Community Cats Program

Harris County Animal Shelter and national animal welfare organization, Best Friends Animal Society launched a joint three year program to save the lives of cats in Harris County.
This is a significant action for Harris County; not only are they implementing a best practice that will help bring our community to the forefront of animal welfare in in Texas, but more importantly, the program will save the lives of thousands of cats each year, and over time, reduce the number of free-roaming cats in the community. Harris County Animal Shelter is profoundly grateful to Judge Emmett and the Harris County Commissioners, as well as Best Friends Animal Society for their generous support of this program.
