Hi, my name is Acme. My mom, me and my twin brother were wondering the scary lonely streets of the fifth ward when some nice ladies rescued us. Thank goodness because it was getting very cold and I was getting very sick. They took me to the vet and now I am healthy and have a chance for a great life!! I'm about 5 months and 6 pounds now, they say maybe I'll be 10-13 full grown, but you can never know exactly. My mom is a cute 11 pound terrier, chihuahua mix. I'm pretty sure I am extremely cute and sweet because everyone keeps telling me. I can't wait to find a family to love me and keep me warm for the rest of my life! Can you be that family for me? I am now with Love Puppy Breath Rescue but if you are interested in adopting me please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you in touch with them. Be sure to specify that you are interested in Acme!! 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.
