K-9 Angels Rescue is an all-volunteer, all-breed canine rescue organization established in February 2012. In the first two years of operation alone, we found homes for over 1000 dogs!
We are a rescue group for shelter dogs who run out of time.In other words, we are not a shelter, have no permanent facilities, and are not equipped to take in dogs from the public. We select dogs from the greater Houston "kill" animal control facilities who would not have made it out alive. (Don't worry! If you need help rehoming a dog, there are other non-profit groups who can assist you.)
No one involved in K-9 Angels receives ANY compensation.Our volunteers are compassionate animal welfare advocates who contribute their time, skills, and finances to shelter dogs in Houston. To save the lives of the abandoned, abused, and stray dogs who end up in Houston's animal control facilities, K-9 Angels relies completely on adoption fees, donations, and our amazing volunteers.
K-9 Angels covers ALL costs for dogs currently in the program.During intake, every dog gets a microchip and is either spayed or neutered. We fund all medical care necessary, even if we have to raise extra Helping Paw funds for special cases! From the time they enter the program to the time they graduate, K-9 Angels dogs are kept up-to-date on all vaccines (DHLPPC, bordatella, rabies) as well as heartworm and flea prevention.
We commit to K-9 Angels dogs until they are adopted.Our volunteer foster homes patiently provide safety, love, and integration into a household environment - a key to successful adoptions. The biographies, pictures, and even videos from foster homes are important "pup-licilty" for our dogs! We can always use more fosters - dogs without a foster home are sent to a boarding kennel during the week.
Our goal is a "fur-ever" home!We take every precaution not to contribute to the dog overpopulation problem here in Houston. Applications are processed according to our adoption policies to insure the best situation for our dogs and their adoptive families.
Mission: K-9 Angels Rescue is committed to rescuing and re-homing shelter dogs in and around the City of Houston, regardless of their breed or circumstance.
