A national and international leader in the no-kill movement, North Shore Animal League America is committed to saving and rehabilitating the lives of homeless companion animals and educating the public about the joys and responsibilities of rescue. Founded in 1944, we’re the largest, most comprehensive no-kill rescue and adoption organization in the world, with more than 2,000 shelter partners across the country and around the globe. Headquartered in Port Washington, N.Y., we rescue, nurture, and adopt nearly 18,000 pets annually into responsible, loving homes, plus assist in the adoptions of thousands more through our global partnerships. Over the years, we’ve introduced such lifesaving best practices as mobile adoption, offsite adoption, puppy mill rescue, national low-cost spay/neuter referral, humane relocation, and most recently, the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum, a transformative humane education program based on social-emotional learning and the natural affinity between children and animals. Introduced in 2010, the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum is strengthening the human-animal bond for more than 3,000,000 students across North America, and creating future generations of informed and empathetic adopters.

BARC is dedicated to pet adoption and a live release initiative. In addition to sheltering and providing veterinary care to all animals brought to the shelter, we work diligently to place these animals in new homes. We collaborate and coordinate with our Houston Pet Rescue groups and through social media networks to cast the widest possible adoption net. We also provide intensive neo-natal and adult pet fostering programs, along with hands-on volunteer training classes and continuous workshops. Lost & Found Pets Program at Houston Animal Shelter CAP

The Houston SPCA's life-saving programs and services include: sheltering; adoptions; foster care; lost and found e-bulletin board; spay/neuter of all adopted animals; cruelty investigations; disaster relief, rescue and recovery; humane education; the Critter Camp day camp, educating children ages 8 to 15; Houston's only 24-hour animal rescue ambulance; the PetSafe program, boarding domestic violence victims' pets for free while the individuals are seeking shelter; and pet training classes.

Almost all programs and services offered by the Houston SPCA are free of charge (exceptions: adoptions, pet-training classes and Critter Camp), and we proudly place 100% of our healthy animals into lifelong new homes.

We also have offsite adoptions. Animals that are already spayed/neutered are able to go home the day of the adoption. Otherwise, they are scheduled for surgery the next available weekday and the adopter may pick up their new pet that same afternoon. BARC supplies cardboard enclosures for transporting cats and leashes for adopted dogs.The Houston SPCA is working hard to prevent pet overpopulation. Last year we received more than 16,000 cats, dogs and other animals. Cats and dogs must be spayed or neutered before they leave the shelter.
