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!

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!
