Help the doggies rescued from the Corridor of Cruelty

Mommy told me that some mean people are abusing and neglecting dogs before dumping them at the Corridor of Cruelty (near Highway 59 and West Little York in Houston, TX). A nice woman named Deborah Hoffman and some volunteers from Corridor Rescue are trying to help these doggies but need your help.

The most recent doggy that was rescued is Charlie. You can read his story here. Mommy posted his photo for you all to see. He's not in great shape but he can get better with some wonderful veterinary treatment and a nice foster home.

When I hear about these stories, it makes me realize how lucky I am that I have a great mommy and daddy - even though I don't like it when my daddy gives me a bath and my mommy brushes out my knots. I know they're just trying to keep me clean and healthy but geez, don't they know I like to be dirty and roll around on the grass?

Daddy gave me a bath this past weekend and I didn't yodel once but I did try to escape towards the end. Fortunately mommy was there to make sure I didn't run around the house soaking wet. Then daddy took me for a walk so I could dry off and play.

I don't know why, but this past weekend I received a lot of doggy massages and snuggle time. I think mommy and daddy just love me more and more each day although mommy did complain that I scratched her face when I tried to wake her up last week. I can't help it; I want to say, "Good morning!" to my mommy and of course, I do my best to get her to feed me even though daddy gives me my breakfast. I'm pretty good at manipulating mommy with my tricks and big brown eyes. Even daddy has recently said, "How can you resist that face?" Yep, I'm a master manipulator and it works....well, most of the time.

I hope everyone had a good weekend. Happy Columbus Day - whatever that is.


  1. One thing I've noticed about hamsters is that no one dumps them beside the highway. I've also noticed they (the hamsters, not the aforementioned nonexistant people) don't climb on you or lick you or scratch you to wake you up in the morning. Oh no, no, no. Instead, they wait until you are fast asleep and then jump into their rattling, squeaky or otherwise noisy wheel and wake you that way. If you take the wheel away, they slam the water baottle against the side of the cage. Take the water bottle and they trash their cage.

    Silly Hammies!

    Tell your mommy to be thankful she has a sweet doggie like you!

  2. We think is is dreadful how awful some humans can be. We are soooooo glad that there are lots more good humans than there are bad ones!!!
    Well done for trying to help - we really do try to help in the UK and are just sorry we cant help every doggie in the world!!!
    love you lots

  3. Wow! Very cruel indeed. Had not heard about this, but pleased to know there is Corridor Rescue.... Can't even imagine why hoomans think it is ok to do this!
    I love my mom and dad, and am thankful they have me, and will always be up for more hugs and snuggles with them!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

  4. I really really hate some people. There have been so many dumpings going on in that area the last few months. Just disgusting.

    Def makes me love on my pets even more (eventhough they aren't fan of hugs lol)

  5. We khan only hope they will get theirs some day -

    Tank woo fur sharing and kharing -


  6. Charlie is beautiful!Bless those kind souls who helped! We'll keep our paws crossed for him to find a good permanent home. Thank you for sharing his story with us!
