Additional adoption info

We require that existing animals in a potential home are current on veterinary care; spayed or neutered if old enough; and that you allow us to confirm this with your vet prior to any adoption.

Our process is a meeting in a public place for the first meet and greet of our foster dog. If that goes well, we then contact your vet (if you have existing animals) to confirm veterinary care and set up a home visit. We would then bring the foster dog to your home and ensure he/she gets on well with all that live in the home and that it is a safe environment for the dog. A home visit is required before any adoption can take place. We try to do all our adoptions just before family has day(s) off from work so that time can be spent together prior to the work week starting.

Please understand we are all volunteers, so at times it may take a few days for someone to respond to your request/question.

Some dogs will require a fenced in yard and some will not. If there are specific needs for the animal, they will be listed in the write-up or told to you .

Adoption fees:
Puppy to 1 yr of age: $275 to $350
1 yr to 6 yrs of age: $200 -$300
6 yrs to 8 yrs of age: $175 - $200
Over 8 yrs of age: Adoption fee varies

Once completed it can be emailed to us at Please note: All questions need to be answered to process application. If question does not apply to you just type NA.

About Ruff to Rescue Express

The mission of Ruff to Rescue Express is to help Dogs in the Houston, Texas area get off the streets and out of shelters, and be adopted into loving homes. Once they come into our program, they are placed into a foster home. They are then given the rehab and veterinary care needed to get them ready for adoption.

We transport the majority of the dogs we rescue to our rescue partners in New York. They are placed in foster homes there and put up for adoption when they are ready.

Thus far we have rescued over 2800 dogs and transported over 2500.

Our main focus is transporting dogs in need to approved Rescues in upstate NY.  All our direct adoption dogs have been spayed/neutered;  heart-worm tested (if age appropriate); treated for fleas/ticks; microchipped; and examined by veterinarian and given age appropriate vaccinations. We take every effort to ensure the health of the animal and adopters receive a copy of all vet work performed.
We do not have a shelter; all dogs live in foster homes so that we are best able to assess what type of home would be best for our foster dogs. Our goal is to ensure a good match between adopter and foster dog to ensure the dog has a home for life and won’t have to be moved again.

Ruff to Rescue Express's adopted pets

Adopt a Pet is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in alvin, TX.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
