Miss Moonpie

Update 9/28/11- Miss Moonpie now comes running when she sees me! I would like to think it is me, but I know its the Food. She is putting on weight and is no longer afraid of me. She waits patiently for her food delivery. She will Make someone a Great and loving dog. Please share her!

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 to ask about Moonpie!

Jester! Bull Terrier Mix

ADOPTED! thanks to Friends for Life!

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. Kahlua Shows her Stuff- Adoptable Lab/Pitty

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 to meet and ask about Kahlua. Our goal is to have her adopted by the end of 3o days. She is halfway there!

Kita, Home at Last!

Our Sweet Girl Kita has a loving home and new dad! We sat at the boarding place, and she had on her kisses bandana waiting for new dad to find the place! She has some smiles and even got away from me for a moment and I thought that she was going to keep running, but she stopped on a dime, did an about face, and ran back to the screaming lady that was getting hysterical in the parking lot. Thank you, Kita, for coming back to me! And thanks to Oneil, her new dad, for giving this special girl a great home! Kita is moving on up and there ain't no stopping her now! For those who rescued her (John), vetted her (Barrio Dogs), donated for her boarding (Gary and Carol) found her new dad (Jennifer) and I hope I did not leave anyone out! It truly takes a village these days to save an animal, unfortunately, it only takes one jerk to abandon one. What a great Day!

Luby on her Way to a New Life in Colorado

Luby's story is much like other dogs in Houston and other big cities. For whatever reason, she was left to roam around the streets, scrounging for food in a run-down neighborhood. She was rescued while trying to get into a locked up dumpster behind a Luby's restaurant. She was thin, hungry, afraid, and had been bred many times.

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!
