Mamba's Story...
Mamba is one of our Momma dogs from the 5th ward. She was a stray and her puppies were born under a house. When we went to rescue them she just came up to us with a “take me” too attitude. She was friendly and happy to see us and totally trusting that we would do right by her and her babies. She weighs about 40 pounds and we estimate her to be about 2 years of age. Mamba is an intelligent, loving girl, full of energy. She likes long walks and running around the yard. She gets along with dogs of all sizes and enjoys playing chase with them. Mamba is a great learner and likes to be challenged with new tricks. She is not food aggressive and enjoys a variety of treats. She is hoping to find an active family, who will challenge her, love her and provide a wonderful home for her. If you are interested in her please fill out an application on our website www.forgottendogs.org or email her foster mom at purplegorilla21@hotmail.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.
