K-9 Angels Rescue is an all-breed, foster-based
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.
We’ve been homing & rehoming Houston’s homeless
dogs and cats since early February 2012!
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.
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 guardian(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.
