Don't go here if you're poor!

Needed to get 3 dogs heartworm tested and get month's supply. Do not have computer so called main number. No way to get to clinic to ask cost. Left message as instructed. No one called back. Took dogs with all current paperwork. Am in wheelchair, so lady at desk took my papers and put info on green sheets. Put papers out for me to initial and sign. Did so. Asked her cost. Wad told $18 each. Great! On Social Security. Car needs wirk. Said ok. Waited at least 2 hours outside. When we finally got too hot, wr went in. Immediately did tests. All negative. Gave me meds. Said would not apply the liquid meds for me.. Nearly fainted when presented with $170 bill. Ssif office visit $20 per dog, $18 per dog for test, about $50 for meds. Do not have computer. Tried to call many times with no success, asked cost. For $20 each. could have at least put mefs between shoulder blades! Came here only because have little money. Knew they would sell meds month at a time. My vet charges less than Humane Society. Couldn't afford 6 months at a time like all other vets charge. What kind of service I received? Tell me why I couldn't get someone in clinic to answer phone while they are open?! $20 to see animal so can charge another $18 to run test??!!!




I would give it 0 stars, but I have to give it something. I brought my 4 healthy inside only male cats in for fix felix day, only for my boys to get sick right after. One got better in a matter of days, two more in a week or two, but one has been sick on and off ever since. I brought him to my vet only to find out that he is now FELV positive and going through kidney failure. He's only 2!!! Thousands of dollars later, he's on his last option before being put to sleep, and I had the rest of my cats tested. 3 of the 4 I brought there are now Leukemia positive, and if it wasn't for their poor sterilization between surgeries, it never would have happened and I would still have my Buddy a healthy and happy cat. NEVER BRING YOUR ANIMALS HERE FOR ANY PROCEDURES!!! I'm not the only one either, i've been speaking to a lot of people who are having the same types of problems, though none as life shortening as mine. I would rather go to BCHS than here, at least parvo is treatable.


I have a dog we adopted in 2007, the place was nice and clean, yes it's hard to keep up with so many dogs however we went back and adopted two cats, they are very healthy and beautifull! I recomend this place to everyone, forget the bad manners or anything you've herd check it out for yourself.



I just called this place and w...

I just called this place and was told that is was $25 to turn in a stray that I found. I wish I could keep the her but I already have 3 dogs of my own and a 2 year old human child. I can not afford to keep her and they want me to pay to make sure this puppy has a good chance at finding a furever home. If I have the $25 to turn the pup in I would just keep her myself. Nice guys on trying to help these furbabies.

People - Remember it is about ...

People - Remember it is about the animals needing a loving home. Not an overworked employee who isnt as pleasant as we would like for them to be. DONT MAKE THESE ANIMALS SUFFER MORE OR PUT AN END TO THEIR LIVES WITH A DEATH SENTENCE because you didnt like an employees behavior. Keep in mind the larger goal - GIVE THESE DESERVING ANIMALS A SECOND CHANCE AND ADOPT TODAY!





I just turned in 6 beautiful k...

I just turned in 6 beautiful kittens, because I already have 8 more kitties in my backyard and I thought that baby cats have more chances for adoption. Denise (the receptionist) was very nice to me and sweet when I was talking while crying because I love all the creatures that step into my yard especially those kitties and will miss them all. I have already get them spayed and neutered with rabbies vaccination before I went there to let them know that I care about those kitties and all are healthy to put into the adoption. If only I can keep them all I will. So pls , TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THIS ORGANIZATION AND TELLING THEM TO NOT TO ADOPT IN THIS PLACE,, WHY YOU HAVE TO TAKE AWAY THE CHANCES OF THE ANIMALS TO HAVE A HOME. Please, those animals inside are innocent. Give them their chance, please.

