Labrador Retriever/Catahoula Leopard Dog Mix Dog for adption in Porter, Texas - Happy

Happy's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Happy's Story...
Meet Happy! a.k.a., as Sweetheart, due to the adorable patch of hair on her chest, in the shape of a heart. She is a high-energy, but very friendly catahoula/lab mix. Happy is fully potty trained and is a great companion dog for running or long walks. Happy is a dominant female and would do best with no other dogs in the house, no cats, and does best with children over 7 years. She was rescued from being shot. If you, or someone you know, are interested in Happy, please contact Nadia at njubran@marthaturner.com 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 300 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.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees are $150 for puppies up to 2 years old (plus an additional $75 deposit on those that are too young for spay/neuter), $125 for adult dogs ages 2-5, and $100 on adult dogs 6 years and older. 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.
