Chihuahua Dachshund Mix
9 months
Male, Neutered

Twyla’s Friends is a small non-profit 501(C)3 all volunteer canine rescue/adoption organization dedicated to the responsible placement of stray and abandoned dogs that have come under our care. We receive no federal, state or local government financial support and all donations are tax deductible.

Donations are always appreciated and acknowledged. All dogs are thoroughly vetted and examined by our veterinarian, vaccinated, heartworm and fecal tested, spayed or neutered and microchipped. Our adoption fee doesn’t even cover those basic expenses.


Twyla’s Friends does not have a shelter or Kennel facility and relies solely on foster homes. Dogs fostered in homes have the advantage that they are learning house manners and rules from their foster parents and in return, the foster parents get to know the dog very well and can make the best possible match for a new family, as they know what their particular foster dog needs, likes, doesn’t like and is afraid of.

Twyla's Friends - Who We Are

Twyla’s Friends is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established in 1995. We are a small group of Volunteers in the Kingwood, TX Area and our goal is and has been to help homeless dogs in our community. We do not have a physical shelter or kennel facility; instead are a network of dedicated foster homes that house dogs and transform them into valued members of the family. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid members.
