Lost Animals
Call the shelter at 936-295-4666 and report that your pet is missing. We want to see you reunited as soon as possible, so please don’t wait. After 5 days in the shelter, pets become the property of the Rita B. Huff Humane Society and will be available for adoption.

Come down to the shelter often and visit this website often. Bring pictures if you have them. Please visit often as your pet could be brought in at any time. We are located at 530 Bearkat Blvd, Huntsville, Texas, you can get directions here. In order to claim your pet, you must come to the shelter with proof of ownership.

We try to keep the website as current as possible but your pet may not be listed yet.


Flyers in your neighborhood can be very helpful. You may also consider posting them at PetSmart and local businesses in your neighborhood. Please notify us when your pet is found. It helps us keep our files current and we like to hear good news!


Found Pets
If you are able, try to calm the animal with a safe and secure environment while you contact animal control or the shelter. Please don’t wait as the owner may be searching too. If you have a way to keep the animal at your home, you can file a "Found Pet" with us and have the owner call you directly to pick up the animal. You may also want to consider flyers and putting an ad in local newspapers. Facebook also has a variety of lost and found pages in the Huntsville area. If you find the pet’s owner, please let us know so we can share in the news!

Owner Surrender
Do you need to surrender an animal to us?If there is any way for your pet can remain a member of your family, we would like to help you consider all the options available to you. We recommend that you surrender your pet to a shelter only as your last option.


But if that’s not possible, we do understand that it is a difficult and heartfelt decision to do what is best for your pet. We know that parting ways is extremely difficult for you and your pet. During this emotional time, we want to make this process as easy as we can. We do have limited kennels and space, but we make every effort to help  you, whether it is putting you on our waitlist, or offer other shelters in the area that may be accepting animals.
