adoptions in a carefully controlled way. We found Ollie, a 5 year old Chinook mix, who fit into our lives and our hearts immediately. The adoption process was easy, efficient, quick and professional and we are so thankful to have Ollie in our lives.

Our pup Lady and I were so happy with the Houston Humane Society's wellness clinic! I have visited other low-cost clinics in Houston and HHS gave us the best care. The appointment was fast (in and out in 30min!), the staff answered any questions I had, and it truly was low cost. I was also happy to hear they provide additional services like spay/neuter and dentals. Highly recommended for your pet's prevention needs.

The most vulnerable population during COVID pandemic are our pets. People are running on tight budgets and sometimes keeping a pet is just a luxury people can’t afford. Houston Humane Society and generous partners have been holding drive through pet pantries all across town and keeping the low-cost vet clinic open to ease some of that pressure and help people keep their furry friends. Love Houston Humane Society for looking out for our furry babies!!

I have been volunteering here for almost 6 years now. I love Houston Humane Society! I mostly walk dogs, but will also bathe, groom, and socialize dogs who need it. The staff here, from the bottom to the top, are amazing!! I just love coming here EVERY day (M-F) with an occasional Sunday here and there. The best shelter in Houston, in my opinion. I have adopted 6 dogs from here.

I adopted 2 Maltese mixes from the Humane Society in April. Elvis and Skippy. They took really good care of these boys until I could adopt them! I am very thankful they care for the least and unwanted in our community.

I regularly donate to this organization. They regularly take in large numbers of animals from hoarding, neglect and abuse situations. They have wonderful staff who take amazing care of these animals and give them a great chance for a loving home.

We lost our first two adopted siblings after 14 years of loving companionship. We adopted a GS that had a horrible story but was a loving and protective member of the family, but lost him to liver cancer after a year. We then adopted Niceaux (GS) from HHS, and quickly went back and adopted Daisy a year later. They are completely different in personality, and have been fun, loving, playful and sometimes crazy additions to the family. I have had such a good experience with HHS that II now volunteer, and fall in love with new dogs every time I am there!

We adopted our first dog as a married couple a month after our wedding. We’ve had him almost 5 years and it’s been wonderful. He’s been great with out son we had last year as well! The staff was awesome and very helpful.
