Hi there! My name is Gator, but this gator does not bite :)

My foster dad said my name should be Gator because I love to just lay around and hang out, like alligators do. I do love my other foster brothers and sister, they play with me until I'm ready for my next gator nap. I had a rough beginning in life. I came from a home with 23 other dogs, we never got to go outside or learn to be real dogs. Our parents love us very much but it's hard to take care of a lot of animals. When my mommy passed away, our daddy couldn't take care of all of us anymore. He reached out to SAVE who helped us all find new homes. I was definitely the most shy of the bunch, but thanks to my foster daddy, I've really come out of my shell! I'm enjoying all the new smells and experiences I never had before. Life is great! It feels great to be doing dog things. Besides taking gator naps, I also love to run outside and explore the world. I love to curl up next to my humans when it's time for bed. I think the best spot for a nap though, is curled up in your arms. I also really enjoy being carried in a baby sling. As long as I'm next to you, I will be so happy! As you can see from my photos, I'm tiny enough to fit inside a pumpkin! I had fun posing for those photos and meeting everyone. I would love if we could sit down and chat and get to know each other more :) if you are interested in meeting me, please apply for me today!

I hope to hear from you soon!



About S.A.V.E. Rescue Coalition - TX Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

S.A.V.E. Rescue Coalition works to promote adoption through new adoption events, more public exposure of pets for adoption, and help the public make a good match with an adoptable animal.
Rescue groups work very hard to save animals every day, often using their own money, sacrificing time with family etc. We have animals from shelters and the streets of Houston that are now adoptable pets and we area helping these animals find permanent, loving homes.
We are all volunteer and no funds are spent for salaries, benefits etc. All money goes directly to the rescue group or their animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Please vist our website or Facebook page for a list of coming events.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fee range from $150-200 for dogs and $75-100 for cats and each animal is altered, microchipped and current on all vaccinations. You will be required to complete an application for your selected pet. You can do so at Processing may take up to 3 days. The application will include previous pet experience and vet info, how you will house your new pet and a little about your lifestyle so that we can be sure your pet will mesh with your family's activity level. We want you to have a permanent family member so we will take great care to assure that you find a suitable companion.
