Tis the season for mistletoe, warm meals, and longer wintery (or as close to winter as Texas weather can be) nights. While the ushering in of the holiday season brings joy, there is nothing joyful about having a pet emergency interrupt your cheer. Holiday Food Holiday baking includes a lot of chocolate, seasoned meats, and […]

Sonia adopted her sweet Mia, a husky mix, about two months ago. Mia is a typical adolescent – she doesn’t know a stranger, is constantly annoying Sonia’s older dog, and like a typical husky has a lot to say! Her visit to Emancipet was for her second round of booster shots; the first was just before Harvey […]

Nora Gomez and her daughter Mia Tran visited our clinic with the newest member of their family, a fluffy peach colored kitten named Georgie. Nora’s sister feeds feral cats, and Georgie was abandoned by his mother. When Nora saw him he reminded her immediately of their beloved rescue Persian cat who passed away from Feline […]

Marie says that she was once depressed and lonely. And then one day, everything changed. Marie went to ACCT (Animal Care and Control Team) to get a cat- and that’s when she saw Checkers. He was 2 months old and the cost to adopt him was $85.  Marie didn’t have the money, but she had […]

Sheri has been rescuing animals as long as she can remember. Seven years ago, she rescued a pair of dogs she found wandering the streets. “Lucky hopped right in my car. Star was more cautious, but wasn’t sticking behind without her best friend, so she hopped in after.” The two dogs remain inseparable. Unfortunately, Hurricane […]

Summer safety tips involve a lot of common sense, but in the fall, as the weather cools off, we may become a little more lax, and worry less about pets overheating. But that doesn’t mean that this pleasant little season doesn’t pose a few threats of it’s own. Oh, rats. This is the time of […]

Julie Telford got Leo four months ago. She was living on the top floor of her apartment building when Harvey hit; she thought she’d be okay but the water rose 15’ to completely submerge the first floor and started creeping into her apartment. Afraid the whole building was going to be submerged, she got people  […]

Mary Tate’s grandfather wasn’t able to take care of his dog Scrap anymore. Mary’s job was to take in the lovable Norfolk Terrier until she could find a permanent home for him (not a bad assignment, if you ask us). She brought Scrap to Emancipet for a general veterinary exam and flea prevention medicine. Emancipet’s […]

Virginia has two Chihuahuas, both brothers, one black and one white and beige. Both are named Chiquito; Chiquito 1 and Chiquito 2. But only the vet knows who is who- Virginia just calls them both Chiquito.    Virginia has had both dogs since they were only 3 weeks old, and considers them her children. They […]

William Yerger recently brought in his rescued dog, Bane, for his first-ever round of vaccinations. Bane is such a lover, and greeted everyone in our clinic with sloppy wet kisses!

Sean and Oshean brought in their 16-month-old miniature Doberman/Chihuahua mix to be spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated. The pair Roxy when she was just four months old.  She has become the center of their world. As Oshean says, “She even made friends with our two cats right away.” “She’s such a good dog,” Sean says. “She […]

CinnamonE (the captal “e” at the end is added intentionally, “so it will be different”) belongs to Sandra Martinez. They grew up together; CinnamonE is currently 13 years old, and Sandra has had her since she was 1.5 years old. Sandra got a very skinny CinnamonE from a lady who had a lot of dogs […]

When Laura’s Shih Tzu passed away, she was devastated. The pup had been her constant companion in the years after her husband died, and her passing left an empty spot in Laura’s heart once again. Laura’s family encouraged her to get another dog, and when her niece found a litter of puppies at a near […]

Neighbors, Terry Brackin and Dana Harris teamed up to help each other and their furry friends. Unfortunately, Terry lost his truck in the Harvey flood, but Dana was there to help him out and get their pets to Emancipet. Dana brought her puppy, Cotton for her second set of puppy shots.           […]
