Who We Are
Save A Schnauzer
Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of Houston, Inc. (MSRH), is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization sponsored entirely by donations. We are dedicated to the never-ending, sometimes overwhelming, task of saving the lives of abused, abandoned, and/or unwanted Miniature Schnauzers who have lost their homes through no fault of their own.
We do not operate a shelter. Most of our dogs reside in loving foster homes, until they find their perfect forever home. Others spend time in a veterinary clinic for treatment, if needed, and a few may be kept in boarding where they can get training due to social issues. Many of our dogs come to us healthy. Others are sick or injured. They may come to us from shelters, from the streets, from puppy mills or from owners who cannot, or will not, care for them any longer. In almost all cases, at least in their recent past, they have not felt the security of a loving home.
Our goal is to ensure these fine dogs get healthy, never again face life in a dangerous situation, and instead live in a safe, loving, and secure home for the rest of their lives. Since February 2000, we have orchestrated over 3,000 adoptions.
If you are interested in any of our Schnauzers that are ready for adoption, please complete an Adoption Application, and an Adoption Counselor will be in touch with you.
Star is a female, 4 yr. old, 14 lb, salt and pepper, Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail. Although Star is technically blind, she finds her way quite well around the house and outdoors. She will walk on a leash, sit on command and will put her paw up to shake when asked. She loves to cuddle on the sofa and gets along with other dogs as long as they don’t jump on her or try to play to rough. She does sometimes growl when she hears or senses a new person but so far has been able to overcome her fears if the new person allows her to sniff them and talks softly to her.
She would do well as an only dog in a quiet home with someone who has the patience to let her learn a new place.
Hey! We all need a "Star" in our life!
Adoption Fee $450

Come meet some of our sweet miniature schnauzers that are ready for adoption. See if one of these furbabies is right for your family. Please complete an Adoption Application if you have an interest in adoption.
Please visit our For Adoption, Just Arrived and Waiting in the Wings pages for detailed descriptions for each dog and to view all of our dogs available for adoption. If you see one you are interested in, please complete the Adoption Application under the Forms tab. We do not have a facility where you can view our rescues, as all of our Schnauzers are in foster homes. When you are approved as as adopter, we will be happy to set up meetings with any of our rescues.
CAN YOU HELP FOSTER?
MSRH IS IN DESPERATE NEED OF FOSTERS!
We continue to get many calls from both shelters and people who are no longer able to care for their pet and we want to be able to rescue as many Miniature Schnauzers as possible. With the holidays here, many of our Fosters are unable to help. If you have time and would like to foster a Miniature Schnauzer, please go to the Forms tab and complete the Foster Application. We most certainly appreciate your help!
