City of Houston and surrounding Counties. The majority of our volunteers are in the Alvin, Baytown, Clear Lake, Friendswood, LaPorte, and Pearland areas.

About Our Rescue Group:

Happily Ever After Dog Rescue is a 501c3 nonprofit, all-volunteer, all foster, no-kill group dedicated to:
Rescuing, fostering and providing necessary vet care to abandoned, stray and neglected dogs regardless of breed, age, or medical condition.
Finding permanent placement in responsible and loving homes for these dogs.
Educating the public on proper and responsible pet ownership.
Our dogs originate from all walks of life and come to us in conditions ranging from perfect health to verge of death. But once with us, we strive to make them all equals. They all receive the same loving care and attention to ensure their physical and mental well-being, as well as the same uncompromising dedication to finding the perfect home for each. Our volunteers pour their time, their money, and their love into making our dogs the best pets possible for you to bring into your family by fostering them in their own homes.

Our Adoption Process:

If you would like to adopt one of our available dogs, please contact us at happilyeverafter4dogs@yahoo.com to request an application. We will check vet records, conduct a phone interview, arrange a neutral site meet and greet with your family and the dog. Before permanent placement in your household, we require a home visit and a 5 day sleepover as an opportunity to see how the dog interacts with your household and to ensure we are making a good match. No adoption will be final until after receiving an approved & signed application, check of vet records, interview, neutral site meet and greet, home visit, 5-day sleepover and adoption fee.

Adopting family agrees to keep this dog as an inside only pet and companion. The dog is not to be a guard dog, fighting dog, or used for experiment or for research purposes. Adopting family guarantees that they shall provide their new family member with proper diet, veterinary care, kept current on vaccinations, on monthly heartworm preventative, and as needed, flea treatment.

The adoption fee is $180 for dogs over 25 lbs, $220 for dogs 10 - 25lbs(estimated adult weight) and $300 for toy breed dogs under 10 lbs (estimated adult weight) however, please read the individual bio of the dog you are interested in as there are some exceptions to those fees. Adoption fees include the microchip registration fee. All of our dogs are thoroughly checked out by a veterinarian. On their initial exam, they receive, as determined appropriate by the vet, a rabies shot, DA2PPL shot/s, heartworm test, and deworming. All of our animals are fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. If the dog tests positive for heartworms, they are treated. While awaiting adoption, all of our dogs are fostered in homes where they are provided monthly heartworm prevention, flea control, and any necessary medications prescribed by our vet.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
