My name is Janet Noe Walsdorf and my husband Jimmy and I have owned and operated Alamo Heights Kennel Club & Salon since 2002. My husband and I are very fortunate to have the ability to also run a rescue for dogs in need. I primarily rescue dogs from the animal control center, but we do get dogs directly from owners in need of a new placement. All of our rescues are judged on temperment and adoptability, not by breed. We ensure that each rescue is current on vaccs, spayed/neutered, groomed, flea/tick preventative is applied, microchipped and heartworm tested. I firmly believe that dogs are our best friends and should be treated with love and respect. Each dog has a different story and we treat them accordingly. Some rescue dogs are at the facility for a week while others have been there for years. We do not ship out to euthanize if they do not get adopted quickly. I figure if I took them on in the first place, they are my responsiblity to care for until a forever home can be found. We only ask for donations for special treatments when required ie, dental, heartworm treatment, sarcoptic mange, surgery above spay/neuter, etc.
Come Meet our Pets:
All of our rescues are listed on petfinder.com and housed @ Alamo Heights Kennel Club & Salon. You are welcome to come by any day to view and meet them.
Our Adoption Process:
All interested persons are asked to fill out an application for the pet they are interested in adopting. We require them to come to facility a few times to spend quality time with the dog before taking it home. We do allow for home trial periods in order to ensure a proper fit and we accept the return of an adopted pet if the need arises.
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, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
