Save A Schnauzer

Who We Are
Adopt a Senior Pet  Month

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.

Boris

Boris is one of the sweetest pups to come through rescue.  He is generally a happy go lucky little guy with just enough spunk to keep you smiling.  His favorite past times are sleeping, napping ;) and eating. Every time you go into the kitchen, he prances thinking he is going to get some grub.  Otherwise, he is extremely mellow, housetrained and a great work from home companion.  His foster has yet to hear him bark, he is easy to walk or content to just be in the yard.  He gets on with all the canine and cat siblings in his current abode. Boris recently had a hard few days as he had most of his teeth removed, but don't worry he can still chow down some kibble.  He also has a grade 4/6 heart murmur but, fortunately, testing found no other pulmonary or cardiac issues.  Boris is 10 years young and weighs about 18 pounds.  He is a handsome black Mini with natural ears and a docked tail.  

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.

Adoptable Dogs

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!

  

As we are getting many calls from both shelters and people who are no longer able to care for their pet, we are rescuing more Miniature Schnauzers.  With summer and fall schedules, many of our Fosters have been 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!
