Hi, my name is Hattie. (that's pretty close to "hottie" and I'm that too - check out my beautiful black fur!) I am Miss Congeniality and love to take walks, play with toys and cuddle. I have a mega-watt smile (think Julia Roberts) and bright brown eyes that sparkle. I am great with other dogs, kids, adults too! Wanna go on an adventure together? Let's go! (and if my brother Stetson can go along with us, that'd be even better! ) Email to meet me!

Age: 3 yrs
Weight: 40 lbs
Dogs? ok
Kids? ok
Cats? unknown
Needs foster? yes

UPDATE from Hattie's sponsor:

Hattie prefers Stetson's company to that of other dogs - she even likes to be crated with him.  However she is happy to let Stetson nap in their crate alone if she can nap on her human's bed!   She craves attention and loves to be petted... she even follows me when I visit!

--- I am being fostered in HOUSTON,TX. I am available for out of state adoption and my adoption fee is $495 which covers my vetting, transportation, travel kennel, and required travel papers. Please email if you have any questions or if you'd like to make me a part of your family! Most of the dogs in our program are eligible for out of state adoptions. Visit to view all of our adoptable pets!

Why should you consider adopting a dog from Houston?

Houston is the #2 kill city in the U.S. The City Pound (“BARC”) often takes in 150-200 pets per day either as strays or owner surrenders. Almost a dozen other area shelters and pounds also take in dozens  of homeless pets each day and many do not adopt to the public but transfer only to rescue groups. The number of homeless pets and resulting euthanasias are staggering -- the average "live release rate" from Houston area shelters is only about 35-50%. In addition, RCR works closely with the Houston Police Department on many cruelty case dogs. We are often a last resort for dogs who have faced unimaginable abuse and negligence, only to face euthanasia after being confiscated by the city government. Red Collar Rescue volunteers work tirelessly to save as many as we can, but the Houston area is saturated with so many pets in need of a home and not enough adopters. To put it simply, we encourage out of state adoptions because it helps us save more lives.  We hope that you will consider one of our many adoptable pets who are waiting for a second chance at a forever home - wherever it may be! #OPERATIONHOUSTON  #STRAYDOGCITY

Adoption Instructions

Red Collar Rescue works hard to find the perfect home for all the dogs and cats in our care. Listed below is the sequence of events that we go through to assure that our pets and our applicants are the perfect match for each other:

1. Fill out and return our adoption application form.

2. After receiving your application, we will verify with your vet the care on your current or previous animals.

3. We will contact you to discuss your current situation and which pet you are interested in adopting.

4. After discussion, we will arrange a time for you to meet your prospective new family member.

5. If the initial meeting goes well, we make an appt and bring the pet to your home to meet all family members - human and furry.

6. Upon agreement by all parties, the adoption is finalized by signing the adoption contract and making an adoption donation for your newest family member.
