Partnering to save the lives of dogs and cats in Houston

Best Friends Network Partners include thousands of shelters, rescue groups and other animal welfare organizations, all of which are committed to saving the lives of homeless pets.

Through collaboration, information sharing and proven lifesaving programs, our partners support each other and inspire their communities to save more lives.

In Houston, members of the Coalition to Save Houston’s Pets are saving the lives of homeless dogs and cats. The coalition is a group of more than 25 animal welfare organizations that work together to narrow the lifesaving gap for homeless pets and strive to make Houston a no-kill city.

Coalition members network, share resources and collaborate to increase lifesaving in the greater Houston area. To become a member, email
