Meet Canela!

She is a Pit Bull Terrier mix, weighs about 44 pounds and is 2 years old. Canela currently lives in a foster home and has come a long way. We don’t know what happened to her in the past but it left deep scars in her soul. The good news is: she is healing and leaving the painful memories behind. She used to be very fearful and just did not enjoy life. Her foster mom has helped her a great deal to become more trusting and showed her that life is actually not all that bad.

Canela now enjoys romping around in the yard and playing fetch. She could be a great jogging buddy! She is an avid swimmer and likes to lounge by the pool with her mom. Her foster mom said that Canela has become a true love bug and just won’t stop kissing her. She will sit for treats, is crate-trained, leash-trained, and potty-trained. She is good with older kids but no dogs or cats please.

While Canela is still wary of new people and will take some time to get to know you, she already has made best friends with the yard man. How many dogs do you know of that are friends with the yard man? She will joyfully roll around in the grass each time he arrives. He has no other choice but to get down with her and be showered with kisses. She is a very loving pup once she knows you. She is eager to please her human and even graduated from advanced obedience class. The trainer said she is an extremely smart dog and was easy to train. He has also been working on her fear issues and is confident that she will do just fine with a family that is experienced with dogs and willing to give her time to adjust.

Canela is a member of our continuing care program which means her adoption fee is waived for qualified applicants, and a reimbursement of $250 yearly for vet expenses (including preventatives), for up to 5 years, will be given.
She is current on her vaccines, spayed and microchipped.

**This dog is with Corridor Rescue in Houston, Texas but is available for transport to most major US and Canadian cities via United Airlines PetSafe for an additional $275. A customs fee may apply at Canadian airports. Ground transportation to Colorado is available for $75, and several locations in the northeastern US for $175.

We are a street dog rescue in Houston, Texas seeking to place rescued dogs in loving homes across the US and Canada. Our region has more homeless animals than homes, so we look outside of our area for adopters.

The adoption fee of $200 covers spay, microchip and current vaccines.

Please apply to adopt or Canela online at www.corridorrescue.org.

Thank you for considering a rescued former street dog for your next family member!

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!
