Local Transport Volunteers Needed to Help Animal Rescue Save Dogs and Cats

Houston Pets Alive! (HPA!) is seeking volunteers willing to transport dogs and cats from the Harris County Animal Shelter to their foster homes. Often times we have people willing to foster the animals but they are not able to get to the shelter in time to pull them due to their work schedule. A transport volunteer would pick the animal up for the foster in order to save its life. Transport volunteers also needed to bring foster animals to the vet or to adoption events as needed when the foster parent is unable.

Houston Pets Alive! is a 501(c)3 animal rescue. We use proven success tactics from other no kill cities, like Austin, to fill in gaps where resources are needed the most. Our focus is on high volume, high quality adoptions, high volume, high quality spay and neuter, political advocacy and community education.

We currently help the pets who are at risk of being put to sleep in a shelter. We focus on animals who have been passed over by other rescue groups and shelters’ adoption programs and have no other option. Therefore, we are complimentary to other rescue efforts.

We look forward to hearing from you!
