Princess in the making, looking for her fairy tale ending.

My name is Emma, I’m 6 years young and weigh around 65 pounds. I don’t remember ever being happy or feeling safe in my entire life. I have always been itchy, hungry and afraid of what may happened next.

Now I’m living in heaven, but they call it a foster home. Who knew, such things as dog beds and food and water bowls that are being refilled existed? And let’s not forget toys, lots of toys, just for me! I love to play and sometimes when I just can’t contain my happiness I gallop. What? Have you never seen a princess galloping?

I’m rather shy and it took me some time to get used to my new environment and people but now I can’t help but be affectionate with my human family. I melt in my foster mom’s hands, and time stops when she is rubbing my belly or scratching my ears. My skin is healed and I even have all of my hair back. The aches and pains are all gone as well and I'm ready to have my very own fairy tale ending. I’m excited and can’t wait to meet my forever family! Is it you?

I’m good with older children, I get along with other dogs, and I even tolerate cats. I walk very well on leash, take treats gently out of hands and already know how to sit. What I don’t like are crates, those make me very nervous. Lucky for me, my foster mom said I don’t need to be crated as I’m already house trained. I hope my forever family will be patient with me and understand that I’m a princess in the making!

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 with inquiries, or visit our website to fill out our online adoption application -

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!
