We were featured in the Houston Chronicle for our rescue efforts in saving animals. Our unique rescue has been featured several times in different formats and newspapers. 04/12/2012. The article was great, the pictures were awesome and hopefully we let more people know about our rescue and the great job our volunteers do!
We wish to congratulate Thomas Davis for his article in the March issue of reptiles magazine. They requested his expertise in breeding corns and king snakes. Great Article
Founded in 1996 Pets Are Us Rescue has been saving many of the uncommon animals in the pet trade industry. Many of these animals are misunderstood or have grown bigger than expected (iguanas and snakes). We try to educate as much as possible and we are always available to care for these animals. Over the years there have been many people whom love these animals and have applied as volunteers. All our volunteers go through a very demanding and grueling process to become a member. They do this with their own money and dedication to these animals. All volunteers have specialized in different areas of the pet industry. We supply as much information as possible about the animal you are adopting!!! PETS ARE US RESCUE IS A TOTALLY VOLUNTARY ORGANIZATION. WE HAVE NO PAID EMPLOYEE'S. Before moving to Texas in 1996 we ran a rescue for more than 10 years called Fluffy Friendly Friends, we worked with exotics and dogs and cats. We placed many unwanted dogs and cats with elderly people whom need a companion, all the dogs and cats we placed were house trained up to date on shots-spays/neutered, It was so nice to go back and visit them. We unfortunately do not do dogs and cats down in Texas there may be a special occasion we take in small dogs but it is not our common practice. Business Philosophy Try to educate on how important these animals are to the ecological balance. The importance of saving our wildlife for future generations. We are all responsible for saving the endangered species and educating the next generation on the protector and ensure the continuation of a healthy plant and to end the extinction of endangered species!! We will always try our best to help and solve your needs; we understand you can be very afraid of some of the animals. We are here to help not make you feel worse. Professionalism is important to us and we want to help you understand and protect yourself, your home, and the wildlife around you. People Our volunteers donate their own time, homes, money, expense to help save these beautiful animals. We have no paid employees. Each volunteer does it because they love and respect each and every living thing. All animals are kept in the volunteer’s home; this ensures happier, healthier pets. Give 100% nothing else is acceptable, so our volunteers are very special people. We are proud to have them as volunteers and they are proud to be part of our rescue. If a volunteer is dismissed or removed from our rescue it has to be a very serious offense we do not do this for small offenses. We do not get involved in the politics and cut throat practices of putting down other people or their work, but if you have a question we will give you an honest answer. We want to ensure you get healthy happy animals if we have reliable information negative or positive we will give you an honest straight forth answer. If it doesn't work out with you and the new animal we take it back and wait for the right match for the animal. Never hesitate to ask us questions about the care etc about any of the animals we work with, we are more than happy to help you. History When the owners of Pets Are Us Rescue arrived in Texas they realized there was a great need for a rescue for these animals. They are also trying to educate people the importance of these animals. We have been doing this for more than 10 years and the animals are getting recognized and people are learning to take the time to educate themselves and live with them. We are taking their homes away by building more homes and roads. It is essential that we co-exist and save these animals Mission/Vision We would love to see these animals protected and taken care of the same as every animal on our planet. They hold the key to our future. Help us keep this important goal going. Without snakes we would be over run by rodents whom carry many diseases and have been know to be responsible for plagues on society. Each animal serves a purpose and they keep each other in check. From the largest to the smallest each has a unique purpose. We must protect our environment for the future.

Our rescue is available all over the USA and Canada. Each satellite works as an individual rescue. They follow the guidelines put forth to them by us. We do not have a facility all animals are cared for in our homes. This ensures better pets! Our volunteers specialize in different types of animals. We are also a teaching rescue anyone is welcome to join and learn but you must be 18 years of age to volunteer or adopt from our rescue. We believe in natural rehab as much as possible, no matter which method is used vet, or natural both are very time consuming and expensive.
WE DO NOT GET ANY OF OUR VET SERVICES FOR FREE!
We pay just like everyone else does!
We are forever holding fundraising events to raise money to cover our vet bills and we just pray for the rest!
And no matter what the vet bills are we pay them out of our own pockets.
Any and all pet donation is a tax deductible donation to you and will be applied toward the vet bill, animals food, supplies etc.
We rely "entirely" on foster homes, and your donations.
We have animals in foster care in with our volunteers
Due to the fact our animals are brought up and taken care of in our homes gives them a better chance to be loving, great pets. The pets we deal with are animals that are very misunderstood by many, it takes a special person to care for these animals.
We are here to answer any questions or comments you may have. We welcome any and all comments.
We are proud of the work we do and these special animals mean the world to us. We have many sleepless nights caring for animals. Getting calls from the police to remove a wild snake from someones home or yard.
The rewards are worth every minute!
Over the years we have gained more volunteers each specializing in different animals, it has helped us become the strong organization that we are today. We feel it is extremely important to have specialists in different area of operation. Each volunteer must qualify to work with us. Our organization is willing to teach those special individuals willing to learn.
