Hurricane Harvey

Shelter List, Tuesday

As the rain continues shelters remain open, even the Houston animal shelter is open to help residents find lost pets.

More rain has fallen on Houston Monday morning. The list of shelters continues to grow for those who require aid.

The Harris County Animal Shelter will be open, Tuesday, August 29, 2017, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. to allow owners to reclaim lost pets that may have entered the shelter on or before Saturday, August 26, 2017. Fortunately, the shelter has not flooded from the Hurricane Harvey's torrential rains and all animals are safe. However, minimal staff are able to get into the shelter safely to offer full services.

The three-day hold requirement for stray animals has been temporarily lifted in response to this disaster in an effort to move animals out of the shelter as soon as possible.

Please note that no additional animals have entered the shelter since Saturday, August 26, 2017. So, if your pet was lost after that day, it is not in the shelter at this time.


If you have a group that needs to be taken to a shelter, you're asked to call: 713-426-9404.
