Adopt a pet and be a part of the change.

Rescue & Adoption

Our Hospital strives to aid in Houston's staggering problem of unwanted pets and pet overpopulation.

We work with several area rescue groups by helping orphaned, abandoned or abused pets recuperate and become healthy members of a new family.

Adopt, Don’t Shop! – Help Those That Can’t Help Themselves

There are many reasons to adopt a pet instead of shopping for one. First and foremost, you are literally saving a life. When you adopt a pet from a shelter, you’re giving it a happy home while freeing up a spot at that shelter, which makes room for another animal to be rescued.

Additional Reasons to Adopt

You can get a much better feel for a pet's personality when you adopt than you can with a puppy or a kitten. You can find out how they act around children and other pets, how active they are, and what their general temperament is.

Less Expensive

Rescue animals have already gone through all the shots, vaccinations, and spaying/neutering that you have to pay for when you buy a puppy or a kitten. This ends up saving you quite a bit of money.

Lots of Choices

When you adopt, you'll find pets of all ages (hello no potty training!). It is estimated that 30% of dogs in rescues are purebred. So if you're set on a certain breed, do some research and find out about breed-specific rescues here in Houston.

How we use our medical expertise to help with rescue and adoption

Pets brought into our facility by rescue groups will receive the following treatments before becoming available for adoption: Medical treatment as needed, intestinal parasite and heartworm testing, full set of vaccines, spaying or neutering, HomeAgain Microchipping, and general obedience training.

In addition, our staff works with several area rescue groups to help meet their  medical needs.
