WALLY,  is an adoptable dog being fostered in HOUSTON, TX.   He is available for out-of-state adoptions (see below for more information on out-of-state adoptions). 

WALLY.  Are you over that puppy stage, chewing on half of your home? Are you looking for a chill, easy-going, mature and friendly guy who'll be able to fit right into your household? Do you like the confident, low-rider types? Would you like to have a calm dog, who is quite content to follow you around like a shadow, and hang out while you watch TV or work on your computer?

 Don’t look further! Because I may be your guy.I like being petted, but I am not the ‘needy’ type. I am fine with a few minutes of love and affection, and then I can go right back to my bed. I also love hanging out with my family - I can help prepare dinner, do laundry or watch TV. So anything I get to do with you is great! I have a low-key, go-with-the-flow personality. We can hang out and watch a movie, I can take a nap at your feet while you work, or I can take a nap if you want to do the same. Walks are fun and a little playtime in the backyard will keep me satisfied. You know what else...I stand PERFECTLY STILL for my bath - it doesn't phase me at all!  I get along with adults and older kids. I'm ok with young children, but I'm a calm kind of guy and lots of hoopla might be a little too much for me. 

I will be a great dog for a family who enjoys peaceful times and leisure walks. Having a calm, polite fur-brother or sister will be ok too. I am crate trained and house trained. Once I learn the routine, I'm quite good! A perfect day for me includes sleeping at your feet, some ear and neck scratches, walk around the neighborhood, and lie leisurely around with a toy. I'm also up for a game of chase once in a while... especially if a squeaky toy is involved.

If your family would enjoy a calm dog that likes the company of humans and a moderate level of play, I'm your loyal guy. What I lack in size, I make up for in heart!

Age: 3 yrs
Weight: 35 lbs
Kids: older kids, preferred. Great with all adults.
Dogs: good
Cats: will probably chase them

***********

Many of our adoptions are to out-of-area adopters. The process is, for the most part, the same as it is for in-town adoptions. The adoption fee to out-of-state destinations in the U.S. is $550, which includes air transport, traveling crate, and health certificate.  The adoption fee for Canadian destinations is $600 (Canadian).  (Please note that there is an additional estimated $80 pick up charge in Canada).  RCR  takes care of all of the flight arrangements.  

Because of the distance, it is not possible for you to meet the dog, in person, unless you come to Houston. We can often send videos and/or do FaceTime interviews to allow you to “meet” the dog. 

Why should you consider adopting a dog from Houston?

Houston is the #2 kill city in the U.S.  City and County shelters often take in a combined 200-300 animals per day. The number of homeless pets and resulting euthanasias are staggering -- the average "live release rate" from Houston area shelters is only about 35-50%. Houston is estimated to have over 1 million homeless animals.   Over 100,000 are killed in Harris Co shelters every year.  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 Red Collar Rescue - Vancouver

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. 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!

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.
