Adopt Red

Male Plott Hound /Rhodesian Ridgeback 


Red!! Formerly known as Prince, Red was scheduled to be put to sleep at the local county shelter. He was "owner surrendered" so he was once wanted by someone. Well, we want him! We want him to live! We want him to never have an empty belly! We want him to never feel unloved again! We want him to live the life of a carefree loved member of a family!

Red is just about a year old. He weighs about 40 lbs. and he is a beautiful shade of, well, red. He has light brindle shining through his coat that is just beautiful. He has beautiful light brown eyes. He is a playful pup and will make a superb addition to any family.

Red is quite the goofball and quite the character. He keeps his foster mom
laughing with his antics! And beware, he is a master counter surfer and loves pizza!! And cold cuts. And broccoli. ​And anything else he can snatch
off the counter! But we love this goofy boy!

Houston Homeless Pet Project

Shelter Description

Houston Homeless Pet Project ("HHPP")is a core group of dedicated dog rescue volunteers who, between us, have over 50 years of experience in rescue in the Houston metro area. We are the rescue of last resort for those good Samaritans who find homeless dogs and are just trying to help. We are also the rescue of last resort for those hopeless animals that find themselves out of time at local shelters.

We provide rescue care, rehabilitative services, foster care and adoption placement to abandoned and stray dogs in the Houston metro area.

HHPP is an all-volunteer, foster based rescue. We don't have a shelter and rely on foster homes to provide our rescues with warm, loving home environments until they can adopted by permanent families.

Shelter Driving Directions

Our adoption events are held all over Houston. Please visit our website at under the Upcoming Events tab to see where we'll be next.
