K-9 Angels Rescue is an all-breed, non-profit [recognized 501(c)(3)], canine rescue organization established in February 2012. Many of our core volunteers bring along
years of experience from serving other Houston-area rescue groups.
Since early February 2012 we have found homes
for over 3,578 dogs through 02/19/17.
Our volunteers are compassionate, companion animal welfare advocates dedicated to contributing their time, skills, finances, and experience. In turn, their dedication helps save the lives of the abandoned, abused, homeless, neglected, orphaned, rejected, stray, and surrendered dogs residing in Houston’s animal control facilities.
We are committed to rescuing and re-homing these dogs regardless of their breed or their circumstance. We are motivated by the dire need to educate the public about the effects of irresponsible breeding practices, while helping the community by alleviating overcrowding in area shelters.
K-9 Angels Rescue Board members and volunteers are 100% VOLUNTEER and receive NO compensation.
We are not a shelter in the sense that we are not positioned to accept dogs from the public. We personally select our dogs from the greater Houston animal control facilities where all dogs are subject to destruction because their “crime” is not having a home.
A dog selected into our rescue program remains in our care until adopted. Only when we are able to secure the best match between dog and new caregiver(s) is the dog released from our program.
We believe in foster homes. A foster home provides the dog with a loving, safe environment and allows for behavioral observations & modifications, and training. Fostering creates the opportunity to see how the dog interacts with human family members and furry family members.
When a foster family is not available our dogs are kenneled until transported to our Adoption Center on Saturday morning.