outstanding non - profit organization & volunteer staff

I understand that the staff is comprised of volunteers from all walks of life and they give selfishly to better the lives of all animals that do not have a voice (or language we can understand). The wheels of progress may turn slower than expected at HHS but keep in mind as a purely volunteer organization they often times wear many shoes at any given time. My recommendation to all those who do not know how to manage their time by claiming excessive adoption stints; break out a pair of blue jeans, sit thru an informative orientation early Saturday morning, set aside your pride in order to learn from young professional trainers & help save the volunteers from malicious verbal assaults as well as working to place all animals in ""forever homes.""
My family has always adpoted from the Houston Humane Society and our experience has always been comfortable & enjoyable.
Look inside yourself before casting the first stone, course if you live in a ""glass house...."" but since you don't, personal reflection is in order to understand the ""root"" of your frustration - which probably was not with the volunteers. Also, understand, that when you adopt from HHS & you already have a furry family member, it is expected & required that you bring your pet to do a Meet & Greet to make sure the animals are compatible. This is really smart when you think about it. If your intention is the same as the volunteers; making sure the adoption is the right fit, that all animals involved can be friends, then quit thinking only of yourself, quit being selfish...!
It's about the dogs, cats, etc... not you, me or the volunteer staff!

Go for the low-cost exam but research treatment to save $

Go for the low-cost exam but do your research on prescribed treatment to save you money and time.

HHS said my dog needs an invermectin injection ($15 HHS cost; $0.50 Amazon cost including shipping) every two weeks for a ""few months"" (I'm estimating 6 months), and again when my dog gets stressed and his mange returns. They also said he needs a preventic collar ($18 HHS cost; $12.50 Amazon cost including shipping) every two weeks until his mange goes away, then every three months indefinitely. If I paid their costs for the injections and collars, plus a $15 office fee for coming in on a M, T, W, or Th or $25 fee on a F, Sat and Sun, I'm looking at $48-58 per visit.

Buying this stuff online will save me at least:

- $600 on office visit fees, ivermectin injections and preventic collars for my dog's red mange if I go on a M, T, W or Th; $720 if I go on a F, Sat or Sun

- 48 hours for the 4 hours needed per visit to drive to and wait in the stinky and noisy waiting area to see the vet

Special note on ivermectin injections: I read the injections can be given orally using the syringes w/o needles (which you can also buy online). Just squirt the ivermectin into your dog's mouth and follow-up with a snack or food. 250ml of ivermectin for $65 including shipping should last my dog a whole year if he needed it at 0.1ml per 10lb of dog.

I appreciate that HHS is a low-cost clinic. I know lots of vets charge many, many times more what HHS charges. That said, I almost let my dog go because I didn't think I could afford his treatment even at HHS prices. The part I hate most about HHS is that I can't see or talk to the vet because owners aren't allowed inside the treatment area, and HHS said I could not buy this stuff online. I just trusted them but now I know better not to. Three stars because I'm glad HHS exists and the people are always polite but I almost had my dog euthanized if I had not done my own research.

This is not a bash the Humane Society but this a bash to this particular place. Melissa the so called manager was very rude and disrespectful and she needs to learn how to be a people person and have good customer service etiquette! Any one seeking or considering adopting a pet I would strongly not recommend this place! The employees had better customer service then she did and she was the one in charge therefore, she is letting her employee's know that it is okay to treat and talk to anybody however she or they see fit! Melissa is a major "B" and the place that she is managing is dirty and I wouldnt run the risk of adopting a pet from here because most of the dogs look sickly and then they try to give you a hard time in adopting an pet! I thought the purpose of adopting a pet was to find it a better home and get out of the living conditions that they were in..... But I dont think that is the case at this Humane Society! Melissa you need to go back to customer service etiquette 101 because your nasty and rude attitude will keep people from wanting to even come to that Humane Society - which happens to be the Audrey Roberts Houston Humane Society on Almeda Genoa Road! All adopter's BEWARE!!!

Horrible Service, Don't lose your time going to this place!

If I could I would give Houston Humane Society a 0, but since I can't I give it a 1. The process is lengthy at over 20 minutes just to fill in an application which is 10 pages long. We went today to adopt a dog and the staff was rude, you even feel like you are being yelled at like you are in Elementary School. They ask for too many requisites and you even need to bring in vet records for any pets you owned during the last 5 years. What kind of crap is that. Don't lose your time and money on this place; if they are not even polite with people, just imagine how they could treat the animals. Go to another place to adopt animals such as BARC.




i love helping animals in need, but i must say this place is being run by the most inhumane people, as far as some woman name Ferguson, and some guy named Edward, this people are not people friendly, if they are animal friendly only God knows. I have gone there to drop of donations as i had been for quiet few years, went there and found my self being mistreated by this individual Edward Perez, the way he treated me and my kids was the most inhumane way, {HIS WORDS WERE, take your donations some where else,and the door was slammed on our face LITERALLY} and this happened after me asking a question about the fee they were asking for to drop of an animal, the name does not fit this location, {{INHUMANE SOCIETY}} this is how it should be called, will NEVER donate there again. and will think twice about dropping of an animal there, only God knows how animals are really being treated behind close doors, im speaking for my experience.

