THIS is how you run an animal non-profit! I found the workers and volunteers very friendly and knowledgeable. They know their cats (which I was looking to adopt) very well and were able to pinpoint the cats that would fit best in my household. I even had questions once I had the cats home and they were very helpful! I feel confident after a horrible experience with another rescue (LMN Feline Rescue). It's nice to know not all cat rescues are adopting out sick cats! I also love that the SPCA has education programs...what a great way to connect with the community!
I have adopted my pets from this group. Good service and great mission. I also donate to them. The shelter is very clean. I am impressed with all they do for the community.
My family adopted our dog from the Houston SPCA three years ago. She is adorable and the best dog ever. She was healthy and the adoption benefits we received were fantastic. We highly recommend the Houston SPCA and now support their efforts through a monthly donation.
My wife and I recently adopted our new friend, Sadie, from the Houston SPCA. She is a 6 yr old chocolate lab, who has brought us nothing but joy. We made several trips to the shelter and visited with numerous dogs. Each time the facility was exceptionally clean and the staff and volunteers were courteous and helpful. On one visit, we got to watch a dog we were interested in, participate in a supervised play group. It was obvious to us that the animals are well cared for. I would highly recommend the Houston SPCA to anyone looking to open their home to an animal in need.
I really love small mammals and was able to adopt "Fluffy" from the Houston SPCA last July. She has been a wonderful addition to our family and the adoption process was really easy to go through. All you do is find the animal you like, interact with them with the help of volunteers or staff, and then if you want to add them to your family you take their information to the front desk. The front desk staff are really nice and help you with the adoption paperwork. Then you can take your new pet home! No waiting!
I have also seen their updates on animals who have been abused and can say that they really do a great job of rehabilitating animals who have been in really tough situations. They always find a really good home for the animals that need it most.
I have volunteered as a foster parent, I've adopted and I'm a donor - all because I'm committed to the mission of this organization and the good people who work there to achieve it. The staff are committed to excellent client service, the kennels are clean, the volunteers are happy and the organization is fiscally responsible with my donations. Their ambulance team has responded so many times when I've called - no matter what time of day or night and their cruelty investigators are always helping people and pets. I highly recommend!
I have occasionally found newborn possum and squirrels that were seemingly abandoned by their mothers. The Houston SPCA wildlife center always takes them in and nurtures them. Houston is fortunate to have such a facility.
