Our Mission

HSHC is an independent, non-profit, limited admission animal rescue with a No-Kill policy.

We are not affiliated with any other organization or the Humane Society of the United States. The term “humane society” means that we advocate the humane treatment of animals. We work in partnership with Harris County Animal Control and other regional shelters toward achieving a No-Kill community. We do not receive any city, state, or federal funding. The HSHC exists because of the donations and support of our community and the steadfast dedication of our hardworking staff and volunteers.

Adoption Policy

Adoption Guidelines:

 We welcome responsible couples, families and singles.

All adoptions require a personal meeting with the prospective adopter.
We  also faciltate long-distance adoptions. Out-of-town adoptions require a visit with a local agency who will screen on the HSHC's behalf.
All animals are placed with the expectation of being indoors.  We do not adopt to outdoor only homes.
Dogs and cats are placed with the expectation they will become a permanent member of the adopting family and that adjustments to changes in life style will always include the pet.
