Foster Homes are needed.
Please, read our Fostering 101 FAQ and consider becoming a Foster Home.

Houston Pekingese Rescue exists to rescue Pekingese dogs from Kill shelters, abuse situation, and voluntary surrenders (on a space available basis).  Houston Pekingese Rescue places these Pekes in Foster Homes until forever homes can be found and ensure each Pekingese is healthy, spayed, neutered, and up-to-date on all routine vaccinations.  This is a non-profit organization and 100% of all donations go to help the rescue dogs. 

Pekingese are very lovable, not bad tempered like many people have been led to believe.  Pekingese are always eager to please their humans.  The Pekingese is also known as the "Lion Dog," with their full  mane and pear shaped body, they do resemble the king of the jungle.  It is often said, should the Peke meet his namesake, the lion, he may be undaunted - he has no fear of animals many times his size (something Peke owners need to be aware of when you run into someone walking a large dog).

If you would like to help us help these little dogs, please see our Pekes Needing Help page.