Sad to say but Humane society is not really holding up to the name, they need to have PEOPLE friendly workers, that are mature and know how to treat others, and that are professionals in the field of running a shlter. will donate to other shelters but sadly this place left me and my family with a bad taste in our mouth. and sadly this placed discouraged my kids to want to help shelters. this shelter will have to re-hire new staff including those in charge in order for this place to be trusted.



HHS is tops in my book

Even with all the animals the HHS takes in, the staff is caring and considerate. I was in line waiting to drop off a donation and heard the stories given by 4-5 people dropping off animals. Basically they had let their animals have offspring and didn't want to mess with getting rid of them, so they brought to the shelter. Staff did their best dealing with these uncaring people that treat animals like disposables. HHS, thanks for being there.

Wouldn't adopt here, very frustrating

My husband and I went to the Humane Society on a Sunday to look for a dog. We had never been before, but decided to make the 45 minute drive after researching online the dogs we thought we would like, their hours on Sunday, what the cost would be to adopt, etc. You walk in and can look at small dogs through multiple glass rooms that surround a central room. The problem with this is you can only see the dog’s bottoms when something is going on in the central room and that is drawing their attention. So we saw 2-3 that we thought we might like, but since you really couldn’t see them well it was hard to narrow it down from there. You are not allowed to go into the central room (and various other areas of the complex) without filling out an adoption application a posted sign says. So we proceed to the info desk were there are 3 staff members – 1 on the phone, 1 playing with a camera, and 1 with her back to us. We notice a sign in sheet and sign in – note at this point no one has even acknowledged we were there. We stand there a few more moments and the lady with her back to us finally turns around and asks what we need – note also this is after a few minutes that the lady on the phone staring right at us and the guy playing with the camera haven’t even said “we will be with you in a moment.” We explain to the lady that we would like to view dogs in the area near the reception desk. She tells us we need to fill out an application form on a computer they have set up. We proceed to do so – note the computer system is not user friendly and is rather lengthy (15-20 mins to fill out). After filling this out we go to the front desk again per the instructions and are ignored for another few minutes. When finally the red/blond haired woman (or should I say pink/blonde) asks us what we need – note we were just up their 15 mins ago and this was not a busy morning. She finally pulls up our application and says that we are not approved because it is Sunday and she cannot contact our vet and we do not have our vet records for our other pet. NOTE: NO WHERE ON THEIR WEBSITE DOES IT SAY THEY HAVE TO BE ABLE TO CONTACT YOUR VET, GROOMER, ETC. AND THAT YOU MUST BRING VET RECORDS TO BE APPROVED TO EVEN MEET THE DOGS. After being completely frustrated that one it did not state this clearly on their website the other requirements, being ignored repeatedly by the front desk staff, told to fill out an application without being told of the other requirements to being approved which was a waste of 15-20 mins since I would have known they couldn’t get this info from me/vet/groomer during that visit, that if we wanted to proceed with an adoption here this would mean more 45 minute drives out to their location. The Humane Society has a complete lack of customer service or even courtesy from their staff. They do not want to make the process of adopting a pet an enjoyable experience in the least bit since you feel like you have to jump through hoops to be even graced with the presence of meeting an animal. I understand their rules are to keep their animals healthy and I commend them for that, but they should outline their process better online and the staff should explain it in detail to you when you arrive. Frankly I will never consider adopting an animal from the Humane Society or donating to any of their causes after this frustrating visit. I would suggest the Houston SPCA for anyone looking for a pet.

Low Cost Animal Clinic-1 of the Best in Houston, TX

Wow. Exceptional. They are growing too; modernizing. Very fast in getting in and out. No appointments are needed but best to have one. I donate a dollar each time I go to help the homeless pets. Staff is nice and informational. Prices are affordable, way cheaper than your local pet store or veterinarian. Although in an emergency, it is best to take your animal to a veterinary hospital since they can get very busy! I recommend wholeheartedly. Your pet is under great care here! Oh, it is very easy in getting here too. Just off the Beltway 8 and 288 S.
