Friendly, happy, energetic pup that wants to run Flyball!

Poor little Phoebe, she was found in a ditch by the side of the road, poking her cute face up between all the weeds and trash, looking at cars as they drove by.  Her foster mom did a double take, backed up her car, opened the door and called for her.  Phoebe crawled out of the ditch, loaded with stickers, and crawled to the car where she promptly rolled over on her back for a tummy rub (the first of many, many to come). Her foster mom scooped her up and off they went to get a bath!

This sweetie is so friendly and happy and outgoing all the time!  She has a lot of energy and loves to play with other dogs, especially big dogs (she goes to doggy day care at the boarding kennel where she is fostered), but her favorite thing to play with is the tennis ball.  She will fetch it and bring it back  for as long as her foster mom will throw it with the ChuckIt.  Phoebe would be great at FLYBALL!  She is speedy, prefers the big tennis balls rather than the small ones, brings it back and wants to do it again and again and again ...

Phoebe weighs 20 lbs and her estimated birth date is 8/1/15.  She is fine with all people including children (she'd be fine with kids 5+ years old).  She likes to sleep on her dog bed, will take a nap in her crate, walks OK on leash, uses the doggy door and has recently graduated from Beginner's Obedience Class.  She is mostly house trained but sometimes has 'submissiive unination' when she gets really excited.  

Phoebe's ideal home environment would include a bigger canine brother or sister to play with, a doggy door to a backyard to exercise in, and an active family that wants a sweet, energetic pup to fill their days with fun and adventure!  And FLYBALL!  To see Phoebe in action, chasing a tennis ball, click on this link to her Flickr photo album,

About HOPE (Homeless & Orphaned Pets Endeavor)

About Our Rescue Group...

Our mission is to end the homelessness of cats and dogs through foster to adoption, feral cat Trap-Neuter-Return, and education.

HOMELESS & ORPHANED PETS ENDEAVOR (HOPE) is an all-foster, no kill adoption group based in the Houston area.

HOPE covers the cost of general medical expenses for the animals in the program, such as altering, routine vaccinations and treatment for parasites. Our foster families are asked to provide food, shelter and love to the animals for which they care. They receive no payment for the services that they provide. Without them, and the other volunteers who so selflessly do what is necessary to keep HOPE afloat, it would not be possible to run this nonprofit corporation.

One aim of HOPE is to develop a network of area rescue and humane organizations which will facilitate the rescue and placement of a variety of animals. The goal is to never have to turn away an animal in need. By forming a coalition of humane and rescue groups in the Houston area, we could potentially place all animals who need a temporary home until they are placed into a permanent one.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Mobile adoption sessions are held on the weekends. All adoption sessions run from 12:00 - 4:00 pm at a variety of locations and days as noted on our website For more information, please contact us at

Our Adoption Process...

Adopting an animal is a very serious decision and we want to be sure that our potential adoptive families have thought about the impact of this decision carefully. To adopt an animal through HOPE, we request that you complete an Adoption Application, a copy of which is available online for cats at or for dogs at You may fill it out online or print a copy of the application and complete it prior to arriving at an adoption session. This will expedite the adoption process and will also assist our adoption counselors in matching you to a suitable pet.

We at HOPE make every effort to match our foster pets to appropriate homes. If you feel that we are too intrusive, please understand that it is because we care about their welfare.

All animals are neutered or spayed and have received age appropriate shots prior to being adopted. We ask that you provide a $100 donation for cats and a donation of $150 for dogs when you adopt your new family member from us. This donation helps us in defraying the costs of these and other medical needs of our animals.
