Shaggy Dog RescueShaggy Dog Rescue is a non-profit and volunteer-driven organization that provides rescue services, vet care, foster care, and adoptive placement to stray and abandoned shaggy dogs in Houston.

All the animals under their care are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, and on heartworm preventative. They are then housed in loving foster homes until a new and nurturing forever home is found for them.

Their application process involves filing out an adoption application, followed by an initial check with the potential adopter’s vet if he or she has animals in care at that institution. An initial interview follows this to see if the adoptee is a perfect match for the applicant. Afterwards, there will be a home visit giving the applicant a chance to meet his or her prospective new family member and friend. This is followed by signing of an adoption contract and giving an adoption donation to Shaggy Dog Rescue. After three months, the adopter has to follow up with the group with photographs & progress reports of their new pet.

As a non-profit animal rescue, they rely on the help of kindhearted individuals who are willing to give a portion of their resources for the sake of their advocacy. All donations go directly to funding veterinary care, vaccinations, pet food, and similar care services that their rescued dogs need. Donations are handled by PayPal.

They can be contacted through mail at Shaggy Dog Rescue, 1337 Banks, Houston, TX 77006. They can also be reached through email at kathy@houstonshaggydogrescue.org. For more information, please visit their website at http://houstonshaggydogrescue.org.
