Howdy! My name is Stetson! My name might be "rough and tumble" but I'm all about the love! I am a gentle boy with a heart as big as Texas! I am calm and gentle but I also love to play, especially with my sister Hattie! I am great with other dogs and kids too. I am patient, kind, affectionate, walk nicely on a leash and like toys. I am well-mannered and my sweet smile will just melt your heart! So let's meet, I know you'll love me! (and maybe ask to meet Hattie too - we'd love to find a home with enough love for both of us!)

--- I am being fostered in HOUSTON,TX. I am available for out of state adoption and my adoption fee is $495 which covers my vetting, transportation, travel kennel, and required travel papers. Please email info@redcollar.org if you have any questions or if you'd like to make me a part of your family! Most of the dogs in our program are eligible for out of state adoptions.

Why should you consider adopting a dog from Houston?

Houston is the #2 kill city in the U.S. The City Pound (“BARC”) often takes in 150-200 pets per day either as strays or owner surrenders. Almost a dozen other area shelters and pounds also take in dozens  of homeless pets each day and many do not adopt to the public but transfer only to rescue groups. The number of homeless pets and resulting euthanasias are staggering -- the average "live release rate" from Houston area shelters is only about 35-50%. In addition, RCR works closely with the Houston Police Department on many cruelty case dogs. We are often a last resort for dogs who have faced unimaginable abuse and negligence, only to face euthanasia after being confiscated by the city government. Red Collar Rescue volunteers work tirelessly to save as many as we can, but the Houston area is saturated with so many pets in need of a home and not enough adopters. To put it simply, we encourage out of state adoptions because it helps us save more lives.  We hope that you will consider one of our many adoptable pets who are waiting for a second chance at a forever home - wherever it may be!

About Our Rescue Group...

Red Collar Rescue is an all volunteer 501 (3)(C) animal welfare charity dedicated to providing rescue services, medical care, foster care, training and adoptive placement to stray and abandoned dogs and cats in Houston and surrounding areas. We adopt our pets to all 50 states and Canada.

Houston is sadly the #2 kill city in the U.S. There are 1.2M stray pets on our streets. The City Pound (“BARC”) often takes in 150-200 pets per day either as strays or owner surrenders.

Our Adoption Process...

Red Collar Rescue works hard to find the perfect home for all the dogs and cats in our care. Listed below is the sequence of events that we go through to assure that our pets and our applicants are the perfect match for each other:

1. Fill out and return our adoption application form.

2. After receiving your application, we will verify with your vet the care on your current or previous animals.

3. We will contact you to discuss your current situation and which pet you are interested in adopting.

4. After discussion, we will arrange a time for you to meet your prospective new family member.

5. If the initial meeting goes well, we make an appt and bring the pet to your home to meet all family members - human and furry.

6. Upon agreement by all parties, the adoption is finalized by signing the adoption contract and making an adoption donation for your newest family member.
