My son Gablu, born 2013 on the streets of Houston - he is the reason I foster and rescue!

Must Watch Gems....


Gablu and his three siblings - of course anyone who has a cat, knows who runs this pack! :p

Recast is a 10 episode series about a background actor Paul (Palash Chatterjee) whose dream of becoming a successful film star keeps crashing, until a major production comes to Houston and Paul gets a chance to play a dead barron.



In 2019, A stray tabby who often sunbathes in our backyard brought us our second son, Mr. Kitty who became Gablu's best friend (after Gabi realized Kitty can't be eaten).

In 2020, Gablu got a new Belgian malinois sister Luna, who was tied to a tree, a frequent event during the pandemic. 

In 2021, while fostering a behavioral GSD mix Strider for Harris County Animal Shelter, we realized that he could not be adopted out, and therefore decided to keep him.Gabi is not happy and really treats him like an adopted brother. :(

Parental guidance recommended, as some of these are not okay for kids - eg - Blue is the Warmest Color, Burning, Audition, Mother, El Marginal, The double life of Veronique, Y tu Mama etc ...


NOMADLAND by Chloé Zhao, who wrote, directed, and edited it. AMAZING!!!

Frances McDormand, David Strathairn !!!!

Houston has way too many strays and shelter animals, who are perfectly adoptable, yet people still "buy" from breeders, even in 2021. 

The shelters in Houston are all kill shelters, which means dogs and cats that end up there will be euthanized if not adopted or rescued within a stipulated time. Rescue groups are saturated. They cannot pull animals without having fosters.
So please consider fostering for the shelter or a local rescue group. If you can't foster, you can volunteer as a local transporter who can give rides to the pups to the vets or their destinations. If you cannot volunteer, maybe you can donate towards their boarding or vetting costs.
Make sure to microchip your pet and update your information so you can be notified if someone finds them. if you find a dog, don't take it to SPCA - especially pitbulls. SPCA often kills pitties upon arrival. Any lost/found pet must be scanned for chip - it's free at the vet.  Post the found pup's pictures on your and to reunite them with their owners. Make sure to ask for proof before handing over a found pup. Some owners should not have pets. So, if you feel an owner is abusive or neglectful, surrender the pup to a rescue group.

Houston has a large animal problem. Let's come together as a solution and make sure every pet has a family and a warm bed. 💗
