HOUSTON (KIAH) – Harris County Pets Resource Center has almost 300 animals over its capacity, currently standing at 758 animals. Up to 40% of animals that are brought to the shelter are surrendered by owners for various reasons and they need a new home.
Currently, all adoptable animals at the HPC are free of charge to a loving home! All of them come spayed or neutered, receive age-appropriate vaccinations (including rabies), microchipped, and receive a one-year pet license.

- Avoiding impulsive decisions when selecting a family pet.
- Owning only the number of pets that you can provide for appropriately.
- Ensuring that the pet is properly vaccinated, identified and registration is up to date.
