The Harris County Animal Shelter serves the residents and pets of unincorporated Harris County. As the publicly-funded municipal shelter, they are required to accept every animal that comes through their doors regardless of breed, temperament, health conditions or circumstances.
The shelter faces a number of challenges, such as our year-long breeding season that steadily increases the area’s animal population, and our semi-tropical climate which serves as an incubator for fleas, ticks and other parasites harmful to animals.
A division of Harris County Public Health, the shelter provides animal adoption, a pet wellness clinic for the public, zoonotic disease surveillance, as well as animal control services in neighborhoods throughout unincorporated Harris County and with certain municipalities within Harris County.
