Our Mission


Houston PetSet is a 501(c)(3) umbrella organization that provides grants to Houston-area animal non-profits. Our goal is to help those who are “in the trenches” on a daily basis rescuing, spaying, neutering, fostering, adopting and protecting Houston’s homeless, neglected and abused animal population.

How We Do It


Houston PetSet raises funds for other animal causes through our Annual Fierce & Fabulous Soirée held each September. Houston PetSet support nonprofits that do animal rescue, spay and neuter, anti-cruelty campaigns and investigations, animal street feeding, education, animal transport, fostering, and other efforts that provide support and protection to many of Houston’s homeless animals. Applicants must apply for a grant and agree to be interviewed by a member of our Granting Committee. Grants are provided in December at our Annual Gifting Event!




Why We Do This


There are over 100,000 animals euthanized every year in Houston. This is a financial, environmental and social drain on our City. Animal nonprofits work on the front lines daily to avoid this fate for thousands of dogs and cats every year. Houston PetSet has granted more than $1 million to help fund these efforts. We believe that through our fundraising efforts, other animal nonprofits can focus on core competencies that help mitigate suffering.
