Unfortunately, this is our new normal. We are having to double, triple and even quadruple dogs in kennels that are meant to house one dog comfortably. The photo of the small dogs actually has 4 dogs in there (they did not come in together) and that’s not the only kennel with 4 dogs. We have pleaded for community support to adopt, or foster and also spay and neuter your pets. Our staff works tirelessly networking our animals and we make it so easy to come adopt or foster. We cannot do this alone. Staff simply cannot effectively keep up with cleaning and care when we are so over capacity. There must be a positive outcome (adoption, foster, rescue or transfer) for these animals very soon. We firmly believe in quality of life and weeks (often months) on end in a crowded, noisy kennel just isn’t what we want for the animals in our care. We currently have 306 dogs in our care. Please consider adopting or fostering. We will find you a dog that is right for you and your family.

To adopt: https://kiosk.qless.com/kiosk/app/home/22052. Or call 281-999-3191.

To foster: email [email protected]. If you rather foster for a rescue group, please reach out to one in your area. They can always use fosters and that will help them take animals from our care.

More information and all of the animals in our care can be found at www.countypets.com.

**this video and photo were taken before cleaning this morning. Having multiple dogs enclosed in their indoor kennel overnight makes a big mess. We can always use volunteers to come help clean each morning.

Looking foR GG. She has an orange nose and a small hook at the end of her tail.
Whats proper protocol when animal control brings you an animal?
My Jack Russell/ Rat Terrier Lucy got out last Friday during the horrible storm. She is still missing. Have you seen her? We live in Crosby, Texas, by the fairgrounds. Lucy weighs about 7 pounds. She is White with a black and brown mask over her eyes and ears. She has a black spot on her back closer to her tail. Please private message me if you see her.
One of my former fosters was traveling through your area on May 1... They were in a rollover accident and Coco ran off from the scene.. missing black female lab mix.. spayed and microchipped
Luca, adopted Feb. 2017. Shout out to all the shelter dogs who are waiting for families. Luca’s safe and sound on her new poolside weatherproof bed. Living the life thanks to our friends at HCAS! Stay safe! ❤️ Trish & Luca
Missing German Shepard by 249 2606 West mount Houston rd has a slash in her ear and one canine tooth is broken has a pink color responds to Scarlett
Can someone please tell me the stat status of BELLA - ID#A552165. Thank you!
I have been told that animal shelters accept old bed pillows to use in dog beds. Would you please confirm if you do or not? I hate that they would just end up in a landfill.
Hello, I am wondering if this article is true; are animals in the shelter euthenized after only three days? If Canelo is still available, I am happy to adopt!
