Adopt A Schnauzer!

Submitting an application is the first step toward adoption.  If you’re interested in a specific dog or dogs, be sure to indicate which ones on the application by name.  If you submitted an application, but found a new companion from different source, please let us know.  We’re very committed to placing our dogs in loving homes so do our best to acknowledge applications in a timely manner so if you’ve submitted an application and haven’t heard from one of our Adoption Counselors within 48 hours, please email us at or call (713) 513-7811.

There are several required fields on the form below that must be filled in before the application can be submitted and processed.  And, all adopters must check the mandatory “I Agree” box at the end of the application.  

Pre-adoption home visits are typically required and prospective adopters are asked a number of questions to ensure our dogs are placed with individuals and families that are a good fit for their personalities, and fit your lifestyle.  We want their next home to be their last one.

Adoption fees generally run between $150 – $450 though there are exceptions.  The fees are a donation that helps cover medical care provided to all of our dogs and when necessary includes sterilization (spaying/neutering), immunizations, heartworm testing and treatment when positive, dental work as required and a microchip.  In short, if you  adopt a dogs from MSRH, you can be assured that the dog is healthy and thoroughly vetted.

Use the “Tab” key to move between fields and if you run out of space, keep typing. All text will be sent, even if it isn’t visible.

Your Future Pet
  1. NOTE: Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of Houston is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization. The adoption fee to MSRH helps to defray the veterinarian cost associated with these rescued dogs. The fee is non-refundable and is paid at the time of adoption. There are no exceptions. If you have questions about our fees, please view the information on our website (left hand menu). We reserve the right to refuse any adoption we feel is not in the best interest of the dog or the adopter.

    kind. We are looking forward to this journey, we all need each other. My husband sews and said he would try to make the fleece wrap’s, they are like a horse blanket, smaller so easy to put on one strap under tummy, one around chest, throw in washer, same as the fleece no sew tie blankets. Made with Love from our hearts.
