Special Pals is the only no-kill shelter in Houston that houses and cares for dogs and cats 24 / 7 / 365, and we rely on donations to support the care of our shelter animals.

We provide medical care for all of our shelter animals and we are able to continue operating as a no-kill shelter mostly because of the support of the community.

We receive no funding from any national, state, or local government agencies.

We are a limited intake facility: when we do not have enough resources at the shelter, we cannot accept animals into our program.

The amount of lives we save is determined by the amount of donations we receive… and every little bit helps!
