Our mission is to promote respect for all animals and free them from suffering, abuse and exploitation.
The Houston SPCA is a high impact organization - providing the most comprehensive array of animal adoption, shelter, rescue, rehabilitation and other programs and services in the gulf coast region.
We provide services for more than 50,000 animals each year, including dogs and cats, horses and farm animals, native wildlife and exotic species.
Our menu of programs and services includes: sheltering; adoptions, cruelty investigations, 24-hour injured animal rescue ambulance; disaster relief, rescue, and recovery efforts resulting from oil spills, hurricanes, and wildfires; shelter medicine and animal welfare partnership with Texas A&M university college of veterinary medicine and biomedical sciences; spay/neuter of all adopted animals; native wildlife rescue; humane education including camps for children ages 8-15; Petsafe (provides free boarding for the pets of family violence victims); and foster care.
Houston SPCA is also the lead nonprofit agency for animal-related disaster rescue, relief and resources in the region. Our reach is wide, as we are called to step in when hurricanes, fires and storms ravage the region and state.
The Houston SPCA is the only animal welfare organization in the United States with the ability to care for all species of animals on one central campus.
The Houston SPCA receives no funding from the government, or other Animal welfare organizations.
