Harris County Veterinary Public Health (HCVPH) is our leading partner in the effort to stop abuse and neglect of animals and to promote responsible pet ownership.
HCVPH has brought together the major animal stakeholders to work together in one mission — creating a community of responsible pet owners.
HCVPH responds to citizens calls regarding stray animals, investigates dog bites and provides routine animal patrol. The county’s animal shelter offers pet adoptions, and oversees lost and found shelter along with issuing animal licenses.
Citizens for Animal Protection is committed to sheltering, rescuing and placing homeless animals—relieving animal suffering by preventing animal cruelty through humane education.
Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ mission is to promote commitment to and respect for all animals and free them from suffering, abuse and exploitation.
