Texas Peke Rescue
Our mission at Texas Peke Rescueis to rescue any small dog in our area regardless of age or medical condition, and provide them with love, shelter, food, human companionship, medical care, and spay-neuter services through local veterinarians until they find their forever families.
We wish to stop the senseless euthanasia of any healthy, adoptable dogs in our
area. We believe each dog's life is
meaningful and each deserves a loving home.
Texas Peke rescue will try to rescue any small dog who is either abandoned in a shelter or living with an owner who can't provide care for it any longer.

Market: past, present, & future:
We plan to fund our company as a non-profit agency through donations and fundraisers
Problems and opportunities:
Over 160,000 dogs were put to sleep in Amarillo alone last year. By taking in abused, neglected an unwanted pets, we can find them homes and avoid some of these senseless deaths.
Over population of animal shelters is caused by ignorance and avoidance of spay/neuter programs. We will help this situation through automatic sterilization of all animals coming through our rescue.
Rescue and adoption of abused, neglected and unwanted pets.
Local kill shelters and ASPCA
We are a no-kill shelter, utilizing foster homes for animals until they find a forever family.
We specialize in small breed dogs only, whereas the local SPCA takes in mainly large dogs and cats.
Goals & Objectives
We would like to have our own facility
Be able to provide shelter for upwards of 25-50 animals at a time
Be an asset to the community, offering pet micro-chipping services.
At this time our budget is limited to start up and small donations. We plan to hold a few fundraisers this year to gain resources.
Technology: We have the use of one laptop computer and software specific for rescue organizations. We will need to purchase an additional computer once we have our own facility.
Personnel: We have one employee right now and will be utilizing the generosity of volunteers
Risks & Rewards
The biggest risk in this situation would be an animal that needed a serious amount of vetting, this placing a financial burden on the company.
Donations and fundraisers will be utilized in this event, we have several resources for such an occurance.
Finding homes for countless animals, who might have otherwise been put to sleep.
Being able to microchip animals adopted and community pets, helping them find their way home should they become lost.
Raising funds and awareness on the importance of spay/neuter programs in the area.
