Meet Tequila... Tequila is a great dog. She is about 12-18 months old and about 12 pounds. She was found hanging out under the deck of a bar, hence her name. She wants to be a couch potato, sitting right by you and would love nothing more than to hang out with you all day. She gets along well with other dogs but would be quite happy to be an only dog. She is vaccinated, spayed and heartworm negative. If you are interested in meeting this laid back dog please email her foster mom at Thanks!!

About Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue in a low income area of Houston called the 5th Ward. We founded Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project November of 2011 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 660 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 and we are a 501c3.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs ages 2 and older and $175 for puppies up to 2 years old (plus an additional spay/neuter deposit on those that are too young at the time of adoption: $100 local, or $250 for long-distance adoptions). 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.
