Following stay at home and social distancing guidelines, we will not be conducting home visits at this time, and new applications for adoption will be placed on hold. We still encourage you to put in an application if you are interested in adopting, and we will contact your veterinary reference and be ready to move forward when it is safe to do so.
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.
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.
Dates coming soon!
If you are thinking of breeding your adorable dog, please read "Just One Litter."
The 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.
Pet Stuff Resale will reward shelter and rescue group dog adopters with 10.00 off any crate 35.00 or above. This applies to both new and used crates and is good anytime before to 3 days after the adoption. All used crates are disinfected. Pet Stuff Resale can be found most weekends in front of the Citizens for Animal Protection Thrift Store on I-10 near Dairy Ashford. For more information on this offer, call Pet Stuff Resale at 817-480-8400.
