What We Do
Ruff to Rescue Express helps dogs in the Houston, Texas area get off the streets and out of shelters.
Spay & Neuter
Veterinary care is given to ensure the health of the animal during transport. They are also spayed/neutered before adoption.
Our volunteers transport all dogs and puppies in need to temporary foster homes in New York and Michigan.
“Fur-ever” homes are found by approved rescues in the north after they have adjusted to a normal life in foster care.
Donations to our rescue help with medical care for our dogs including vaccines, heartworm tests and treatments and spays/neuters. Some dogs have major medical expenses that go beyond our financial capability and we sometimes have fundraising events.
All of our dogs are fostered in private homes of volunteers. People believe that fostering is difficult and they would be unable to give up the dog. But it is very rewarding and many fosters keep in touch with the families who have adopted. If you would like to become a foster, please fill out the application.
