Say hello to Lucille!

Our sunshine Lucille has made an amazing transformation and is thrilled with her new lease on life. Lucille wasn’t always all smiles. She was found in heart wrenching condition and that pretty spark in her eyes was nowhere to be seen.
Shortly after her rescue she went into an amazing foster home, where she truly blossomed. She now happily lives with 3 other furry foster siblings, who she initially loves to play with.

Her foster mom describes Lucille as an average energy level type of girl. She is a little shy when meeting new people but warms up quickly. Lucille has been exposed to various children at her foster home, except babies, but she has been very gentle with the little ones including elderly family members. Lucille has adjusted to living inside a home in no time. She is super smart and is already house and crate trained, knows sit, come, stay and leave it.

Here is what else her foster mom has to say about her:
“Lucy is a sweet little girl and very playful. She loves to be close to her humans but is not insistent on affection. If you start petting her, she moves her little head back and forth like Steve Wonder. So darn cute!

She has acclimated very well to our schedule. We wake up between 5:45-6:00 and she goes out for her potty break, then immediately makes a beeline right back to the house. The minute I let her in, she runs to her crate where she knows she gets a snack. She just loves her morning snack time.

Then we retire to my bedroom where all 4 dogs climb in my bed with me, while I drink my coffee and watch the news (wake up). At 7am, I start walking the dogs in rotation and Lucy and my two big dogs go outside for playtime, she loves it. They play chase, tug-o-war, wrestle, etc. When I return, I attempt to walk her but she is still very nervous about the leash. So for now we just work on getting her comfortable with the leash and collar.

She is very content hanging out with me in my home office while I work and then turns on her play time after work hours when the dogs are ready to play outside. Once they are done playing, she is perfectly fine chilling out with the pack, chewing on a bone or a toy or just lounging with the group.

She does well with my 3 very large dogs and my mom’s teacup Maltese. My mom uses a walker and Lucy is not afraid of it and knows to move out of the way when she is coming. Lucille can be fearful of loud noises and sudden moves but that too will subside as her comfort level rises.”

We think Lucille is a Golden Retriever mix, she was born around 11/12/2015 and is not even 2 years old yet. She is ready to have her very own forever family, one she can share all of her happiness with. Will it be you?


**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.

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

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.

Please apply to adopt Lucille online at www.corridorrescue.org.
Direct inquiries to: adopt@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.
