My story

Timmy and Joey were only about 3 months old when they wandered into a couple's garage. They were not wearing collars with ID tags and they were not microchipped. Apparently, they had been dumped in the neighborhood because their owners could not be found. Emmy's Hope Rescue took them in September 2021.

Even though Timmy looks like a red Min Pin mix and Joey looks like a mini Heeler mix, they act like bonded brothers. For sure, they are best friends. They love to run, play chase with each other, wrestle and sleep together. They are sweet boys, who are full of energy! They are friendly with other dogs and cats too. We would really like for Timmy and Joey to be adopted together, if possible. We hope to find that special family, looking for two small, mid-size dogs. 

Estimated birth date:  June 2021
Approximate weights:  Timmy -  18 lbs.     Joey - 22 lbs.

If you would like to meet Timmy & Joey, please call or text Stephanie at: 281-622-6549.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

1. Application
An adoption application is required, providing information about your family, as well as past and current pets.
2. Vet check
You give us permission to contact your veterinarian regarding current and/or past pets. You must have a good vet history, showing that you are a responsible pet owner.
3. Home visit
A home visit will be scheduled.
• To adopt a dog, you must have a fenced area. We will check it to make sure there are no escape routes. We will not leave a dog with you unless problem areas are fixed.
• To adopt a cat, the home environment must be safe for the cat. There needs to be a place where the cat can be isolated for several days until the new cat & current pets can get used to each other.
4. Trial run
There will be a minimum of a one week trial at your home, to make sure that the pet you have chosen is a good match with your family. If the pet does not work out, for whatever reason, we will take the pet back.
5. Adoption finalization
When we all agree that the pet is a good match with your family, the adoption can be finalized. An adoption contract is signed. You must promise to be a responsible and loving pet owner for the entire life of your new pet.
6. Adoption fees
• Dogs - $150
• Cats - $100
This fee helps defray the cost of vetting but by no means covers all the money already spent on your new pet. All rescues are completely vetted: all shots up-to-date, spayed/neutered and parasite free. (Dogs) are micro-chipped, heartworm negative and currently taking a heart worm preventative. (Cats) are tested and negative for FIV and FELV. Other health issues may also have been treated and you will get a history of anything that’s been done.
