Elliott, a 7 month old Shepherd Mix, is a very sweet boy! He loves to play with other dogs of all sizes, kids, toys, rocks, bugs…whatever! He is a typical puppy. A little on the shy side, Elliott quickly warms up to everyone he meets, human or dog. There’s not a mean bone in his 45lb body! He knows how to sit & lay down, is crate trained and does well when left in the yard to play.
Elliott is the sole survivor from countless litters produced at this one property in the Fifth Ward. He and his mom lived in an overgrown yard and kept to themselves, under the house, in order to avoid human contact…a survival instinct in this area! They had to endure rocks & sticks being thrown at them and when Elliott finally came up with bullet wounds, we knew we had to get him out of there immediately! He is fully up to date on all shots, neutered and fully recovered from his wounds. Watching him enjoy life, you’d never know the horrors he’s had to endure in such a short time.
Elliott would LOVE to go home with you and make you happy for the next 10-15 years! If you are interested in him please go to our website at www.forgottendogs.org and fill out an adoption application or email his foster dad at email@example.com. Be sure to specify that you are looking for Elliott!!! Thanks!
Rescue Group Info...
We rescue in a low income area of Houston called the 5th Ward. We founded Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project about a year ago to address what we saw as an obvious need to help the many stray dogs we were seeing in there. We set up feeding stations and network and pull as many as we can when a foster home or no-kill rescue group says they can take them in. One of our goals is education and we provide residents with vouchers that cover the complete cost of having their animals altered and vaccinated against rabies. In addition, we provide other vaccinations and worming in the field free of charge. Since November 2011 we have grown in size and have rescued over 250 dogs and a few cats from the area. We are launching a program called Habitat for Hounds through which we will donate doghouses and blankets to residents for their dogs that are kept outside. Our website is forgottendogs.org and we are a 501c3.
We do not have a regular adoption site at this time, but stay tuned to our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ForgottenDogs5) for our upcoming events!
Our adoption fee ranges from $100 to $150. We have an online application and a contract and all dogs/puppies are either spayed/neutered prior to adoption if old enough or arrangements are made to have them spayed/neutered afterwards.
