OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS: We do allow out-of-state adoptions for ADULT dogs, however, the adopter MUST come to Houston to get the dog and take the dog home with them. We do not allow our dogs to be shipped. Also, our puppies can only be adopted to the immediate Houston vicinity as it takes 4 months to get them completely vetted at our vet here in Houston. We will not allow our dogs/puppies to be adopted out of the area without being spayed/neutered. We spay/neuter puppies at 4 months old. My name is Mavis and my foster mom says I have the world's best smile. I'm a pretty happy girl. The ladies here at K-9 are helping me feel my best. You see, sometimes my knees hurt but they were so nice they've paid to fix them for me! I love to chase my foster sister and my foster brother acts like he's too cool to play with us young girls b ut I know he likes me too. If I had the choice, I'd spend my whole day cuddled on the couch next to you! I may be a big dog, but I like to curl up into a little ball and just lounge. I thrive on attention. Sometimes I get so excited, I just rub my whole body on you. My foster dad always finds the best spots to scratch too. They're pretty cool, but I'd love a family to call my own. I promise to be the sweetest, most loyal dog you've ever met! Mavis is a female pit/lab mix about 2 years old and weighs 55 lbs. PUPPIES: Young puppies that have not had their second round of puppy shots will not be at the Adoption Center for our weekend adoption events. If you are interested in adopting a puppy, please fill out an application on our website http://www.k-9angelsrescue.org/k9_angels_rescue_adoption_process.html. If your application is approved, a meeting can be arranged. Also, we only adopt young puppies locally due to the 4 month time frame it takes to get them fully vetted and altered. SPAY/NEUTER: As we believe proper healthcare of one's pet is a requirement of good ownership K-9 Angels Rescue only adopts out dogs that have been fully vetted. If the dog being adopted is not already altered at the time of their adoption, the dog will be altered within 2 weeks of adoption at our vet at our cost, with the exception of puppies which will be altered as soon as the puppy is ready. NOTE: All dogs are officially the property of K-9 Angels Rescue until they are altered by our veterinarian. Please LIKE and share our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/k9angelsrescue.
