5/28/16 - URGENT COURTESY POSTING FOR VERNIE. I received a message from Yvonne Brown in Winona, TX, needing immediate help with her dogs. Vernie is the second of three dogs so far that Yvonne needs to place. Her doctors are trying to schedule her this week for surgery, she can't find anyone to help care for her dogs, and she will be going into rehab after surgery. Anyone wanting to adopt Vernie, please text Yvonne at 903/618-0431, or e-mail her at There is a $25 re-homing fee. These were the best pictures she could send me.

'This is Vernie. She is a full blood Catahoula, has brown eyes. She is spayed, micro-chipped, on Heartgard Plus, current on vaccinations, and house trained. She is a year old, has a wonderful personality, loves to play and lay around the house. Vernie and Sissy like to play together.'

About Tonya Griffith's Animal Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

This is a small animal rescue for cats and dogs. I have several foster homes in various areas, and I also do courtesy postings for people who need help finding a home for their pet, which is about 80% successful. The pet doesn't have to enter a rescue or shelter and the owner is contacted, so they decide who their pet goes to. If a person can't send me pictures, and they don't live too far away, I will go and videotape the pet myself to place pictures on the internet, or have a volunteer get the pictures. There have been a few pets that haven't been able to find a home through this service, but it depends on what the pet is and who is looking on the internet. When we have space available we take transfers from a local kill animal shelter. We also step in and help people who find themselves with multiple animals and no way to pay to get them fixed. Usually I will get all the females fixed to get their circumstances under control, and in some cases I will also help with donated food when I have extra. If they want to find homes for some of the many pets they have accumulated, then I will place their pictures on the internet for them. We don't euthanize unless a pet is seriously ill.

Come Meet Our Pets...

It depends on who has the pet. We don't advertise our address to keep people from dumping animals on our road anymore than they usually do, especially since this is also where we live. I like to visit with a person on the phone first before letting them come meet the pet.

Our Adoption Process...

Cat adoption fees vary from $25 to $55 for males, and $25 to $70 for females, which pays for spay/neuter and vaccinations. Dog adoption fees vary from $25 to $115, depending on how much it cost for spay/neuter and vaccinations. Adoption contracts must be signed upon adoption approval and any pet history information is provided with each adoption.
