AdoptionsIntro

Pet Adoptions @ CAP

Thousands of pets throughout the Houston area have found permanent, caring homes through CAP’s award winning adoption program. Adoptions are the highest priority at CAP. Our staff members are always willing to work with each individual adopter to make that perfect match at the CAP shelter. The result of these efforts is an adoption rate that is among the highest in the nation!

Pets for Seniors

To enable seniors to acquire a pet and enjoy the many benefits a companion animal provides CAP offers free adoptions of pets over 5 years of age to senior citizens over 60. Please visit our shelter to view and meet the wonderful "senior" animals who are waiting for a second chance at a forever home.

Pet Match

CAP matches prospective pet adopters with shelter animals. Anyone interested in a particular type of dog, cat or other small pet can fill out a Pet Match request card. If and when that type of animal finds refuge in our shelter, our staff and our volunteer Pet Match Coordinator will try to make the purr-fect match! To learn more about the process, read our Pet Matching article in the Pet Care section.

Happy Beginnings

CAP is able to adopt out many animals to happy forever homes. Adoptive families often share their joy below with pictures and stories on our Happy Beginings page. Help us make this possible for all our homeless animals through a donation to CAP today!
