I am already spayed, purebred, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Somebody tied this sweet dog to the fence at Noah's Ark. She is an Australian shepherd(mix) so we named her after a beautiful Australian city, Melbourne.
Melbourne is probably 4 years old and has a kind, sweet demeanor. She seems to want to please and likes to receive special attention from the shelter volunteers. Australian shepherds are an energetic breed with strong herding and guarding instincts. They need to be able to get good exercise daily. Although sometimes reserved with strangers, they are "people" dogs that want to always be near their families. Their thick coats require weekly brushing.
Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary is a nonprofit organization. It is a no kill shelter that rescues animals from kill shelters, takes in lost, abandoned, or owner surrender animals. Cash donations along with donations of food, flea medicine, and cleaning supplies are the only means of maintaining this safe haven for rescued animals. The organization is staffed by volunteers and one hired hand that are committed to our furry friends. We welcome scouts and other organizations to spend time at our shelter loving and caring for our animals. Release forms are required for minors, but they are welcome.
Please mail a check payable to Noahs Ark to help keep the shelter going. Otherwise, we can not keep it open.
Hours for adoption are Wednesday through Sunday from 12:00 to 5:00.
The adoption fee for fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered, wormed animals is $150. If the animal is not yet spayed/neutered, a lower fee is available so you can have it done yourself. The contract is a short two pages which can be filled out at the shelter. As we show potential pet adopters the animals we get a feel for their sincerity in adopting a pet. If we feel that the potential adopter is not adopting the pet to love and take care of the pet we reserve the right to refuse an adoption.
Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary is located in Cypress, Texas. We are northwest of Houston and serve Harris County.
