Houston Sheltie Sanctuary

If you are interested in adopting one of our Shelties, please go to the above sidebar entitled "How to Adopt", read about our program, then send in an adoption application. We only discuss individual dogs with approved applicants.

Foster Homes Needed

Without our foster homes, we can not save these Shelties. Houston Sheltie Sanctuary pays for all medical bills; foster homes provide the love and food. All of our foster homes are full, so please consider fostering. We need foster homes for the puppies, other Shelties in our program and incoming Shelties. If you are interested, please fill out the Foster Home Application on our website.

The Number One Killer

The Number One KillerThe number one killer of our rescued Shelties is Heartworm Disease, yet it is preventable through a monthly pill costing about $10.00. Failure to give monthly preventative is abuse. We require all veterinary records showing vaccinations given and heartworm preventative purchased for all resident dogs. If heartworm preventative is purchased on line, we require copies of those receipts.
