We pull dogs and cats into our program from overcrowded shelters that are often forced to euthanize for space. Last year, we pulled 2,804 dogs and cats into Texas Humane Heroes from 42 shelters in 28 counties.

A We process adoptions in person and cannot do holds until the animal is fully ready for adoption. Holds are also done in person. There is no online application at this time.

AOur adoption process is a first-come, first-served basis.

AWhen Texas Humane Heroes rescue animals they come with little to no notes. Our adoption counselors can better assist you to find the perfect fit for you and your family. We encourage in-person meet and greets, especially with other dogs.

A Whenever Texas Humane Heroes saves animals, they come with little to no notes and we’re not sure what they could be mixed with! The only true way to tell what a dog is or could be mixed with is if the animal is genetically tested. Dogs are complex individuals whose behavior is influenced by many external and internal factors.
