The Houston SPCA, founded in 1924, is Houston’s first and largest animal protection organization and shelter. Our mission is to promote commitment to and respect for all animals and free them from suffering, abuse and exploitation. The Houston SPCA is a private, non-profit charity, funded entirely by donations, which receives no funding from the Government, United Way or national animal groups.
We suggest that you first stop at the shelter adoption center. Trained adoption staff and volunteers will help you in making the perfect match. In order to be considered as an adopter: You must be 18 years of age or older; Have identification showing your present address; Have the knowledge and consent of all adults living in your household; Have the adoption fee in either credit card, cash or check (If paying by check, you must have a valid Texas Drivers License. Address on Drivers License must match address on check for check acceptance).
