From time to time there are animals that come and visit us that need more attention than your everyday companion.
Please contact us at 713 433-6421 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to adopt one of these unique friends.
Also, check out our Project Dogs page to view some of our long term residents.
We currently do not have any Special Needs animals available for adoption.
Special needs dog has found a new home! Sasha is a small dog (shihtzu mix, about 1 1/2 years old) that came to Houston Humane Society in May with severe trauma to her left eye. The eye was so badly injured that our veterinary staff had to remove it. With time, Sasha has fully recovered from surgery, and she's ready to find a new home. With her beautiful coat grown back out after surgery it's hard to tell at first glance that she's missing an eye. Sasha can sometimes be a little nervous when meeting new people (understandably). She does best when you have a little patience and let her get used to you. For that reason I think she would do best in a home with no small kids. She does have roommates and seems to get along okay with other small dogs. Sasha has been adopted.
Macy is a 2 year old Pomeranian mix that loves to snuggle. Due to a birth defect, one of Macy’s front legs did not develop as it should have. Macy doesn’t let her handicap hold her back. She loves to prance and dance, meet new people and give lots of hugs and kisses.
Macy is loving life with her new family!
Bubba found his perfect match!
On September 10, two small dogs were turned in to the Houston Humane Society by a good Samaritan. The man found the two dogs in a dumpster by his job, and they had obviously been on their own for quite some time. The brothers, which we named Heckle & Jeckle, were severely malnourished, matted and dirty, and in pretty rough shape physically. Heckle also suffered from an ulcer in his eye which we treated at our clinic. After months of top notch care at the HHS Animal Wellness Clinic, both boys found a forever family together.
Close up of Heckle’s eye after the first round of treatment and surgery.
Jeckle’s lonely without Heckle, and can’t wait to be reunited after Heckle’s surgery.
Here is a picture of Heckle and Jeckle after being groomed at Pink Paws!
Marshall originally came to HHS as a fairly wild puppy. He was placed in our training program and was adopted after he had been here almost a year. Thirteen months later he was returned as a stray. When called, his former owner said that he had given him away months ago and did not want him back. During Marshall's time on the streets, he picked up heartworms. He also suffered from several seizures. We’re happy to report that Marshall has found his forever home!
