Mercedes – adopted

My name is Mercedes and I’m 11 months old. I’m from Beaumont, TX. I came from a flooded shelter after Hurricane Harvey. I am 100% housebroken. I get along with dogs. I love pestering my brothers, but they tell me when I’m too much. I do like to dig when I’m outside, but my foster Mom catches me every time because she thinks it’s not safe for any of us to be out alone. She says I need to have a very active family who will take me wherever they go. I love kids too. I will chew on things ...

Owen – adopted

Living in a shelter is hard for many dogs, but it is even harder for the ones who come to us from happy, loving homes. When Owen was adopted in May, after more than two years at the shelter, we were all hopeful that this would finally be his true forever home. Sadly, things didn’t work out that way and Owen is back with us after his owner became too ill to take care of him. Owen still doesn’t understand what happened. He continues to run towards every car in the parking lot, hoping that this is all a mistake ...

Hi! My name is Dot. I weigh about 6 pounds and am a Chihuahua mix. My foster mom tells me I am a sweetie pie. Sounds like dinner where is it? I really do enjoy my food and a few fingers to go along with if you have some. That is why my mom says I probably would not be good for young children. My  favorite place in the world is on your lap.

Winston – adopted

Winston looks like a dog who has not experienced much kindness in life. He came to us with significant hair loss, was at least 15 pounds underweight, and had two rather large tumors that had to be removed. X-rays also revealed that he has some arthritis in his spine. But after several weeks of TLC and plenty of food (and some good pain meds), Winston is starting to act and feel like a new dog.

Swish – Adopted

Despite her young age, Swish has already been through a lot. Swish arrived at Pet Refuge after many months of untreated – and most likely very painful – ear infections. There was so much swelling and scar tissue built up that our vet decided that her best chance at a pain-free life would be to remove her ear flap. To make matters worse, Swish also has some scarring around her muzzle. Yet even though she might look like a train wreck, she is the sweetest and most endearing train wreck you will ever meet. Swish is a 2-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback ...

Seymour has a lot of love to offer that special person who sees through his Walter Matthau "Grumpy Old Man" persona. At seven, Seymour is a low-key couch potato. He's perfectly house trained and walks well on a leash, but doesn't respond to verbal commands because of his deafness.

Macie – adopted

This adorable, bouncy mutt is Macie! We are not really sure what her breed mixture might be (Boxer? Terrier? Belgian Malinois? Akita? Lab?) – but we do know that this little girl is adorable. Macie plays like a Boxer. She likes to jump and use her front paws and might be overwhelming for a more laid back dog. However, she had a great time playing with Willie Nelson (who is also available for adoption). She is an active girl who would very much enjoy a fenced-in yard.
