We do not have a facility to house the dogs in our program. They are all kept in foster homes until they are adopted. Therefore, if you are interested in adopting from CCHS, you have to complete an online application at http://www.collincountyhumanesociety.org/adoption-application.html and we will contact you asap about the status of your application.
Hi, My name is Molly & I’m a rat terrier! I’m feisty, funny, very lively & yep I’m pretty proud of these ears! I’m somewhere between 2-5 years old and am about 10 pounds (which my foster mom is trying to add to). I was found in Denton County all by myself and had cactus thorns all over me – OUCH! I didn’t behave very well when my rescuers tried to pull them out – would you? I get along great with my foster sisters & brothers (dogs and a cat). I get kind of scared and fearful when there’s lots of noise and things I don’t understand going on around me. I ride well in the car and am almost potty & crate trained. I have most of my vetting complete but still require a check-up, sterilization, microchipping and heartworm test. I am a love-bug, but really enjoy my time in the yard playing with other dogs.
The Rat Terrier is the ideal farm dog that he was always intended to be. President Theodore Roosevelt is said to have given the breed its name after his own terrier had eradicated the rat infestation at the White House; clearly, the Rat Terrier excels as a public servant — as long as it’s in his own best interest. He’s an American tradition just like apple pie, but watch your plate or you may find you’re missing dessert.
