Adopting Saves Lives

With each adoption from Texas Humane Heroes, you save two lives. When your pet goes home with you, it frees up a kennel for another animal from an overcrowded shelter.

Every pet we rescue costs $200 and adoption fees only offset some of our animal care expenses. To continue saving lives, we rely on donations from our community. Please consider making a donation to Texas Humane Heroes. Our budget is the only thing limiting the number of pets we can save. Your love and generosity will fix that problem.

Adoption Information

Here at Texas Humane Heroes, every effort is made to place animals in loving homes with responsible pet owners who are willing to make a lifelong commitment to the animal. Our adoption counselors find the best match between pets and people. Potential pet owners are counseled about the responsibilities of pet ownership before adoption, and they’re provided with helpful resources to prepare the new family member for their home.
