We thank you for taking care of your pet

Adoption and Foster 
Now more than ever, we need your help to adopt and foster. As we continue to receive more animals in our shelters, with limited staff, we are in urgent need of space to help these animals.
We have changed our adoption process to the following:
New Adoption Process
  • By appointment only. Please call 713-433-6421 or submit the adoption application via email adoptions@houstonhumane.org
  • Download adoption application ­here
  • 10 people are allowed in our adoption building at a time
  • Cash is not accepted during this time, only credit or debit card payment is allowed due to sanitary reasons.  
We hope you decide to add a furry family member to bring you and your family happiness and reduce your anxiety during these stressful times!
As more of us find extra time spent at home, this is a great time to provide a helpless animal with a temporary home. 
This will help alleviate the need of persons at our facility. If interested, please contact cgarcia@houstonhumane.org


Our shelter animals still need our help; we want to continue to fulfill their needs and keep our volunteers safe.   
We are Limiting the Volunteers to Serve at This Time 
  • Volunteer shifts are to be scheduled only
  • Schedule a shift via email scurtis@houstonhumane.org
  • WALK-IN VOLUNTEERS will not be accepted
  • Each volunteer is asked to follow the social distancing rule of 6 feet apart
