Save A Schnauzer
Who We Are

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.  Our dogs reside in loving foster homes, until they find their perfect forever home.  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.

Featured Rescue

This handsome boy says Happy New Year from Arkansas.  Barney was adopted to his forever family in 2016 and is truly living his best life.  He loves riding around in his very own seat in his Mom's convertible.  2022 is definitely going to be another good year for Barney!

Another Happy 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.

A Rescue with a Heart

Each month MSRH takes in approx. 25 dogs in need of forever homes. They come to us as owner surrenders, strays or directly from the various animal shelters. Each rescue is then evaluated and fully vetted. Many are in need of medical support. MSRH treats many dogs each month for heartworms. Treatment is costly, but life saving. We have no shelter. We rely on loving foster homes to provide a nurturing environment until each rescue finds their new family. When we cannot find a foster home, our rescues are boarded. Boarding is costly, so we are always in need of foster families.If you are willing to open your home to one of our rescues, please fill out our foster application.

MSRH maintains ~45+ in rescue each month. These are dogs in foster homes, undergoing treatment in veterinary clinics and boarded at our partner kennels. 

Please consider donating to help MSRH defray medical and monthly operating costs.  Click on this link to donate.  Under Payment Purpose, select Veterinary, Boarding or Unrestricted Donation. Thank you in advance for supporting MSRH. All monies donated benefit rescues in need. With your help we are finding forever homes for more rescues.
