Meet Remy - A caring resident that has helped many of the animals in her East End, Houston trailer park community had been feeding a young stray dog we named Remy. After Remy was hit by a car, he disappeared in the trailer park’s laundry area until someone found him a few days later.
Luckily, Barrio Dogs was able to get Remy to the vet, where he had FHO (femoral head ostectomy) surgery to repair his hip. He spent several days in the hospital before being released to a medical foster. He is doing great and is ready for a forever home.
Remy is about 1½ years old and the size of a small lab. He has been fully vetted and is being spayed soon; he had to recover from his surgery before he could be spayed. We think he is a chocolate Lab/Rottweiler mix. He has a very sweet and loving personality; the staff at the vet hospital fell in love with him while he was there. His medical foster cannot keep him much longer and if a new foster or an adopter doesn’t step up, he will have to go into boarding.
Remy has had a very difficult life until now but we would like to find him a great home where he can enjoy the love and comfort he deserves. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.

Rescue Group Info...
First, the Barrio Dogs Youth and Paws (YAP) Program provides visits to elementary, middle and high schools featuring educational presentations, bilingual literature, guest speaker discussions, and an occasional visit by a rescued and rehabilitated dog. Also, Barrio Dogs Tales to Tails reading program helps children increase their confident and fluency in reading through one-on-one story telling sessions with a Rescue Education Ambassador Dog (R.E.A.D).
Second, the Barrio Dogs Therapy Program involves healthy, gentle-natured rescue dogs giving back to communities by visiting local nursing homes, children’s homeless shelters, and hospitals to bring comfort and encouragement to people in need.
Third, the Barrio Watch Dog Program will empower residents to recognize that animal neglect and abuse is a crime. With the Barrio Watch Dog Program, we aim to raise awareness of abuse in these communities, educate regarding standard and lawful animal care, and transform ignorance into action by reporting abuse. In particular, we aim to create intolerance of dogs chained to trees, animals locked in kennels, breeding and raising animals to sell, and dog-fighting culture.
Fourth, the Barrio Dogs for Better Communities is dedicated to creating a new narrative for dog owners, by providing an opportunity for a better quality of animal care in these low income areas. Fortunately, neglect is often unintentional as owners do love their companion animals, but often do not have the economic means for ideal animal care. For example, many dogs are chained due to the lack of appropriate fences. Barrio Dogs seeks to identify these owners to provide them with Freedom Fences, so they may unchain their pet, creating better pets and better communities.
Currently, the sad reality is that rescue work is unavoidable, because there are so many animals being neglected, abused or otherwise homeless in our communities. Due to the lack of a full-time staff or physical location, Barrio Dogs cannot serve as “first responders” for emergent cases of animal cruelty or rescue. We aim to provide information and other resources to the community, through our outreach and educational interventions, to encourage residents to take charge and be their own hero. By working together, everyday people can transform Houston’s inner city low income communities.
We appreciate your donations and support. Barrio Dogs is a 501c3.
