Houston Pets Alive! saves animals that are at risk of being euthanized at local shelters and impound facilities. This is only possible through the kindness of animal lovers like you who open their hearts and homes to a vulnerable cat, dog, kitten, or puppy. So by fostering, you are LITERALLY saving a life!

A foster home is a home that provides a safe, temporary living situation for a dog or cat in need. Foster families provide basic accommodations, food, water, love, socialization, and attention while HPA! handles ALL of the medical care and additional supplies available. It's just like overnight babysitting a dog or cat while they get ready for their forever home!

Fosters must be able to travel to Houston Pets Alive!'s facility at 2800 Antoine Drive for regular medical care as the foster animal is prepared for adoption. Once medically ready for adoption, cats/kittens will transfer to reside in a partner pet store cattery, and dogs/puppies attend on-site Saturday adoption events as well as private meet and greets (if applicable).

Learn more about fostering with Houston Pets Alive! and apply today to save a life tomorrow at houstonpetsalive.org/foster.

Mission Statement

To save the lives of at risk companion cats and dogs and find them loving homes


We are not an ordinary rescue, the animals in our program have been passed over by other rescue groups and shelter adoption programs. Every day we receive a list of animals who are at risk of euthanasia and acting as a safety net for our municipal shelters, we save the animals who have no other options.

We know that rescuing animals is a community effort and with the help from our volunteers we save as many animals as we can.

We are committed to developing programs alongside our local shelters, working with volunteers from our communities, and we are dedicated to saving the lives that others won’t, and together, we will continue to work to save even more lives.

Here are ways to get involved:

  • VOLUNTEER - From animal care to general office assistance, all departments at HPA! need your help
  • FOSTER - Help us save lives by fostering animals until they find their forever families
  • ADOPT - Provide an adorable animal with the loving home they deserve
  • DONATE - Donate to HPA! to support our mission

Please feel free to contact us at volunteer@houstonpetsalive.org for more information.
