WHY:            Harris County Pets has seen a sharp increase in its animal population since March and now has exceeded its capacity to comfortably house all pets.

“We invite everyone to visit our beautiful new facility and see all the amazing dogs and cats in need of a forever home,” said Michael White, DVM, MS, director of Harris County Veterinary Public Health, which operates HCP. “We are also deeply thankful to our rescue and transport partners, fosters, volunteers and the community for helping us reach our high live release rate. Also, it is important to emphasize that we will not be able to maintain this incredible success without your continued support. If you are unable to adopt one of our pets, please consider fostering a pet, or volunteering at our facility or at our outreach events.”
