I am a gorgeous, friendly, energetic and unique fella.  For a while, I was a solitary kind of guy with no family, just checking things out on my own and taking it easy.  Then one night I had a run in with a UPS truck. He won and that’s how I became unique:  I am now a tri-pod.  My foster mom took me in, got me all fixed up, I learned to get by with just three legs and I am doing awesome!  I LOVE to run, play and enjoy my new life completely.  The only thing that would make it better would be to have a forever home of my own, hopefully with a canine sibling or two that I can play with; no cats please.  I currently live with two older brothers but they don’t play very much and I get bored.  I love to cuddle up next to my person on the couch, I’ll take all the tummy rubs I can get, and I even give kisses.  I am crate trained and trained for a doggy door, walk on leash, but pull a bit.  I love to chew on bones, toys, and I will chase a ball, but might not bring it back.  I would love to be your awesome tri-pod ‘cause we don’t need no stinkin’ 4 legs !!!!

Approx. DOB:  Jan. 2014. Approx. Weight:  35 lbs.

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.
