Saving one life at a time
Large and Giant breed dogs can sometimes be mistakenly labeled as dangerous or aggressive, when the truth is they are just ...BIG.
We specialize in Giant Breeds our dogs typically start at 90 lbs.
That label is the difference between life and death in a shelter.
At Jurassic Bark Rescue our mission is simple, to save the lives of as many shelter and homeless animals as possible. We are an all breed, all volunteer rescue group serving Houston, Texas and the surrounding areas. We are just starting and are still very small.
We work with all breeds and all community and city rescue groups, shelters and pounds. We volunteer our time to other rescue organizations in the hope that by working together we can share knowledge and resources to help ease the homeless pet crisis.
We concentrate on large and giant breed dogs primarily because they don't last long in a shelter. There is simply no room. Larger dogs require more resources and have their own special veterinary challenges. Shelters have so many animals coming in daily they cannot possibly get the care they need. It comes down to numbers. Each one of these numbers represents a life.
A life we can save.
A life YOU can save.
By rescuing large and giant breed dogs we hope to alleviate some of the overcrowding in our shelters, free up space, resources, and supplies, thus giving more shelter animals a better chance of survival.
At Jurassic Bark we do not make judgment on those life is worth saving, we believe no animal should be killed simply because of a lack of space, an arbitrary timetable or a budget. No animal should languish in a canine prison just because they are not the hot breed of the moment, or because they cannot fit in a designer purse.
Our dogs are placed in Foster homes, loved and cared for until a forever home is found.
All life is precious and as a community we must work together to protect and preserve it.
A Rescued Dog's Baggage
Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed,
Hmm . . . Yes there it is, right on the top.
Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss;
As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave -
I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,
Will you add to my baggage?
Or will you just look at my things
To put away my baggage, to never repack?
Too many times dogs are returned to shelters because people don't understand....give your rescue a chance.

At Jurassic Bark we never a put a dog up for adoption until we have had time to evaluate each one.
We completely vet each dog and address any medical needs, we live with them and address any socialization, temperament and emotional conditions.
All this takes time, we never post a dog before he or she is ready.
We want to be sure that they are healthy and that there will be a smooth transition into their new home.
As dogs become available for adoption they will be posted, some just need a little more time than others.
Here is our current adoptable list.
Please check our Face Book Page
as it gets updated quicker than the website and/or Petfinder.
Consider a rescue dog before you buy.
Consider fostering a rescued dog.
Consider finding a good home for the dog you are about to take to a shelter.

Falcor The Mighty!
Our new rescue was picked up as a stray wondering along a road in rural Montgomery County... Meet Falcor.
Falcor is the name of the Flying Luck Dragon from the Never ending Story... and there was something about this dog that reminds me of him !! He has almost no hair, he smells of infection , is all bloody. His ears are infected and there was a collar or rope or chain that was embedded in his neck at some point. He is ALSO.. sweet, loving, energetic, treat motivated, and lets you know when he has to go out! Thank you Minda Emas Harris and the dedicated staff at Official Site of Montgomery County Animal Shelter for everything you did to make sure he got out !! Falcor is being treated by Dr Heather Puksta, aka Best Vet EVER, at Stafford Oaks Veterinary Hospital. If you would like to help in Falcor's recovery you can donate straight to Stafford Oaks Veterinary Hospital at 281-499-3538 or here on our site.
We will be posting regular updates on Falcors' road to recovery, so stay tuned!

Recently we were asked to help out with an abandoned Chow. The owners moved out of state and left their beautiful Red Chow on the front porch where she sat and waited for their return...for 5 days. We were called when Animal Control picked up the dog and took her to a kill shelter where Chows are on the " Dangerous Dog" list and are NOT adopted out to the public.
Even though she is quite small for our rescue, we knew she would not stand a chance in the shelter and we could not turn our backs.
Shasta already has a new family waiting for her. Where she will never have to worry about being left behind again !!
The local houston Fox News station did a story on Shasta , here is the link.

The Latest Facts and Figures
This is why rescue /adoption/fostering is SOOOOOOOOO important !!!!
The Mayor’s Task Force report:
In the United States, Houston,Texas is second only to San Antonio in the number of animals killed in our shelters each year.
I found this a few months ago and think everyone should read it, when we have better information we can make better choices.
This is from an animal shelter manager, an inside look at what really happens.
How We Can Help
We will take an owner surrender - dogs must be in excess of 90 lbs.
We won't let this happen to your dog.
We understand that sometimes things happen, unforeseen and unfortunate things, and we do not believe that any dog should be punished because of that.
When we take an owner surrender we guarantee that the dog will NEVER be taken to a shelter.
We will keep the dog in our care or a foster home until the perfect new situation can be found.
Jurassic Bark does reserve the right to charge a surrender fee depending on the size and severity if the situation and we look at each dog on a individual basis.
