If you live in Houston, dogs for adoption can be found at your local shelters, rescue organizations and in your local newspaper under the section heading “Houston Pet Adoptions.”

Both large and small dog adoption, Houston and beyond, is best done after careful consideration and lots of planning ahead. The first thing that you need to do is to determine which breed of dog you are interested in and do some basic internet research on the breed to make sure that it will be compatible with your family. Only at this point should you consider contacting Houston dog adoption agencies and shelters.

Once you are ready to adopt a dog, Houston offers you many options in finding just the right dog for your family. Your first stop should be to the local county animal shelter. Because county animal control shelters are considered “kill” shelters, it is always a good idea to check with them first. By doing so, you could save the life of a dog!

If you have visited the county animal shelter and have been unable to find the dog you are looking for, then it is time to look in the newspaper and visit other shelters in the area. If you are still unable to find the dog you are looking for, consider rescue organizations which you can find online.
