Meet Penelope, others available for adoption at Humane Society

January 25, 2019 GMT

Sweet Penelope has had a rough start. The 3-year-old schnauzer mix was turned into the Houston Humane Society with a collar embedded in her neck that had to be surgically removed. Owners didn’t want to treat her, so they gave her up instead.

This gentle pup has a moderate energy level, meaning she might chase a ball but she’s not your marathon runner. She’s housetrained, knows how to use a doggy door and even waits when she needs to go outside to take care of business. She likes dogs, people and kids — and even cats. She knows her manners when on a leash, but she’s still trying to figure out the leash thing.


Like Penelope, Dante and Pickles are also needing a forever home. The two are inseparable like all BFFs are.

The Houston Humane Society, 14700 Almeda, is open 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Thursday; and 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Sunday. Adoptions fees are $125 for small dogs, $95 for big dogs, $50 for cats and $200 for horses. Fees include spay/neuter, vaccines and microchip. For information, call 713-433-6421.
