A RESCUE AND SO MUCH MORE!
Sweetpups Rescue and Sanctuary...A Rescue and So much more...
Every dog has a story and becomes part of our family while we strive to find the perfect forever home.
We are a 501 (c) (3), family oriented and family run organization.

Making A Difference
And yes, we rescue! Many of our dogs are found after they have been abandoned, some are off death row, some are owner surrenders. While our initial goal is to keep pets in homes, given the large number of unwanted pets in our area, it is just not possible all the time. We house a minimum of 100 dogs on the Sweetpups property, which changes substantially with every natural disaster in the Gulf. Every dog receives the utmost care, is thoroughly vetted, and is assessed as to the home needed before being offered to adopters.
Sometimes an animal comes to us with special needs that greatly diminish its chance of successful adoption, whether long-term medical, emotional, behavioral, or simply age. These dogs may enter our Sanctuary Program to live out the remainder of their days, however long that may be, in Sweetpups style. We have worked very hard to provide a life of comfort for these dogs that deserve to be happy and loved, but for some reason may not be a fit in a typical adoptive family.
ONE female dog and her offspring can produce over 67,000 puppies in a 6-year time frame. Realizing that we will never be able to rescue all the puppies in need, we can greatly reduce that number by working with the owners. We began the Spay Program to work with the underserved community, providing low to no cost spays, decreasing the number of litters. We believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and invite you to donate to this cause!
We saw the need to add a transport service to Sweetpups and make monthly trips to northern locations to move dogs into new homes. Some dogs will go to our partner rescues in other states but many go directly into approved homes. The dogs travel in style in "Sapphire", the transport van, and are tended around the clock until they arrive at their new destination. We invite other rescues to take advantage of our services when possible. Our cost to transport is roughly $100 per dog, made possible through your donations. Such a small price to give a dog a new life!
Along with all of our community efforts, the founders of Sweetpups publish an online magazine! Dogwood Digest contains travel stories, dog stories, recipes, crafts, and so much more!
ADOPT A TEXAS DOG!
Carly is a beautiful young girl that was abandoned at a local car wash, in heat, and tied with a leash and collar on. Whatever the reason for her abandonment, she did not deserve such treatment. Lucky for her, within days she was rescued and vetted and is looking for that forever home where nothing like this will be experienced again.
Carly is leash trained and kennel trained and is learning to sit for treats. She has had no accidents in her night time kennel and waits patiently for us to take her outside in the morning. Athletic and curious, this girl would be perfect for an active individual that is looking for a hiking buddy!
Sweetpups Rescue and Sanctuary knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through what we do. We have saved, vetted, rescued, rehomed thousands since our humble beginnings in 2010.
Well done is better than well said any day! We are a 501 (c) (3) and your donation is tax deductible to the extent the law allows.
