20221019 HSH dog webThe Humane Society of Harlingen dog kennels are at capacity. HSH is asking the community to help find foster or forever homes for their canine friends. Dogs will be at risk of euthanasia if they cannot make space through adoption or foster.

For a limited time, all adoption fees for dogs are completely donation based, meaning the adopter can choose how much to leave as a donation. All adopted pets will go home up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, on preventatives for fleas/ticks/heartworms, microchipped and either already spayed/neutered, or with an appointment to spay/neuter at no cost to the adoptive family. Anybody interested in adopting a dog should head to the shelter as soon as possible. All adoptions are done on a first come, first serve basis, curbside.

Fostering a pet is always free and incredibly rewarding. HSH will provide foster parents with everything they will need to care for the pet, including food, toys, and other care items. Foster families can customize the length of foster to meet their availability, with foster periods lasting a few hours to a few months.

Adopting or fostering a pet from the shelter makes an immediate lifesaving impact, for the animal going home and for the incoming animals needing that open kennel. Please help keep Harlingen a safe place for pets.
