Meet Milo. Milo was born on approximately November 8th under a house in the 5th Ward. He was one of Mamba's litter of puppies. They all look different so there were several Daddies. Mom is a 40 pound black lab mix. Milo looks like a chocolate lab. He weighs 16 pounds on February 8th so will probably be about 50 pounds full grown. Milo is He is very healthy with first shots & wormed and will be neutered and microchipped before adoption.. He was very shy at first because he didn’t have human love and interaction until we rescued him but he is really coming around. Now he loves to sleep in his foster mom’s bed every night and get cuddles and kisses. He loves toys and playing and is great with other dogs and cats as well. He is learning how to walk on a leash and waits for his treat now when he potties outside! Milo is going to be really easy to train and just so sweet and loving! If you are interested in adopting him please email his foster Mom at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out an application on forgottendogs.org. Please specify that it is for Milo. 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.
