Hi, I am Ivy. I was roaming the streets with 2 other dogs for several weeks. This nice lady began feeding my friends and I, and then I became pregnant. I moved my puppy from the drainage ditch to under that lady's house. The lady continued to feed me, and I began to trust her. Once my puppy began walking and was venturing out from under the house. The nice lady put me on a leash, swooped up my puppy (Margie), and brought us inside.

I am very friendly, and just want to be loved. I roll over on my back for belly rubs. I have learned "sit", "kennel" and I am learning to walk on a leash. I take some time to trust new people but once I do, I am a lovebug. I am good with most other dogs, and I am learning to not chase kitties. Do you need a new furry companion? I would love to be that dog.

About Westbury CARE - Houston

About Our Rescue Group...

Westbury CARE:

Westbury CARE (Compassionate Animal Rescue Efforts) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on the animal-related rescue and community engagement in Westbury, a neighborhood located in the southwest area of Houston, Texas.

We address many of the growing animal-related problems in Westbury, which include roaming/stray animals, lost/found animals, and a lack of neutering, spaying, microchipping, and pet licensing. We offer guidance on animal topics such as training, grooming, and proper veterinary care.

CARE focuses on pets in our area through five active committees that work together and work hands-on. We have a committed group of volunteers that work diligently to make all these things possible to achieve.

Through these committees and local events, we provide education and outreach within our community. We make efforts to reunite lost pets with their owners, and if we are unable to locate the owner, we work to find foster and forever homes for found pets. We also have an active trap neuter return (TNR) committee for cats in order to reduce the feral cat population in our area. Through donation drives and events, we are able to not only funs these activities, but educate and provide beneficial information to the public.

CARE’s focus is to monitor and offer support to stray and loose animals in Westbury while improving the quality of care for animals living in our neighborhood.

Animals can travel a significant distance in a short amount of time, so it is critical to communicate with surrounding neighborhoods and rescue groups. CARE's well rounded and thorough program allows us to provide a comprehensive and cohesive approach to animal rescue, therefore improving the quality of life for all who reside here.
