Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
TSDR rescues dogs primarily from local shelters around Houston, TX who need us the most as they are on limited time and need a second chance!
Purpose: Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes are gorgeous, affectionate dogs. Both breeds are active, intelligent, mischievous, and at times, stubborn! Many find themselves at shelters because they frequently are allowed to become bored. They resort to digging or other destructive activities to entertain themselves and to channel the abundance of energy they posses. In addition, many have a high prey drive which often times makes them incompatible with cats and small dogs. Like any other breed, sled dogs are not for every home.
TSDR rescues dogs primarily from local shelters around Houston, TX who need us the most as they are on limited time and need a second chance! We can occasionally accept sled dogs that are on the streets or surrendered by their owners. While we would love to take in every sled dog, we know that we cannot as we are limited by availability of foster homes, finances and resources. We do not have a central facility or kennel that we keep the dogs. They are housed in foster homes and occasionally in a boarding facility around the metro area. For those in our care, we provide vetting and lots of love while we try to find loving and permanent homes with people who are fully aware of their personality traits.
All adopters will submit a completed adoption application and will be subjected to a vet check and home visit with all family members.
All dogs placed by TSDR will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated for distemper/parvo, rabies, and bordetella, and heartworm tested. They will also be microchipped. New owners will receive copies of all available vet information and must agree to keep them current on all of the above.
Applicants must be 21 years of age and head of household.
Children in the home or that visit often must be at least 6 years of age.
Applicants who rent/lease must provide contract info on pet policy or landlord will be contacted for verification.
Adoption donation of $200 is due at the time of adoption. Puppies younger than 1 years old will be $300 and seniors over the age of 7 years old will be $150. As this is a donation, it will be non-returnable if dog is returned to rescue.
Dogs are not placed on a "first come, first serve" basis but rather the best home for the dog.
If you're interested in adoption, please complete the application.
Once completed, please email it to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 281-494-6226 or mail it to us at P.O. Box 16864 Sugar Land, TX 77496-6864.
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.
