Emergency Care

Friends For Life is an adoption and rescue agency and cannot provide onsite clinic services to the public. But we can help you to find the resources you may need to help the animal.

If the emergency occurs during business hours:

Many veterinarians will give a good Samaritan discount for a stray animal. Always be sure to ask. If you need a referral to a veterinarian in your area, call us at 713-863-9835 or email us at  info@friends4life.org

In addition, there are low cost clinics in town that do not require an appointment - you can find a full list here.
