Degreed and well-travelled pup looking for a happily ever after.

Diego, is my name and I was rescued from a less than favorable living situation. Yes, I was once homeless. The only comfort I had was my street buddy, Bigelow. When it was cold outside we would cuddle up; when there were heavy downpours of rain we would squeeze next one another up against a large tree. Yes, we would still get soaking wet, but we had each other. We would protect each other and share our food. Every day we waited at the same corner for those kind ladies, who gave us yummy meals and scratched our ears. They would tell us,” hang in there buddies, we are working on a home for you two.” We didn’t know, what a home actually was, but those ladies kept us hopeful and waiting. My buddy and I had faced quite a few struggles but we always managed to survive. Then one day, I have to admit, we were pretty beat up, I was limping had a cut on my foot, and had bite wounds all over head, and my buddy was not any better off. So, when those lovely ladies arrived to serve us a yummy meal again, they decided that we had to get off the streets immediately. You just don’t know how relieved I was when they loaded us up in their car. I knew I was off to a better place.

Since my rescue, I have learned quite a bit. Life has been good and I had no idea how much fun I had been missing out on all of that time. Since my rescue I have earned several degrees. The Art of Squeaky Toys, Art of Ball Catching, Advanced Techniques in the Science of How to Manipulate Your Human, just to name a few. I have also travelled a lot. I would love for my new human to be just as well traveled as I would need you to take me to my favorite places. Long walks and dog parks are on my priority list, after that we might go to Starbucks to get a puppuccino. I know, I know what amazing treats those are. Ice cream will do the trick too. I also enjoy trips to Petsmart or Petco. So, please be prepared so we can take those fun trips together. I also know how to walk on the leash, I know basic commands, I’m house and crate trained and I love to play with most dogs. I can even tolerate some cats. I love all humans, children included and last but not least I have just earned my Master’s Degree in Cuddling. I had a rough start in life but I’ve come a long way. I’m ready and well-prepared to be your best friend for eternity.
Oh, I weigh about 45 lbs and I’m three years old.

Sincerely,
Diego

About Corridor Rescue Inc. - Pittsburgh Transports

About Our Rescue Group...

Corridor Rescue Inc. is an all breed 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable animal rescue organization on a mission. A mission of mercy, rescue and awareness. A mission to save lives and correct an injustice to animals who have been thrown away and left, often times injured and starving, to fend for themselves in the Hwy 59 and Little York area of Houston - apparently the dividing line for the county and city Animal Control. Its about a mile strip of road dubbed the "Corridor of Cruelty". Veer off to the left or right along any point and see the same everywhere - abandoned and starving dogs, in pain and suffering. Here, trash and animals are discarded without thought on a regular basis. We're not talking about a handful of animals, but hundreds of physically and emotionally damaged animals in the fight of their lives to simply survive another day.

Started by one person, Corridor Rescue has grown its team of volunteers, from all walks of life, united in an effort to help this community of orphaned animals in desperate need of help. We work to rescue hard to capture dogs and cats; to rescue and rehabilitate diseased and injured dogs; to facilitate the rescue of animals mainly from the Corridor of Cruelty but also from other areas of Houston; to educate about spay/neuter and animal cruelty laws.

Success happens everyday yet we know that our fight is far from over

Our Adoption Process...

We require all potential adopters to complete our pre-adoption application. Please contact corridorrescue@gmail.com with inquiries, or visit our website to fill out our online adoption application - www.corridorrescue.org

After review of your application, a rescue volunteer will contact you. We will check veterinary references on all current pets or any that you have had in the past 3 years. We conduct a home visit by appointment to meet family members, other pets, and to evaluate home safety conditions. If we feel the potential adoption is a good match for the family and the pet, then we proceed with placing the animal on a "trial adoption". We want to be sure that your new pet is right for you!
