To make a difference in the lives of abandoned, unwanted and abused animals by providing funding and support to those organizations dedicated to helping homeless animals in the city of Houston and greater metropolitan area find food, shelter and veterinary treatment, through fundraising efforts.
Houston Petset is a founding partner agency of the harris county animal cruelty taskforce, and currently provides funding for two of the taskforce animal cruelty officers.
