Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some pets up for adoption? There are dozens of deserving pets up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Houston.

Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of pets currently available for adoption.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)

Litleo, lionhead rabbit

Litleo is an adorable male lionhead rabbit being kept at CAMO - Rescue.

Litleo has had all his shots.

From Litleo's current caretaker:

Litleo is a 4-month-old, male Lionhead rabbit. He is friendly and doesn't mind being held. He is bonded to his cage mate, Bunneary. They are not litter box trained but use paper bedding in their cage. Rabbits require a large cage or pen, paper bedding (no wood chips) and fresh water. They require daily interaction and time outside their cage in a safe space free of electrical cords and other dangers. They should not be kept in the same room as dogs to limit stress.

Apply to adopt Litleo today at Petfinder.

From Mia's current caretaker:

Mia is a 17-year-old, sweet, doe-eyed mare experienced with great ground manners and round pen training. She thrives under someone that can provide leadership for her to bring out the best in her. Mia is a smart mare that we have ridden in an arena, pasture and even tracked cows with! She requires a home that will work with her regularly and give her a job.

Nebula, quarterhorse

Nebula is a female quarterhorse mix being kept at Houston SPCA.

She has been vaccinated.

Nebula's current caretakers say:

Nebula is a 15-year-old sweet mare that came to us from a situation where she was only a pet and had never truly been handled. She was not yet halter broke but has come around quickly in her training. She still tests her handler and will need someone with some experience in horse training to further her skills.

Rachel, Pony

Rachel is a female Pony mix currently housed at Houston SPCA.

Rachel's current caretakers say:

Rachel is a super cute 2-year-old pony ready for her new family! She is young and has not been trained with tack yet. With a properly-sized rider, she could start her under saddle training or trained to pull a cart!
