Our Mission

To help pets in need through sheltering, adoption, education, spay/neuter, and community outreach.

Adoption Policy

Please complete the adoption application so Rescue Texas may assist you in finding a special, compatible companion to join your family. Please understand that not all families and pets are compatible, and we want to ensure the welfare of the animal by placing pets in the best possible home.

Age and breed; unless a dog is born while in our rescue, age is an estimate only. Breeds are determined purely as best guess!


The adoption fee is considered a minimum donation. This includes heartworm testing if over 6 months, age appropriate vaccines, and microchips for all of our pets. All dogs 6 months or older are spayed/neutered prior to adoption if 6 months or older. Puppies under 6 months will not yet be spay/neutered but a spay/neuter contract will be required and procedures are paid by adopter(s) at the earliest time prior to 6 months unless specifically approved by Rescue Texas to spay/neuter at a later time for health/medical reasons. The microchip will be registered to the rescue until proof of spay/neuter is submitted.

The adoption donations never cover all expenses, so therefore additional tax deductible contributions are welcomed. We save dogs that have suffered serious abuse, neglect or abandonment- most always have medical needs that we have worked through.

If a dog is listed as spayed/neutered, it means it is or shall be.

If you require the dog to be transported, depending on the size of the dog, it will cost $300-$350 in addition to the adoption fee.

Give them some time to adjust to their new surroundings. Contact us with any questions. Please don't expect perfection the first week. Your new pet has been through a could take 3 days to 3 months before they feel truly home.

Meeting a dog: We are excited to have our dogs meet their prospective new families when adopter is near Houston, Tx.

Dogs in our program are in foster homes (private homes of volunteers) and treated like one of our own. We do NOT have a shelter. The advantages of having our rescued dogs in private homes is that we interact with them frequently and have insight into the personalities and likes and dislikes. Our volunteers give freely of their time, money, and affection to save these animals. Please keep in mind that they are ALL volunteers - no one gets paid, and we all have full-time jobs, families, and lives too. Please be patient if we cannot answer you immediately - we do strive to respond to all applications but it's not always possible.

For contact information for one of our “Courtesy Posts”, please see the dog’s listing. The contact information for that dog will be included in their listing. ??Disclaimer: All owner listings and/or courtesy posts for other shelters or rescues are posted per the request of an owner, shelter or rescue.
