About Our Rescue Group:

Furry Pals began fostering dogs in August of 2006. Since then, we have expanded and found homes for many dogs. Our main focus has been, and will continue to be working to rescue animals from the Houston Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care (B.A.R.C.) the Montgomery County Animal Shelter (M.C.A.S) and other Greater Houston area Kill Shelters.

Furry Pals Rescue, located in Houston, TX is organized exclusively for the charitable purpose of preventing cruelty to animals by rescuing homeless companion animals from animal shelters and any other place they may be found. The organization will provide or cause to be provided food, shelter, and appropriate medical care for each animal.

Furry Pals Rescue will work to reduce the number of homeless animals by providing for spaying and neutering of all adoptable animals that come into its care which will help reduce the problem of overpopulation. The organization will work to place each animal in an appropriate, qualified, permanent home. Each adoptive owner will be educated by Furry Pals Rescue as to the medical and other needs at the time of adoption of each animal to reduce the chance of an animal being homeless again.

FPR uses the following guidelines and policies when processing applications. While not limited to, these are the basic guidelines. FPR reserves the right to deny any application. Please do not take this personally and understand that every volunteer in this organization works hard to do what is in the best interest of each and every dog.
Applicants must be at least 21 years old and live in or around the Greater Houston, TX area. FPR will not ship pets out of state, nor will we deliver. In rare instances we do allow for adoptions of (adult pets only) to homes in Texas outside of the Houston area; however it will take longer for the adoption process. An in person meet and greet is mandatory. This ensures there is a genuine bond with your potential new family member. In addition it will take time to locate a rescue organization in your area to conduct a pre-adoption home visit on behalf of Furry Pals. This decision is on a case by case basis and primarily for special needs Furry Pals only.
We require that all animals in the applicant’s home be spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, and on heartworm prevention.
We do not reserve or hold dogs. Even if you believe you may the perfect match for a particular dog, we will not hold a dog in a foster home while reviewing an application or waiting for you to decide if you wish to adopt.
We take the placement of our dogs very seriously and do not allow them to be adopted as gifts for another. We do this to ensure that the owner of the dog is the right match and we do require a 'meet and greet' take place prior to any adoption consideration.
Our priority is always the dog. We thank you in advance for your understanding of our priorities and requirements.
The adoption contribution (cash only), helps defray the costs of spaying/neutering, testing, and vaccination but rarely, if ever, will cover all expenses. The adoption contribution is non-refundable and to be paid at the time of adoption. Donations are welcomed and appreciated. For a list of typical fees please see why we need donations here: http://www.furrypalsrescue.org/Pages/Donate.aspx
By completing an online application and providing a vet reference, you are giving Furry Pals Rescue, Inc. express authorization to contact and confirm vet care of your previous or current animals.

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.
