Adoption Process
Due to COVID-19 pandemic, our adoption process has changed to ensure your safety and that of our staff.
  • Only 8 people per hour are allowed inside our adoption building
  • A prior confirmed appointment is required
  • Cash is not acceptable, only debit or credit at this time due to sanitary reasons
To make an adoption appointment:
 
Please email adoptions@houstonhumane.org with the following information in the body of your email. You can copy and paste.
 
Information we need from you prior to coming to our facility:
  • Full name
  • Phone Number
  • Address
  • Do you rent or own?
  • Do you currently have pets? If yes, please list them with breed, age and if spayed or neutered
  • If you have pets, please provide your veterinarians clinic name and contact information
 
Once your email is sent, you will hear from one of our adoptions coordinators to confirm your appointment.
 
If you prefer to provide this information over the phone by speaking to one of our adoption coordinators please call 713-433-6421 and someone will gladly assist you.
 
Once at our adoptions facility
 
Due to COVID-19 we are requiring every individual that would like to enter our facility to wear a mask or any mouth/nose covering.
 
Please check in at the front desk, respecting the social distancing measures. You will be asked to fill-out our Adoption Form.
 
Once at the lobby, cats and kittens will be located to your right, and puppies and small dogs to your left. Straight back through the double doors you will find 5 kennel buildings we call “cabanas”, each with a different color, and full of dogs of all ages and sizes waiting to meet you! If you would like to see a dog located in a cabana, please communicate the color and animal ID of the dog to one of our adoption coordinators.
 
*** Currently there is a limit of 3 Meet & Greets per person.
covid19adoptions
When you’ve found the one or two…
  • You will be required to “Meet & Greet” with the animal
  • Once you have decided on your newest family member, please go back to the lobby and speak with an adoption counselor to finalize the adoption process
Please note that some dogs and cats are ready to go home right away, however, others may need a visit to our Animal Wellness Clinic before they go. If your chosen pet needs to see our vet, know that our clinic and adoption personnel will make sure your new dog or cat gets the care they need in a timely and efficient manner.
 
Equine and Other Barn animals available
Occasionally, the Houston Humane Society has equine and other barn animals available for adoption. These animals are not housed at our adoption building, so you must have a prior appointment to view them.  The HHS primarily takes in livestock as a result of animal cruelty investigations.  Most lacked proper care and nutrition and were severely malnourished when they arrived. Once adopted these animals will need time and patience to slowly get back in shape and comfortable in their new environment.  To view our equine and barn animals, please fill out this application and email it to adoptions@houstonhumane.org or fax it to 713-433-4325. 
 
When you adopt from HHS you are:
  • Opening up your home to a homeless pet that is ready to give a lifetime of unconditional love and affection!
  • Helping counter the pet overpopulation crisis in Houston that leaves millions of animals without homes and proper care each year.
  • Helping to support the thousands of animals cared for by HHS each year.
  • Choosing NOT to support the cruel and inhumane practices of puppy mills and other breeders whose first consideration is money, not the well-being of the animals they continue to help overpopulate.
  • Getting the best value for your new best friend which includes the following:
    • General Health Exam - eyes, ears, nose, throat, lungs, abdomen, skin, coat, body condition, and temperament.
    • Spay/Neuter Surgery - all animals are altered BEFORE leaving the HHS.  Isoflourane gas, injectible anesthesia, and separate sterile packs, dissolvable sutures, and antibiotic injections aregivin/used for each animal.  During preparation, surgery, and recovery, pets are constantly observed with heart/pulse monitors.  Hydro-thermal heating pads are used to keep temperature regulated.
    • Tattoo - all animals altered by HHS receive a tattoo signifying the animal has been sterilized, hereby preventing unnecessary future surgery.  Tattooed animals are generally held longer at shelters and animal controls and are more often put up for adoption.
    • Food and Housing - many animals have been cared for at HHS for 3 weeks or more.
    • Grooming - ears are cleaned and nails are trimmed
    • Cats and Kittens are Vaccinated Against - Rhinotracheitis, Callici, Panleukapenia, Chlamydia, Psittaci.
    • Dogs and Puppies are Vaccinated Against - Parvovirus, Distemper, Adenovirus type 2, infectuous canine hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Leptospira canicola, icterhaemorrhagiae infections, and Canine Influenza.
    • Tests - all felines are administered a feline leukemia test and all canines are administered an occult heartworm test.
    • Rabies Vaccination - in compliance with state law, all pets 3 months and older are given mandatory rabies vaccinations.  A numbered rabies tag is given to each pet.
    • Deworming - all dogs are dewormed with Strongid T, Panacur, or Ivomectin; all cats are dewormed with Strongid T.
    • Pet Adoption Kit - Includes 1 month of pet insurance, pet samples, and more.
*** The above is valued at over $450.00, however, you are just paying the HHS adoption fee
