Houston Street Dogs is a 501(c)3 non-profit organizations that rescues, rehabilitates, and rehomes bully breed dogs in Houston, TX. We have no shelter facility and all of our dogs live in foster homes, where they are potty-trained, learn good manners and get ready to begin their new lives with their forever families.

Houston Street Dogs is a 100% foster based program. We do not have a shelter location and we try to avoid boarding our dogs. That means that we can only save dogs when we have a committed and loving foster home lined up for them to wait in while they find their forever homes.
“An inconvience is an adventure wrongly considered.”
So, what is a foster parent? A foster basically houses a homeless dog while he or she is waiting to be adopted. It’s one of the most rewarding experiences you could ever ask for. Many people don’t foster because they claim to not have time or room or just don’t want to deal with another dog. We beg to consider being temporarily inconvenienced in exchange the most amazing, unconditional love you’ve ever experienced. In our long history, we’ve never had anyone regret opening their home to a dog in need; on the contrary, we’ve had many foster parents love their new additions so much that they end up adopting them!
Please bear in mind that we do not know the history of every dog we save, so some dogs will not be house trained or have perfect manners. We count on our fosters to show these dogs love and patience and to help guide them in their training so that they will be ready to be placed in a forever home. We do ask that you quarantine your new dog until you know more about his or her health and temperament, for the sake of your own family.
