If you have found a dog that needs help, you should email the intake address above with as much information as possible, including photos. Please be aware that Lucky Dog rescue is an all-foster organization and we do not have a shelter location. All of our dogs are placed in individual homes until they are adopted and our intake is limited to the number of foster homes available.

If you would be willing to foster, or know someone who would, the chances that we will be able to help are increased. However, fosters must be willing to commit to fostering until the dog(s) are adopted, which can take weeks or months depending on the dog. Please see the “Become a Foster” page for more information and the foster application/contract. Lucky Dog Rescue does pay for all routine medical needs and may be able to provide food, supplies, etc.

We are an all-volunteer organization and typically have more requests than we can manage so please be patient when waiting for a response and again, for a dog that needs help, your own marketing efforts to help find a foster will greatly assist us in being able to help so please have interested parties complete the foster application/contract as soon as possible.

Additional Info:

Note that the city of Houston Shelter, BARC, currently has an 80% “live release” rate, mostly due to the amazing efforts of While we can’t guarantee anything with regard to any animal that might be turned into BARC, this is a much lower kill rate than ANY other area shelter so please keep that in mind if you run out of options.

The Houston SPCA remains the only agency that provides an injured animal ambulance and rescue service 24 hours a day every day of the year. Call 713- 869-SPCA {7722} to report an injured animal in need. *Note that SPCA automatically puts down any pittie or suspected pittie-mix – across the board.

All Houston-area rescue groups are inundated with requests and there aren’t any “no kill” shelters in Houston. All rescues are foster-based. We have an urgent problem and need leadership from city leaders on this issue of stray and abandoned animals in our city. Please check out to see how you can help encourage change!
