Adopting from the Houston SPCA is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Adoptions are by appointment only from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week.
Step 1 - Watch this video to help expedite your personal adoption process.
Step 2 – Call (713) 869-7722 to schedule your appointment! There is a $10 appointment fee that can be applied to the cost of the adoption.
The reopening will also come with some new, personal touches for visitors. Every individual or family will be assigned their own experienced Adoption Counselor when they arrive on campus for their appointment. The AC will guide them through the process of meeting and interacting with available pets based on their personal preferences such as puppies and small dogs in the large get-acquainted spaces; small pets like rabbits and guinea pigs in habitats as well as felines in the Kitty Lodge or large dogs in one of several play yards.
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.
See our available animals.
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.
