About Pet Rescue Team

About Our Rescue Group...

Pet Rescue Team is a foster based rescue group that focuses on rescuing homeless, abandoned, neglected and abused companion animals in the Houston, Tx and surrounding areas.

Houston, Tx has an over population of stray animals of 1.2 million and it continues to rise. The hardest hit areas of course are in the low income communities of Houston. We focus on one of those communities, South Union & Sunnyside, in Southside Houston boarding the 3rd Ward.

We do our best to educate the community of the importance of spay/neuter and basic care of their pets. We help as many of them that need help with vet care and food for their pets. We focus on the street dogs and try to help keep them alive while we network them to get them off the streets and vetted, rehabilitated and socialized so that they can be placed in a loving forever home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

If you are interested in meeting one of our pets please email us at petrescueteam.tx@gmail.com and we can set up a meet and greet. Please be aware that in order to meet and greet our adoptables, you must submit an adoption/foster application.

Applications can be submitted at www.PetRescueTeam.com/applications

Our Adoption Process...

Pet Rescue Team has an adoption and interview process that allows us to make sure that we match you with the perfect pet for your family. There is an application to be completed followed by an interview and follow up that may include a phone call, email or home visit. Depending on the breed you are interested in, a home inspection may be required prior to adoption approval.

After the application has been submitted and reviewed, you will be contacted by the foster of the pet you are interested so that you may have a meet and greet and any questions can be answered by the foster as they have been caring for the pet and know his/her personality and demeanor best.

Our adoption fee is $175 and it does include spay/neuter, vaccinations, rabies, de-wormer, and microchip.

If you are interested in meeting a specific dog/cat please let us know and we can arrange a meet and greet with the foster. Please keep in mind that Pet Rescue Team is a foster and volunteer based rescue group and all are unpaid. We try to respond to you as quickly as possible but please allow us 2-3 days to get back to you.

Please go to our website at www.petrescueteam.com and fill out an application (required to foster or adopt one of our adoptable pets)
