Meet Oyster!

Contrary to what Elvis sings, this Hound Dog will be your friend!

Oyster is shy but very sweet. He loves people. He has a very short nubbin tail. He would do best with someone who isn't gone for long periods of time but does well in his crate when he is home alone. He is crate trained and learning to house train. So far has not been interested in chasing critters.

Oyster is in a foster home with other dogs and school aged kids that he does well with.

Please consider making this handsome boy a member of your family and contact us to arrange to meet him. More information about the adoption process and an adoption application can be found at

How We're Helping

Our rescues are placed into foster homes until they are adopted. We rescue from most of animal controls in the Greater Houston and Southeast Texas areas. Our adoption events are in Katy, TX every weekend. All our animals are vaccinated, spayed/neutered and micro chipped.
