He needs the whole "Backstreet Treatment" which includes vetting, neutering, treatment for parasites, fleas, and rehoming. perhaps he will need some socialization. We have not been able to get too close to him yet. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to meet or help HERC.
Poor Garbo was dumped in the "Zone" a couple of days ago. She is sleeping in a drain pipe, and is extremely timid. She is so afraid of people, someone must have been mean to her. She is lovely, but underweight and overbred. We will work on getting her to trust us, and get her any medication she needs for mange or fleas/heartworms. She will eventually need a foster/rescue/
Lady is a beautiful, young female (8-10 mos), found living in a vacant lot, probably dumped by some loser. A neighbor who used to work for an animal shelter was kind enough to feed and water her, but could not afford her vet care. He made an agreement to foster her through the end of her mange treatment, and then we will post her in the meantime for rescue or adoption. Lady is very sweet and smart, but we worry because she runs in the street a little too freely. Please contact us at emily.crossley@backstreetr

Peter Pan was spotted outside of a man's yard in the Minnetex area of Houston, TX. He looked to have been shoved out, because there were two others inside the yard that looked just like him. The main claimed he wanted Peter, but then reneged on the promise to keep and care for him. So now Peter belongs to Backstreet... Rescue and needs a rescue/foster/forever home. He is darling, about 10-12 lbs, maybe a year old or slightly older, and very sweet. His is probably MinPin& Chi mix. He came to Backstreet with his BFF Tinkerbelle. Contact Emily if you can help Peter at emily.crossley@backstreetrescu

Moonpie Cullen is a Blackmouth Cur Mix who lives in a park on Cullen St in Houston. She has had a recent litter, still seems to have milk, but there are no pups around. So maybe she had the litter and got away. She is thin, but has a gorgeous coat, and is really sweet and lovely. She is still living in the park, but she can be picked up and rescued IF THERE ARE SOME FOLKS INTERESTED, please let me know. Other wise, we will "street treat" her and feed her until a spot opens up in a rescue group. Curs are hunting dogs, so maybe pass on to any Hound groups you know. Thanks!
Contact email@example.com to ask about Moonpie!

Jester is a young male who we picked up from BARC (Houston city Pound). He was HW neg, already neutered, and he had 3 more days to live! He was being euthanized because he had been at the pound too long and they needed more space! Poor Jester had so little time! A group of friends pulled him and he is now in the Friends For Life program. He is a happy, playful dog, about 1 1/2 years old, and gets along great with other dogs and people. Cats, not so much. Click here to see Jester's posting and contact Friends for Life to meet him. He is a sweet, sweet dog.

Ms. Kaluah was dumped at an RV park on Old Chocolate Bayou Road. One of the residents there called someone who let us know, and we could not leave her. She was young, beautiful, and that road is infamously bad for naive doggies. So we went to get her. She was another team effort, in that Canine Compassion posted her for help, Barrio Dogs sponsored her vetting, others donated for her boarding, bada-boom bada-bing, she is ready to adopt! She is very tall and slender, must be a lab or boxer mix. If you look really closely in bright light, she has a brindle pattern under that gorgeous cinammony brown coat. She is cute. She is loving. She is silly. What more could someone want in a 1 year old? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to meet and ask about Kahlua. Our goal is to have her adopted by the end of 3o days. She is halfway there!

After getting a clean bill of health, and boarding for a few weeks to fatten up and recover from spay surgery, Luby jumped on a caravan this morning to Boulder, CO, where she will join a rescue there and be adopted to a loving home, in the cool, clear mountain air of the Colorado Rockies! How I wish I was going with her !
Luby is one of the lucky ones. It is only through the rescue community pulling together and attacking this problem of homeless pets from every angle; spay and neutering, ongoing vet care advocacy and education of pet owners, no kill strategies, and policy change, will this issue ever be licked in a city this size. Don't believe those who say, one fix will take care of all of the issues. It takes many; it takes all of us. And there will be more stories like Luby's, but there will begin to be happy resolutions that end with more Houston dogs being adopted right here, to conscientious, educated, and loving homes. A revoir, Luby! Don't forget to write!

This is "Davis". He is named after a lovable, yet often unlucky character on the HBO series "Treme". Davis is one of the dogs found when a rescuer was driving the N. Main area looking for a different missing dog. He was with another terrier female (Colinda), possibly pregnant, and an injured black dog, Calliope, probably pregnant (3 legs work, one doesn't).
Today, when I went to make a new feeding station, Davis was the only dog there. He is somewhat skittish, but will get within 10 feet of you as long as you don't make any sudden moves. Davis and friends need to be rescued, but in the meantime, they will get fed and watered. I need help from others keeping the feeding station full. Contact me to help out. Then when a rescue has a space open up, we can scoop these babies up and get them real homes. Not the mean, hot streets of Houston. Hang on guys, we are coming!

Yesterday was nuts!! Full moon I guess... A mama dog spotted early last week very largely pregnant was found in 5 foot tall grass with 5 puppies in an entirely different place! Mom was fiercely protective if her babies, but Robin Elliott took 7 hours and rescued all 6 souls. The pups and mom were starving and dehydrated. Robin needs lots if help, and most of all, a rescue to step up and take the family in. She is full and needs a rescue to help! Please contact Robin Elliot at email@example.com, to help. Please pass the word...Networking saves lives! CHIP IN HERE
