Our Mission

We are a non-profit 501(c)3, all volunteer organization serving the greater Houston area.  The Houston area is plagued by an enormous homeless pet population, shelter overcrowding and heartbreakingly high euthanasia rates.  We are dedicated to helping the many homeless and abandoned dogs, and helping them find permanent, loving homes.   

We team directly with other non-profit rescue groups in the Houston area, as well as non-profit, no-kill shelter and foster groups in Massachusetts.  We coordinate and facilitate the relocation of homeless Houston dogs to New England for adoption.  Relocating dogs provides New England families with wonderful, loving pets for adoption, and gives some of Houston’s forgotten dogs another chance at life.  The relocation program also allows dogs who would otherwise be euthanized due to overcrowding at local high-kill shelters to be rescued, fostered briefly, and transported north for adoption. 

Prior to transport all dogs undergo vaccination and veterinary care, and those over six months of age receive temperament testing.  Prior to adoption at our partner sites all dogs are vetted, spayed / neutered and microchipped.
