RE: Elaine Ann Kmiec

This Court cannot leave unspoken its deep appreciation for Houston Collie Rescue, its many Volunteers and the Citizens of this community, this State and Country that has given their time and their money to right this unspeakable wrong. It gives the Court great comfort to know that there are so many good people willing to stand up for those living creatures that cannot speak or fend for themselves and who will not tolerate the mistreatment of life, regardless of form.

Fostering Program

Houston Collie Rescue is always in need of foster homes especially foster homes and or adopters who do not have any dogs in their homes. Some collies are so hungry for human attention and affection that they do not like to share their humans with other dogs. These collies are beautiful, sweet, and well behaved with people. Since most of our foster homes are collie lovers, only dog homes are in short supply.

Houston Collie Rescue provides the continuous Vetting for these dogs as
well as monthly heartworm preventative.
We can even help subsidize
the cost of food if needed.

pawAttention Applicantspaw
Houston Collie Rescue
was awarded 146 Collies by the Federal Courts due to an Animal Cruelty seizure in Tomball, TX. Most all of the dogs have been fully vetted and received assesments in foster care. Many were treated for varioius health conditions.
We have only a few left with some shyer personalities which require adopters to have resident dogs to help the adopted dog acclimate.

*Note to Applicants:
All your resident dogs must be on Heartworm preventative and up to date on vaccinations along with a fully fenced yard for potty and exercise. We adopt to indoor dog families only. So if your dog/dogs live outside or you plan for the adopted dog to live outside then

**Out of State Requirements.
Same as Above.
Transport of adopted dog will by you the Adopter only. Options are to fly down, rent vehicle and drive back. Warning! Folks are being hit with $$ one-way car rental drop off fees since its not a round trip causing expensive transports. Best option is the lengthy drive down and drive back.
We will not use trains or transport companies for your dog. Direct flight flying dogs at this time is not an option since we don't have the Volunteer/manpower for obtaining Health Certificates, purchasing crates or arranging trips to the Airport for Cargo Area drop offs.
