Are you an animal lover, but not in a position to adopt at this time? Have you adopted, but want to do more? Do you want to make a difference?
There are many ways to help!



Our greatest need is always more foster homes.

The more foster homes we have, the more lives we can save. All foster expenses are paid by Houston Cares.


We wouldn't be able to do all the work we do without help from our dedicated volunteers! If you have a few hours a week, you'll feel great about helping these homeless pets until they can find their loving forever homes. There are many areas where we need volunteers, and something for everyone - events, transportation, fundraising, photography/videography, writing, data entry, Trap-Neuter-Return, and more!!!

Supply Wishlist

Animal rescue is an expensive endeavor. While animals are in our care they receive the best medical attention, sound nutrition and a clean, safe environment – all of which require supplies. Please visit our Amazon Wish List or our Chewy Wishlist!
