2018 was another year of challenges.  Intake and adoptions in 2017 were exceptionally high due to the huge number of dogs that were stranded and abandoned after Hurricane Harvey, coupled with amazing groups around the country that were stepping up to transport the dogs to other parts of the country for adoption.  In 2018 we faced some challenges at our kennel where a drunk driver crashed into the facility and narrowly missed the dog kennels but did structural damage the to the main building. We also had thieves steal food and medical supplies in our Corridor area storage facility.  In spite of these setbacks we continued to carry out our mission.  

  • Intakes: 132

  • Adoptions: 64

  • Out of state and other transfers: 81

  • Cultivated relationships with several out of state rescue groups that are helping to place dogs in parts of the country that have a shortage of adoptable dogs

  • Completed the remodel of the lodge building in our kennel that had been heavily damaged by Hurricane Harvey

  • Began construction of the meet & greet area where adopters can meet the dogs at our kennel

  • Provided roughly 15,000 meals to hungry and abandoned dogs and cats

  • Held our first annual Wags & Wagers Casino Night, which is now becoming an annual event

  • Chosen as a Halliburton Hometown Hero

  • Chosen to be the beneficiary of Miranda Lambert's August concert at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

  • Continued our weekly dog walking program that engages  many volunteers, especially ones that have recently joined the organization 


  • Intakes: 335 total

    • 187 were puppies

  • Adoptions: 90 total​

    • 40 were out-of-state​

  • Serious medical cases: about 9

    • including two e​ye removals, two gun shot wounds, car collision injuries, emaciation issues, other amputations, laceration

  • We opened our own kennel. The lodge will be able to hold 9 large dogs and 1 small dog.

    • Before this year we had to house all of our non-fostered dogs in other kennel facilities scattered throughout the city. That changed when we got our own kennel. We have a much better understanding of the medical needs of our animals now that we see our non-fostered every day. We can develop our own enrichment programs, have play training, and let the dogs run on the 1/3 acre space. We have a small staff that are dedicated to caring for our animals. We also have a vet tech medical team, including a staff member, our president, and an on call tech.

    • The kennel now lets us get to know our non-fostered dogs and learn their personality which helps us adopt them.

    • We have big plans to build more play yards so more dogs can get longer play time. Look forward to fundraising and volunteering events in 2018 to help us with the upgrades.

This year was incredibly exciting, intense, and busy. We ventured into managing our own kennel, held adoption events, extreme weather with Hurricane Harvey, built relationships with out-of-state rescues, and rescued many pregnant dogs and puppies!
