Dogs bound across the grass chasing myriad toys, tongues hanging to the side. Their human guardian for the day tosses another toy into the air, and the pack of dogs changes direction. This is a regular scene at Lone Star Pet Lodges, where two acres of land provide plenty of space, both indoors and out, for dogs to play. They're supervised by experienced staff members, who have been Outstanding Pet Care Level One certified. Overnight guests bunk down in the suite area, designed to look like a small town in a theme park, complete with fire hydrant and barbershop quartet selling funnel cakes. Cats relax in a separate area, and owners can schedule grooming to keep their dogs clean.

Leash-free dogs frolic as they race and tussle with other canines in Fondren 5 Star Pet Resort's dog park. The fenced, shady yard hosts dogsof all sizes and shapes, so long as they pass a behavioral test, provide proof of up-to-date vaccinations, and can prove they haven't left any hate letters for the mailman. As dogs run about, their owners get to interact with professional dog trainers, who provide tips and advice on how to improve a furry friend's behavior or get a pet to do tricks.
As night falls, staffers move overnight pets into their spacious accommodations, providing dogs with private enclosures, cats with condos, and every animal with a complementary meal of Precise Pet Food. While it's fun to spend time with so many dogs, the resort's owner says her favorite part is watching them leave happy and healthy.

Creating a fun and festive environment that dazzles wide-eyed youngsters, Snip-its takes the stress out of maintaining the locks of jittery tykes. A kid-friendly staff maintains manes while ensuring safety—which is of paramount concern—by providing chairs especially designed for miniature adults. During the cut, melted crayons and various knickknacks are snipped away from tussled noodle nests, leaving hairs as fresh as the day they were born. While the follicular wreckage is brushed off, children can play with a bounty of activities and games. With so much to keep young eyes occupied, the atmosphere almost feels like that inside the house that Ruth built—Disneyland.

Dedicated to eliminating animal cruelty, abuse, and overpopulation, the Houston Humane Society cares for thousands of homeless animals each year. According to the ASPCA, the average cost of food, supplies, medical care, and training for one cat or dog ranges from $700 to $875 annually.
