Meet Bo!

Bo is a gentle Pit Bull Terrier mix, approximately 6 years old and weighs 60 pounds. Bo was a long time Corridor resident, a dog we long wanted to bring into our program but who would disappear for extended periods of time. Other emergency situations would take precedent, and Bo would take a backseat, patiently waiting for his freedom ride from the cruel streets. After much too long, he finally was rescued.

Our volunteers found Bo laying in the grass, motionless. They didn’t know if they should be happy to finally have found him or concerned about being too late. He was exhausted, anemic and underweight. He may not have survived another day. He willingly let our volunteers load him in to the car and rode calmly all the way to the clinic where he seemed resigned to being rescued.

After Bo was released from the clinic, he went to a home-based boarding facility and his caretaker fell head over heels in love with him. “Gentle giant” is the first thing that comes to mind when speaking about Bo. He is very calm and sweet natured yet outgoing as he makes friends with people easily and does well with older children.

Bo is submissive with people and has an average energy level. He recently discovered the joys of playing with toys. He really becomes alive when he plays and always carries his baby with him wherever he goes. He prefers to play with his human over playing with other dogs.

Bo is crate trained and keeps his kennel clean. He walks nicely on the leash without pulling. He knows sit, stay and will come when you call his name off leash. He loves to do tricks for treats. His favorite commands are sit and shake. Don't forget to check out the video of him. We are quite impressed with what he has learned in such short time. Bo is a quick study!

Overall, he seems quite pleased with his new life. It is long past time for him to have his very own family and enjoy the perks of being a loved companion. Will you be his forever family?

**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 neuter, microchip and current vaccines.

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

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

About Corridor Rescue - Hartford, CT Transports

About Our Rescue Group...

Corridor Rescue Inc. is an all-breed 501(c)(3) non-profit street dog rescue on 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 to fend for themselves in an area in Houston dubbed the "Corridor of Cruelty." Here, trash and animals are discarded without thought on a regular basis. We're not talking about a handful of animals, but hundreds of animals fighting to simply survive another day.

Our Adoption Process...

How to Adopt from Corridor Rescue

Thank you for choosing to adopt your new family member from us!  You are saving a life when you adopt. Our team would be delighted to help you make the right match with the dog or puppy that will best suit your family and lifestyle. The first step is to fill out the adoption application below.
To adopt you must:
•    Show a government-issued picture ID
•    Be at least 21 years of age

Which dog do I choose?

You can see our adoptable dogs and puppies waiting to meet someone just like you right here.  If you find one you love, please put his or her name on your application.  Or, if you still aren't sure which dog is right for you, just note “undecided” in that section. Our placement team volunteers will help you meet your match! They'll read over your application and talk to you about which dogs you may want to consider.

What happens after I apply?

After we look over your application, a member of our placement team will talk with you on the phone about the dog you'd like to adopt and tell you more about him or her. Our volunteer may arrange for a home visit to help you ensure you are prepared to meet the dog's needs. If you aren’t local, your home visit will involve taking us on a virtual tour of your home via video or photographs.

How do I get my new dog?

If you are in the Houston area, we encourage you to come to our facility to meet the dogs, or if a dog you are interested in is in a foster home, a meet and greet can be arranged.  There is a $200 adoption fee for adult dogs, $250 for puppies under a year old. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and have been tested for heartworm disease.  Puppies too young to be spayed or neutered are available through our Foster-to-Adopt option.  With our Continuing Care program, the adoption fee is waived for some senior and special needs dogs, and an annual stipend for medical care is included.
We adopt throughout the US and Canada. We can assist in arranging travel for your new dog if you aren’t local.  The transport fee is $75 - $275, depending on your location and mode of travel.  We’ll be happy to discuss that with you. 

Every dog adopted from Corridor Rescue comes with our lifetime promise: If, for any reason, you can no longer care for your dog, he or she is always welcome to come back to us.
