  • ADOPTION NEWS 🎉
    We pulled Sonny (formerly known as Forest) about 3 months ago as a foster to adopt from the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter. It was a love match right off the bat for the humans and Sonny, but they wanted to be sure that their resident diva dog Maggie (rear) would welcome a brother. Through a lot of work, Sonny has settled into the family and they've made it official, he is home!! Not only does Sonny have a home, he also has a job assisting his Dad with dog training. Congrats Sonny and family! 👏🏻🐶😍

    What did I do deserve this tortured life... I was always obedient , tried so hard to please my family , I begged for anyone to show me kindness
    I begged for food , I begged for water, but there were weeks I starved and was so weak , I was so thirsty, longing for someone to help me and escape
    For 6 long years I have been locked up on this patio , through cold winters when I froze to near death and summers , where I thought my skin was going to burn off
    I’ve been so lonely , so closed off from the world around me and why was I sentenced to this imprisonment?
    My only crime is that I was born and unlucky
    My back is broken from years of neglect , my body has pressure sores all over it from the cold concrete and I’m only 25 lbs and should we at least 55 lbs . I’m now a skeleton almost ready to die
    If my life were not bad enough , my family just moved away 10 days ago and left me here, to finish me off , my slow tortured death
    This photo you see ,is from a neighbor who spotted me from outside the gate and called animal control a week ago
    The gate was locked tight but no one was inside
    She waited every day for animal control to come, but they never did ,so she broke the gate and busted me out of my hell
    Now I might have a chance at survival
    I don’t know though if I’m beyond help.
    But I have the will to live
    I have a name now and it’s Joshua, which means life
    My medical care will be very expensive
    My back is broken and bent in half, I need emergency-medical care
    Please Help !!!

  • Bertie is a super smart, happy, food motivated and people-centered little girl who has a lot of Pyr DNA in her body. She LOVES kids and would do great in a family home where she can keep an eye on her people. She is also great with other dogs.

    Bertie's only 3 months and is already big, so she would love to have humans who can teach her how to be a v good girl.

    Apply to adopt Bertie today at txpyrs.org/application!

  • Carter Update
    ❤️
    Sweet 10-yr-old Carter arrived into rescue unable to see with severe cataracts in both eyes. He underwent cataract corrective surgery for his right eye but his left eye was far too advanced and needed to be removed. Sadly, Carter suffered a complication in his remaining eye in the weeks after his surgery when an infection developed. Despite immediate and aggressive treatments by his team of specialists, Carter lost his remaining eye as well.
    🐾
    Carter will need a very special “Angel Adopter”. His Forever Home must be full of love, compassion and dedication to Cater as he adjusts to his new world. Carter is blind and his recovery is proceeding slowly but steadily. Carter was also diagnosed with Mitral Valve Disease and is under the care of a Cardiologist. His medications are helping and we’re happy to see Carter thriving and making progress. He’s a handsome, lovable boy with a sweet personality. He soaks up attention and especially loves his belly rubs.
    ❤️
    Adoption Requirements:
    🏡 Calm, relaxing home environment
    ⏰ Low Alone Hours
    👩‍⚕️ Follow Up Care with Specialists
    🐶Experience with blind dogs preferred 🚫No young children
    🐶Other calm dogs okay
    🐱Calm cats okay

  • Ayda • Female • 11 Weeks | Ayda was surrendered to us from a local who had over 20 dogs. Ayda has the sweetest face that you can’t help but give a million kisses to. She can be a bit timid at first but when she comes out of her shell she’s hilarious. She would be content being a solo dog, but would probably benefit from having another sibling who can teach her how to be more confident. She does play well with the other dogs, and would also do well with cats. She is extremely patient and great at waiting her turn, she is not pushy, or jumpy. She loves attention and snuggling. Ayda is medium energy so will benefit from dog parks or hikes/walks. We guess that she will be on the smaller side of her litter ranging from 30-40 pounds. If you’re interested in Ayda please apply online at www.helpaws.com/adopt. We need as much help as we can get to find homes for over 30 puppies right now!! Please help by sharing our post 😊
