Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There is a significant dog over-population problem in our region, the greater Houston, TX area. This results in unwelcome outcomes: 1. Significant stress and pressure are absorbed by taxpayer-funded public animal control shelters attempting to control and contain the over-population. 2. Due to lack of space, thousands of homeless and unwanted dogs in our region are humanely euthanized annually at public shelters. 3. Thousands more dogs continue to reproduce and roam the streets posing a threat to public health and safety.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization’s work benefits society on several levels. By “pulling” dogs from public shelters, including heart worm cases, sick or injured dogs and seniors, our organization relieves some of the strain on shelters and allows them to help more dogs and improve live-release rate performance. Furthermore, every owner/stray/breeder surrendered dog that we rescue is a dog that doesn’t find it’s way into a public shelter. Finally, the families and individuals who adopt our dogs will benefit because they are receiving a healthy and thoroughly vetted dog, greatly enhancing the chances for a successful lifetime human/canine relationship. “We don’t just save dogs, we save people too.”

The pillars of our operation are Rescue, Rehabilitation and Re- homing. There is no shortage of dogs needing rescue nor is there a dearth of families and individuals wanting to adopt – we just need to put them together. Our only limiting factor is Rehabilitation and it’s very expensive. Every animal we rescue receives a level of veterinary care that few rescues or shelters are able to provide. We feel that this practice is essential, to the overall well-being of the animals and to putting adoptions on a sound and successful footing.
Veterinary costs correlate inversely with the number of animals we are able to save. Non-veterinary aspects of our operation are managed with frugality and their costs are essentially “fixed.” Veterinary expenses including professional services, medications and supplies comprise more that 80% of our operating budget. The arithmetic is simple: the more money in our budget that we can devote to veterinary services, the more animals we can save.

Animal Rescue is a noble mission. At Poodle Rescue of Houston we believe that the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of distressed animals is among the purest of human endeavors.

• Poodle Rescue of Houston is a 501c(3) non-profit corporation chartered by the state of Texas.

• We are a no-kill shelter that has rescued, rehabilitated and re-homed thousands of dogs over a seventeen-year period.

• Our dogs are housed on-site in air-conditioned, spotlessly clean indoor-outdoor kennels. They are given plenty of clean food and water along with grooming, lots of human attention and affection.

• We maintain a veterinary clinic with a surgical suite on our grounds. We are capable of spay/neuter procedures as well as diagnosis and treatment for heart worms, parasites and suspected illnesses.

• We have a committed organization of volunteers and staff who love animals and who are dedicated to the accomplishment of our mission.

In our history, Poodle Rescue of Houston has successfully matched more than 10,000 dogs to loving homes. We have two principles that we strive to uphold in every adoption: first, to match the right dog to the family or individual; second, to match the right family or individual to the dog. Each principle requires thoughtful consideration and screening.

We try hard to make the process simple, friendly and stress-free for visitors wanting to adopt. The process is as follows:

• Prerequisites, Steps to Adoption, Adoption Fees and Adoption FAQs are thoroughly discussed and published on our website.

• Available dogs and adoption days/hours are published on our website, Petfinder homepage and, in some cases, our Facebook page.

• Our outstanding facility has three large covered visitation areas and two extra-large yards in which prospective adopters can comfortably meet and interact with the dogs they’re interested in.

• Adoption counseling and the application process itself are friendly
