When you adopt from ThisIsHouston, you are helping us continue to save animals from the streets and put them into loving homes. Our adoption counselors cannot wait to help you meet your match!

Adoption Process

To adopt a pet within our group, please fill out an adoption application. Once/if your application is approved, we will make arrangements to set-up a home visit. The home visit will allow us to see the area the pet(s) will be living in, as we will need to make sure it is a safe and clean environment. After the home visit, if the applicant has any current pets, we will conduct a meet and greet to ensure all pets are introduced properly. If all goes well, the pet(s) will go on a “2 week trial” with the applicant. At any moment during this trial, if it is not working out, the pet(s) will return back to us. If the trial DOES go well, we will finalize the adoption with an adoption contract and collect the adoption donation. Please keep in mind, once the adoption is finalized, and if it doesn’t work out with the pet(s) for whatever reason, the pet(s) must return back to us, as it states in our adoption contract.

Adoption Fee

The adoption fee is $350-$450. For out of state adoptions, there is an additional transport fee of $250. Adoption fees are non-refundable.

Adoption Requirements

To adopt with us, you must be over the age of 21. All dogs/cats currently in the household must be spayed and neutered (if older than 6 months old unless there are medical reasons), and they must also be up to date on vaccines. If you have a landlord, their consent and knowledge are required in writing or one of our representatives must speak to them over the phone or in person. We also require that you are able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide medical treatment and proper care of the pet(s) you wish to adopt.
