    Houston
    animal
    crisis

    In Houston, we have a lot of things to be proud of as a city. But the way we deal with homeless animals isn’t one of them.

    Roaming, homeless dogs — and dogs dumped by their owners — are an all-too-common sight. 

    Besides all the animals we see on the streets, thousands more are being euthanized. Other cities have found ways to curb the heartbreaking problem of animal overpopulation.

    And Houston can, too.

    That's why we created ADORE (All Dogs Official Rescue Enterprise) Houston. We believe that reducing animal overpopulation is a vital way to make our community a safer and kinder place for both animals and humans.

    At ADORE, we work to get stray and abandoned dogs off the streets and out of shelters — and to help dogs who do have homes stay in those homes by aiding and educating their owners.

    ADORE provides rescue services, vet care, foster care and adoptive placement. Dogs come to us from many sources, including local animal shelters, owner surrenders and the streets of Houston. Our goal is to find safe and loving homes for each and every one.

    One of the ways we help dogs is by helping their humans. When dog owners are in need, we lend a hand so that they can keep their beloved pets and get back on their feet. ADORE Houston is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt animal welfare organization
