To honor our service men and women this Veterans Day, the Houston Humane Society is offering free pet adoptions on all pets for all active, former, and retired military personnel. November 6-13, a free dog or cat adoption will be offered to veterans of all branches of the military.
“Companion animals can help reduce stress, ease anxiety, and alleviate depression,” said Monica Schmidt of the Houston Humane Society. “It is our hope that both the pet and the vet will benefit from this new found companionship.” To qualify, veterans must have an approved adoption application and show proof of military service.
All adoptions at the Houston Humane Society include spay/neuter surgery, microchip, routine vaccinations, general health exam, rabies vaccine, de-worming, heartworm test in dogs over 6 months and feline leukemia test in cats, and an adoption kit.
