Creation of Houston Animal Rescue Team aims to reduce abandoned and homeless animals.

Bob Milner, co-owner of Mercedes-Benz of The Woodlands, Holly Dool, and Schnauzer Rescue of Texas are teaming up to create a new dog rescue named Houston Animal Rescue Team (HART). HART’s 501(c)(3) determination is in process now.

HART’s board is comprised of Houston-area people who have long been active in dog rescue, and who want to make a difference in outcomes for stray dogs and those surrendered to local shelters. The new endeavor will have foster-based rescues, and will augment the capability to save dogs with a kennel-based system be built on a beautiful property in Tomball.

Rescued dogs will be fully vetted and, when ready, adopted on-site at the facility, or through meetings with fosters. HART will also coordinate with shelters in the northern U.S. to find homes for dogs that aren’t adopted locally. Additionally, HART will provide information, education and community advocacy to improve animal welfare via adoption and fundraising events, visits to schools, and through social media. The organization looks forward to working with a dedicated group of volunteers to reaffirm that Houston has a terrific HART!

Stay tuned for further information as the Tomball facility is constructed and populated! The facility is being designed for efficient sanitation and maximum comfort and socialization opportunities for the dogs. As the rescue takes shape, please consider helping with donations to help fund the initial construction and equipment costs. Your one-time or monthly recurring donation will help build a brighter future for dogs in Northwest Harris County. Want your name on a building? Contact us soon!

Those willing to help can provide ongoing operations support with the following amounts:
$10/month: microchip or rabies vaccination.
$50/month: life-saving heartworm treatment for 3 dogs each year.
$100/month: spay or neuter procedure, reducing abandoned or homeless dogs in Houston.

And last, but not least, HART’s dogs also need everyday items like office, cleaning and laundry supplies. Please visit our Amazon Wishlist at to select items to sponsor.
