A pair of dogs living on the edge of Houston and trying to survive. They weren’t at the top of the list for Corridor Rescue to take off the streets. They simply don’t have the resources — foster homes and money — to help every stray dog in the “Corridor of Cruelty,” as they a certain stretch of land filled with hungry, abandoned dogs. They feed the dogs and take in the emergency cases, sick dogs, injured dogs, old dogs.
Phyllis is a sweet, black mouth cur. Her running mate, Puck, looks just like her. They had been fed by Corridor Rescue for a while. They were hiding in the woods and came out for food. One volunteer donated a dog house for them so they’d be out of the cold. But then they disappeared and it was thought that they might have died. Dogs die because of traffic, injuries or other dangers. They just reappeared but they are not in good shape. They need help immediately and Corridor Rescue needs to get them medical care.
Another family group that is in urgent need of help is Peaches, a mama, and her two puppies. When a volunteer was looking for an injured dog last weekend, hoping to trap him and take him to the veterinarian, instead he found Peaches and her family. He was able to trap Peaches, but the puppies are still free. They are searching for them and want to get them medical care as soon as possible.

We urgently need funds for vetting. We desperately need fosters. Cases like these are daily occurrences out there. The Houston streets are a mean place to be. Can you help? Please visit www.corridorrescue.org and click on the green arrow to donate, or click on the “More Information” tab if you are interested in fostering or adopting. We cannot say thank you enough. And the animals living on the mean streets of Houston thank you, too.
