DESCRIPTION:The PetSafe program allows families to flee from domestic abuse without being forced to abandon their much-loved pets to a violent or life-threatening environment. Through PetSafe, animals are given temporary boarding, veterinary care, vaccinations and spaying/neutering while their families work towards re-establishing a safe, stable life. PetSafe exists through a partnership between the Houston SPCA and local women and family shelters, such as the Houston Area Women’s Center. By partnering with these shelters, we are able to help human and non-human family members escape from violence and possible death. A network of eighteen shelters sends referrals to the Houston SPCA, and once they arrive at our shelter, pets are given quality, loving care by an experienced staff.

INTAKE PROCEDURE:The Houston SPCA accepts referrals from domestic abuse shelters and other human service organizations. We will only accept pets into the program with a referral.


HOURS:Please call the Houston SPCA for more information.
