Most Petsmart and Petco stores have pet adoptions, but these are the local shelters with brick and mortar facilities. They are not all open for adoptions, some are catch and kill. Please call first before visiting. If you live in one of the communities where your shelter is catch and kill, please write your local politicians to let them know that this is not how you want your tax dollars spent.

Finding a Lost Pet
Did you know that in the State of Texas, you lose the ownership of your animal if you do not claim it within 72 hours? Do not wait around to look for a missing pet. Micro-chipping your pet increases your chances of getting your pet back by over 40%! Most shelters scan animals at intake. Make sure you call your micro-chip company if your pet is chipped to alert them the pet is lost.
When you search websites for a lost pet, keep the search very generic. Do not refine searches by breed. Many shelter staff put the wrong breed and even color into the databases.
Internet searching is helpful, but it does not replace physically going to the shelters and looking for your pet yourself. Do not call and take the person's word that your pet is not there. Again, many times the shelter staff has no clue about breeds and colors.
Here are some of the places people can go to find lost pets:
