We are deeply committed to the health and well being of every pet, not just the pets in our care. That is why we work with local shelters to help lost and abandoned animals in our community find new homes.
It isn't just our hospital. The entire family of VCA Animal Hospitals works with shelters and humane societies across the United States to promote successful pet adoptions.
Part of that work is helping you prepare for adopting a pet, because we believe that an informed owner is more likely to adopt the right pet and less likely to return the animal to the shelter. Please feel free to call or visit us for educational information and medical resources that will help you understand the ups and downs of pet adoption.
When you're ready to adopt, please consider adopting an animal from one of the shelters listed below. Together we can make sure your adopted pet has a long, healthy, and happy life.
The Houston SPCA, founded in 1924, is Houston's first and largest animal protection organization and shelter. The HSPCA is a private, non-profit charity, funded primarily by donations.
Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of Houston
We are a 501c3 charitable organization made up entirely of volunteers and sponsored entiredly by adoption fees and donations. Within the organization’s scope and reach, MSRH is dedicated to rescuing every abandoned or lost Miniature Schnauzer that we can and migrating them to a loving forever home. In the interim period, between rescue and adoption, our all-volunteer team provides temporary homes, in a safe and loving environment, while we search for an adoptive home that is the right match for each Schnauzer. We never forget that most adopters see only a snapshot of our overall organization. As such, we strive to ensure a perfect experience to give that snapshot exceptional clarity. Every perfect adoption experience requires a network of committed volunteers, veterinarians, partners, loving adoptive families and friends who pay the love forward with gifts of time, talent and treasure. We want every Schnauzer to have a home. At MSRH, we make it happen….one adoption at a time!
Tender Loving Crested Rescue
