Pets in the shelter, represent them! Sherbet, 2, hopes to educate her fellow puppies who are waiting for their forever homes, including hers.

Sherbet is a Rottweiler-Dachshund mix who arrived at the Houston Humane Society in February from Edinburgh, Hidalgo County, after shelters in that area experienced high animal consumption.

When she arrived at the shelter, she became a true ambassador for her fellow puppies, accompanying and spreading the message of adoption at local festivals and school assemblies in the Houston area. You may even recognize it from somewhere!

Other than that, Sherbet is calm and gentle, and she can adapt to any environment. Just be sure to give the pets plenty of time!

Meet Sherbet at the Houston Humane Society, located at 14700 Almeda Rd. in southwest Houston, open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. If you would like to welcome Sherbet into your home, you can start the adoption process by completing this form.

Follow-up of the KPRC 2 Pet project: Mollie

Mollie and her adopter! (Houston Humane Society)

Last week we met Mollie, a 4-year-old pup who looks pretty in pink with her favorite cheetah hat.

After her adoption, an airline baggage handler saw her on TV, he fell in love with her! He shares that he loved his energy, size and smile, and is very happy to have a four-legged friend to come home to.

Mollie will be the only puppy in the house, so she’s guaranteed full attention, walks and more.
