Empty the Shelters

Houston Humane Society Teams Up with BISSELL Pet Foundation to “Empty the Shelters”

Adult Pets 1 year and over will be available for adoption for a $25 adoption fee from October 1 - 15 during the nation’s largest funded adoption event.
"Our nation’s animal shelters are facing an overcrowding crisis unlike anything we have experienced in more than a decade. The devastating increase in owner surrenders and stray intakes has left tens of thousands of socialized, house-trained, and leash-trained pets desperate to find a home," said Cathy Bissell, Founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. "Our Fall National ‘Empty the Shelters' will support the adoption of thousands of pets across the country, helping shelters in this critical time. Opening your home to a shelter pet saves a life and creates space to give another pet a chance."
