Available Pets

There is someone waiting for you at the Houston SPCA.

We have hundreds of animals who are in need of a loving home, so please check our page often as their availability is shown in real time. In addition to cats, kittens, puppies and dogs, we also have rabbits, guinea pigs and other small pets, as well as horses and farm animals who need a second chance in life.

If you are interested in adopting a horse or a farm animal, please fill out the Equine Adoption Application or Farm Animal Adoption Application and a team member will reach out to set up an appointment to visit our campus. Please note, an appointment is required to visit our adoptable horses and farm animals.

You are always welcome to visit our new campus and just spend some time with our adoptable pets in our spacious get acquainted rooms. They will love you for the time and attention!

We are open for adoptions Monday through Thursday from noon to 7 p.m. and Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. No appointment needed. Masks are required and social distancing encouraged.
What Do I Need To Know?
To Adopt An Animal In our Care:
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Bring current photo identification
  • Have the knowledge and consent of all adults living in your household—we encourage you to bring the entire family!

Golden Paws

The Houston SPCA has animals of all sizes, breeds, colors and ages who need permanent, loving homes, including senior animals who are six years of age and older. We affectionately call them Golden Paws, and often find them to be quite loyal, affectionate, require moderate exercise and are usually settled in their behavior. Remember, age is just a number!
