American dogFree pet adoptions for all veterans!

In Honor of Veteran’s Day, the Houston Humane Society is offering free pet adoptions for all active and former military personnel.  Kicking off Saturday, November 8th (11/08/14), and lasting through Tuesday, November 11th (11/11/14), a free dog or cat adoption will be offered to veterans of all branches of the military.  “It is well known that companion animals reduce stress, relieve anxiety and alleviate depression,” said Monica Schmidt of the Houston Humane Society.  “This is a wonderful opportunity for our organization to match up deserving pets with military veterans.  It is our hope that both the pet and the vet will benefit from this new found companionship.”  To qualify, veterans must have an approved adoption application and show proof of military service.

All adoptions at the Houston Humane Society include spay/neuter surgery, microchip, routine vaccinations, general health exam, rabies vaccine, de-worming, heartworm test in dogs over 6 months and feline leukemia test in cats, and an adoption kit.  To view pets currently up for adoption, visit
