Heart of Texas Animal Rescue - Pet Adoptions

Heart of Texas Animal Rescue covers ALL expenses.

Provide food, crate, blankets, bed, HW meds, bowls - anything you need for your foster baby. 


Pick him/her up for vet appointments.


We are very easy to work with.  We try to make it as little work as possible for our fosters.  




Provide a safe, loving home until they find their forever home.  Sometimes this happens quickly and sometimes it's six months.


We ask that you try to drop them off and pick them up at adoption events on Saturdays (normally two a month).  We understand that not everyone is available every Saturday, in which case we can make arrangements to pick them up.


We will ask for pictures and videos to help us market them.  


What WE do. 

What YOU do. 

I came across a post back in May about 4 dogs that needed a temporary foster because their owner had fallen and broken her hip. Not sure what made me decide to help out, other than I love animals. I ended up only fostering 3 of the 4 (top left - 1 was adopted). Two were adopted out and one returned to the owner. Then came Roxy (top right). She was found by Ellis County Sheriffs with a rope embedded in her neck. Sweetest, goofiest dog. Next is Abbey (bottom left). She wa...s one of the dogs rescued from hurricane Harvey. She is heart worm positive which is being treated in a couple of weeks, paid for by Heart of Texas. Bottom right is Penny. She is recovering from a hip injury but you wouldn't know it with the way she gets around. I only had her for a week while her foster parents were out of town.
The thing all of the dogs have is love and gratitude. They are thankful that you've taken them in and shown them love and compassion. It's a satisfying feeling to see them gain weight and start to act like a loved animal should act. If you've ever thought about fostering, now is the time.Type your paragraph here.  -Leslie Martin

Please consider fostering for us! This is my current foster, Rocky Rocco. He is a sweetheart. He is about 4 and is fabulous with my 3 rambunctious boys. He lets them cuddle with him. He plays a lot with one of my dogs. We're working on playing fetch with him.

Heart of Texas pays all expenses. Rocky Rocco is neutered and up to date on shots  -Brandi Cardenas
