Who We Are

HOMELESS & ORPHANED PETS ENDEAVOR (HOPE) is an in-home foster, no kill adoption group based in the Houston area.  We are not a shelter.

Our mission is to end the homelessness of cats and dogs through fostering, adoption, feral cat Trap-Neuter-Return, and education.

HOPE covers the cost of general medical expenses for the animals in the program, such as altering, routine vaccinations and treatment for parasites. The foster families are asked to provide food, shelter and love to the animals for which they care. They receive no payment for the services that they provide. Without them, and the other volunteers who so selflessly do what is necessary to keep HOPE afloat, it would not be possible to run this nonprofit organization.

If you have lost or found an animal or need to rehome your pet, please click on one of the links to the right (or below on mobile version) for more information.

We are pleased to announce a new program: The Friedman Seniors’ Animal Program.

I Found a Cat – Now What?

Thank you for caring enough to help this cat. I would highly recommend that you checkhttp://www.lostapet.org under Recovery Tips for information about how to proceed and determine whether the cat is already owned by someone before you decide to place it as a rescue.

I Found a Dog – Now what?

HOPE is an in-home foster group, we do not have a shelter. All the dogs in our adoption program stay in the home (the foster home) of the person that rescued them while they go through the adoption program. Sadly, we rarely have a foster home who is looking for a dog to foster as there is an endless array of dogs in need.
