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.

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!

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.
