S.A.V.E. has created some very targeted programs to help us adopt more dogs and cats and to continue to be able to take in animals that shelters and other groups can not handle. Each of these Programs needs funding or volunteers to continue and grow. Where we ask for funding you can be sure that your money goes directly to the area where you want to help, not towards overhead or salaries (since we are 100% volunteer we don’t have any!)
Rescue Groups SAVE a higher percentage of animals. One of our biggest problems is that we have no “storefront” – a place to meet and greet our adoptables. To solve this we have built a Custom Designed 30 foot trailer for mobile adoption events (dogs and cats)! The trailer will be able to house up to 20 dogs or cats so that we can take them to special events and high traffic areas to be adopted. Learn more!
New Adoption events
Since rescue groups are almost wholly foster home based, with no adoption facility for showcasing adoptable animals, we rely on adoption events to introduce the public to our animals needing permanent homes. Learn More!
In many cases adoptable dogs and cats do not find homes because they have a treatable medical condition, heartworm disease, respiratory illness, skin condition, etc. S.A.V.E. takes in many of these animals and we have generous Vet partners who help us treat them at a low cost – best of all our adoptables are in Foster Homes so they can be treated effectively without risk of an “outbreak” that can affect a group of animals unlike a shelter environment.

This program gets to the source of the overpopulation problem by identifying a colony of feral cats and getting every animal in the colony altered. The animals are altered at free monthly feral cat clinics and at low cost at once a week appointments at a local spay/neuter clinic. Learn More!
Pups on Planes (and Trucks)
Many areas of the country do not have a pet overpopulation program and, in fact, have few choices of adoptable pets. SAVE Rescue does direct adoptions to the Northeast and the Northwest U.S. and to part of Canada. Many larger dogs that would be passed over for adoption in Houston area shelters are prime candidates for adoption in these areas. All homes are strictly screened to make sure each animal is getting the loving home it deserves.
