Meet Effie!

The last to be saved during our 2016 Operation Shelter pull.  This beautiful girl stole all of our hearts! She came out with a smile that melted all of our hearts and that one blue eye is just stunning. Poor girl was so dirty her gorgeous coat was yellow!  She clearly belonged to someone at some point, but they obviously didn't care for her the way a girl should be cared for. 

Effie is a big girl who is very confident. She's a mature girl, maybe 4 years old or so. She would do great in a home where she is queen and can get plenty of belly rubs, her fav!  She’s GREAT with other dogs (although we have not had her with any tiny tots – she would probably be just fine, but her size might intimidate them)! Effie does doggie daycare daily with 15-20 other medium to large dogs.  She has exceptional manners and plays perfectly with others.  She’s a super happy girl and would be a wonderful addition to most any family. She’s also a big love bug and if you let her, she will climb right up in your lap to snuggle.

Check her out playing with fellow SHR Alums, Mason and Charlie HERE!  She also loves to play fetch!  Check her out HERE mastering her catching technique!  She LOVES hanging out with the boys, click HERE to see her playing with SHR fellow adoptables, Marco & Polo!

She is currently heartworm positive (not contagious) but please don't let that keep you from meeting her. Scout's Honor is treating me through the "slow-kill" method of treatment and we would be more than happy to discuss it with you. 

Can you help us find Effie her perfect home?

SHR covers all costs associated with fostering!



About Scout's Honor Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Scout’s Honor Rescue is an all-breed, no-kill, Not-For-Profit 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization committed to bringing Courage, Character and Compassion to Houston’s homeless pet population and making a positive difference in the lives of these stray and abandoned animals and the Houston community as a whole. 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to saving the life of a homeless animal.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Scout's Honor Rescue does not currently have its own facility to keep the animals in its adoption program. All animals in our program are fostered by individuals who keep the dog or cat at their residence until it is adopted. Consider opening your home to a dog or cat in need. You become the caregiver to a precious animal – their future is in your hands! It is incredibly rewarding to know that you have given that animal the two most precious gifts- Life and Love. For many of them, this is the first kind hand they have known.

Our Adoption Process...

SHR will require an application and home visit for the adoption of any of our animals. The customary adoption fee is $150 for dogs $85 for cats.
