Open 7 days a week, Monday through Friday from 11am to 7pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm, Houston’s SPCA makes adopting an animal in need easy. Adoption rates for puppies and adult dogs range from $95 to $195 and cats and kittens can be adopted for between $65 and $95. Each animal comes with an adoption package that includes spaying and neutering, vaccinations, microchipping, deworming, heartworm testing for dogs older than six months, a treat or toy compliments of pet safe, and an adoption gift from Hill’s Science Diet. The SPCA offers special rates for “Golden Paws” pets. These are senior cats and dogs that have found their way to the shelter. These animals receive the same adoption package as other pets adopted from the shelter.
Keep an eye out for the adoption bus. The SPCA mobile adoption bus travels around the Houston area, making adoption accessible to all communities.

Save a Purrfect Cat Rescue is a 501(c)3 no-kill adoption network that is committed to finding kittens and cats a new home. The organization does not have a shelter, rather Save a Purrfect Cat Rescue relies on volunteers and foster homes to care for the kitties until they are adopted. If you are interested in adopting a cat or kitten you must first fill out an adoption application online. Adoption fees are $100, however, adopters may be asked to pay more due to breed. Before adoption, all cats receive a full health screening which includes vaccinations, deworming, ear mite treatment, and other testing. Potential adopters can see the available cats online via the Save a Purrfect Cat Rescue website.
