Who We Are: The Schertz Humane Society (dba Homes For Pets) is a non-profit corporation dedicated to rescue and improving the lives of companion animals in Schertz, and other areas in Texas. We provide foster care and facilitate adoptions of homeless pets, many of which come from area city animal control facilities, and provide community education about responsible pet ownership. The group is comprised solely of foster homes, compassionate volunteers and its activities are financed by membership dues, fundraisers, and donations.
All animals brought into our care are examined by a veterinarian, brought up to date on vaccines, heartworm tested (and treated, if positive) and started on heartworm preventative, spayed or neutered, and treated for any illnesses or parasites, and evaluated for temperament. While in foster care, dogs are housetrained and usually crate trained and may begin to learn basic commands. Cats and kittens are Fel Leuk/Aids tested if over 6 months, and are kept as house cats, so are litter box trained. Many of them live in homes with children, so are accustomed to being handled and are "child friendly". All are raised in a loving environment to prepare them to come home and live with their forever family.
Adoption fees do not usually cover the cost of medical treatment of the animals in our care. We depend on donations and fundraisers to continue our work. The Schertz Humane Society/Homes For Pets would not exist without the commitment of the volunteers who give so much of their time to help our homeless pets. Volunteer opportunities are endless. If you have some time to spare, be it an hour a day to an hour a month, we could use your help. If you'd like to get involved, we'd love to hear from you.
Adopting a friend:Adoption Information * Adoption fees for our dogs are $115, at this time (includes microchip), $75.00 for cats, although the cost of their care is normally much more than that for the average animal we take in, depending on the age and their condition. See our web site www.homesforpets.org for what the fee includes - which is basically anything medical the pet will need while in our care!
We can only save as many dogs and cats as we have foster space. We always need more foster homes. If you can help, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, if you can help in any other way, such as transportation, phone calls, donations, adoption day set up, etc. please let us know.
