Houston Cares Animal Rescue

Houston, TX

Our Mission

Houston Cares Animal Rescue, formerly known as Westbury CARE, is more than just a 501c3 rescue, it’s a community of animal lovers working together to make a difference for animals in Houston. What began as a small group of neighbors in Westbury, a Houston neighborhood, trying to help the animals in their area, quickly grew into a non-profit rescue because the need in Houston is so great. Despite its growth, Houston Cares has aimed to keep its community feel and is built on the idea that it will take a community of Houstonians to make change. It is estimated that there are over a million strays in Houston. We believe change will only happen through a multi prong approach including rescue, education, spay/neuter, and changes to our legislation. We believe that the more the rescue community works together and supports each other, the more the animals benefit and the more change will be seen. We are proud to be a small and growing part of the Houston rescue community. Please join our efforts through fostering, volunteering, adopting, or donating.
