Mission

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.

We are always looking for new fosters. Fostering doesn’t cost you any money; we provide all the medical care, supplies, and the dog – you simply put a roof over their heads and show them love. Fosters play such an important role in a homeless dog’s life; taking one of these sweet dogs into your home temporarily is an incredibly rewarding experience that you’ll never regret.

We also focus on educating the public about the wonderful and sweet nature of pit bulls as well as the importance of spay/neuter. Additionally, we run a program called Fix-a-Bull (in conjunction with the Ambassabull Project) that pays for pit bull owners to alter their pets at no cost to them.

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.”

G.K. Chesterton

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.
