Garland Police Rescue 2 dogs Found Tied in a Creek Bed

While looking for suspects in a creek in Garland, a few Garland Police Officers came across the two dogs bound up on a piece of rebar.  The officers knew that the dogs would starve, or drown in the next rain, if they didn’t get them out so they jumped into action. 

All of the ropes in the picture were tied to the little female Chihuahua and the male scruffy puppy was tethered to the pink and red leashes and they were all tangled up around the rebar sticking up from a piece of concrete in the creek.  You can see this in the photo.  It appears that they were tied together when they escaped, and then one went under the rebar and one went over and they got stuck.  They were several feet from the creek, so it doesn’t appear someone tried to drown them.  There were a couple piles of waste near the dogs, as if they had been tangled there for awhile.
This picture was taken right before they were freed!

We are very thankful the Garland Police stopped to rescue these two lucky pups on October 19th.  The puppy is only about 8 weeks old and can brag to his friends that he's already ridden in a squad car!  Both dogs are now safe in the care of a loving foster home and will be available for adoption through TMHPR.  Please email for adoption info, thanks!

A ton of TMHPR activities on Oct 15!

Norah will be at Lee Harvey's!

On Saturday, Oct 15 we have all sorts of activities for you to stop by and check out!

We will have several of our available dogs at the Farmers Market at II Creeks from 930am-12 so please stop by and say hello.  The address is 2701 Custer Parkway.  For adoption info please email  Be sure to stop by our facebook page to see our complete list of available pets.

From 8am-2pm we are having a huge garage sale at our new adoption center.  The address is 561 W. Campbell Road, Suite 303, Richardson Texas 75080.

Domino, Wallie and Abe will be at II Creeks
Then it's on to Lee Harvey's where the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers is hosting the Third Annual Dog Day Afternoon.  The address is 1807 Gould Street, Dallas.  There will be raffle drawings and a "best costume" contest for the dogs dressed in costume. While viewing all the entertaining pet costumes, attendees will enjoy live onstage music. Admission to the event is $15.00, which includes 2 drinks tickets.

Sisters Daisy & Devin will be at Lee Harvey's hoping to find forever families.  Earhound Ripley is also hoping to find a loving home and will also be at Lee Harvey's.  All three were rescued from the same rough neighborhood and are thriving in their loving foster homes!
Scooter is another lucky pup that was rescued from the streets of Dallas.  He is about seven months old and will make appearances at II Creeks and Lee Harvey's.

Oliver is a three month old pup that was rescued when a neighbor kid was walking him with a 5 pound choker on him looking to give him away.  Fortunately our friend Karen intervened and took him in, he is a Cairn Terrier mix so won't get too big.

 Norah is the wonderful momma dog that was rescued from the streets of Dallas this past Spring.  People told us they fed her for over four years while she lived in a drainage ditch in a median at the busy intersection of 175/Buckner.  When we rescued her she had nine newborn puppies who have all been adopted by amazing families!  Norah will be at Lee Harvey's if you'd like to stop by and meet her!

Our cats will also be looking for homes this weekend!  They will be at the Petsmart at the NW corner of Coit/Campbell from 11-4 on Saturday and from 12-4 on Sunday.

Lilly & Bertie are available for adoption

Lilly & Bertie are two wonderful kitties that are available for adoption. They have shared the same foster home since they were really little so if you'd want to adopt both of them we'd give you a discount (but it's ok to split them up, we just want them to have great homes). Thanks!

Little Orphan Annie is available for adoption

Annie was found all alone on the streets of Dallas when just 8 weeks old. She is absolutely a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e and will make a great addition to a lucky family!
