About Special Pals Shelter

Special Pals Shelter offers dog and cat adoptions to Pets for Patriots members in the Greater Houston area and will help them find their new best friend. In operation for more than 30 years, the shelter is one of the few “no-kill” shelters in the area.

As part of its commitment to the estimated 1.5 million homeless companion animals in the community, Special Pals Shelter offers low-cost spay/neuter surgery and basic, affordable wellness care for individuals of any income through its onsite veterinary clinic.

Special Pals Shelter welcomes monetary donations, as well as in-kind contributions of various animal, kennel, clinic and office supplies; see their complete wish list for details. For a more hands-on experience, become one of their valued volunteers.
