COVID-19 Info for Pet Owners

What Pet Owners Should Know about Coronavirus COVID-19

We want you to be knowledgeable, prepared, and to know the facts when it comes to COVID-19 and your pets.


Houston Humane Society Medical Director Tony Malone provides some answers to questions regarding your pets and the virus.


Spread of Coronavirus from pets 

There is currently little evidence that companion animals, including pets, can spread COVID-19 to people. This is a rapidly evolving situation and information will be updated as soon as it becomes available.


Medical Director Tony Malone suggests until more is known about this virus, if you are ill or have symptoms of COVID-19, do not expose yourselves to your pet or other animals. Follow the orders to stay home and restrict contact with your pet.


Have a Plan for Your Pets

Pet owners should always include pets in their family's emergency preparedness planning and ensure enough food and product to care for pets' needs.

  • Identify a family member or friend who can care for pets
  • Have crates, food and extra supplies on hand
  • Keep all animal vaccines up to date in the event of boarding
  • Ensure all medications are documented with dosages and administering directions. Including the prescription
  • Pets should have identification: collar with ID tag and microchip
How to Stay Healthy Around Your Pet
We recommend washing hands or sanitizing to prevent any disease from spreading, animals need not wear a face mask to be protected from COVID-19.
