HSPCA kills all Pit Bulls
According to a KPRC news report, the Houston SPCA says it does not adopt out Pit Bulls. This means that all Pit Bulls entering this "shelter" are killed.

Remington, an eighteen month old Miniature Schnauzer at the HSPCA, was scheduled for retrieval by the Mini Schnauzer Rescue of Houston. The next morning, the HSPCA killed him just two hours before a rescue group arrived to get him.
The Houston SPCA labeled Remington "unadoptable" because he was an Owner Surrender and was Heartworm positive. The rescue group was told that he was killed because he was heartworm positive and they needed the space.
The rescue group asks "Why isn't the Houston SPCA a No Kill shelter? Why is there a sign on the wall that states "We do not euthanize because of lack of space"? Good question.
In many cases, the animals do not appear to be in danger; but after the HSPCA does its "raid" the animals die... they die from improper handling or are killed by the HSPCA.
And HSPCA kills all dogs "rescued" in dog fighting raids.
What happened to the other 10,680 that they took in? Killed. That is 51% KILLED by the Houston SPCA.
