S.A.V.E Rescue Coalition was formed to help local animal rescue groups in the Houston Metro area work more effectively together for the purpose of reducing the homeless pet problem through Spay/Neuter, Adoption, Volunteering and Education. Our mission has expanded to provide rescue for at risk dogs and cats in the area with a network of hard working volunteers and fosters.
Rescue Groups are the heart and soul of animal welfare. They save animals from local “high kill shelters”, rescue stray animals off the streets, and take animals from concerned citizens who need help with animals they have found.
They provide veterinary care, food, and safe, caring homes for these forgotten animals in a very cost effective way. This level of care is often not possible for the underfunded, overworked and overcrowded Houston Shelters.
These groups are manned by volunteers who juggle their own family, work and friends to make a difference for Houston’s homeless pets.
While they save nearly 90% of all animals taken into their care they receive no taxpayer funds and depend entirely on donations.
S.A.V.E. acts as an independent Rescue. We take in many at risk animals that need medical care and other special attention including many animals that are out of time and are at immediate risk of being euthanized. We are the rescue of “last resort” for many animals. From January 1st through December 31st of 2016, we took in over 750 dogs and cats that had no other place to go. Since inception as a rescue in November of 2013, over 2700 animals have been taken in by S.A.V.E. Rescue. In addition, we have funded spay/neuters for over 225 dogs and cats belonging to low income/low information pet owner. Our TNR Program has altered over 450 community cats.
Take a look at our Community Partners – businesses who have been instrumental in helping us meet our goal of reducing the numbers of homeless animals in our community.
There are MANY ways to help:
- Fostering allows us to Rescue more animals,
- Volunteering allows us to hold more Adoption Events, care for more Animals and Find more Homes
- Donating helps us fund Events, Medical Treatment and Care for our Adoptables.
