We are a newly formed 501(c)(3) rescue in the Houston area with over 25 years of combined rescue experience. We help all injured, abandoned, and aim to save dogs from being unnecessarily euthanized. While specializing in German Shepherds, we are working towards educating the public on microchipping, spaying/neutering, heartworm treatment and prevention, and many other pet needs. We are working to build partnerships with other rescues and work tirelessly to assist in the overcrowding of shelters while placing these precious animals into loving forever homes.

All of our members are unpaid volunteers, giving their time to help our cause. If you’re interested in assisting us save dogs in the Houston area, we have quite a few different ways to help:

  • Fostering
  • Reference checkers
  • Intake
  • Transport
  • Event planning and coordination

If you have any other questions or ideas, please feel free to drop us a line!

Okay, I really need your help. Please network this little chunk style so we can find her the right home. My precious friend Shari Tisman Mears scooped her up just moments after someone dumped her outside our office on Tuesday (the area is a notorious dumping ground). Shari has a very elderly baby (16 year old shepherd/husky mix) who will not tolerate another dog so she cannot foster or adopt. We are fostering temporarily but are not a good long term solution. She is going to the vet Tuesday for vaccinations and health check. She's morbidly obese and will need a foster who can monitor her eating and help her get regular excersize. Any home all day moms who might have room for her in your heart? She's super sweet and very laid back. Please message, text, call or email me if you think that you can help. Please share as much as you can as well ... See MoreSee Less
