These Harris County animals are at risk of being euthanized if not adopted, fostered
Meet Esperanza (Animal ID: A534365) a 4-month-old, Pointer-mix little girl at the Harris County Animal Shelter. It’s a fitting name since it means “hope” in Spanish. Esperanza has a deformed front paw, which doesn’t really slow her down. She’s very timid, though, and needs a little extra time to get to know potential adopters.
Esperanza is hoping to find a forever home. She, and many of the other 15 dogs photographed on Tuesday, were scheduled to be euthanized the same evening. Because of the photo shoot, we are able to get these dogs a few extra days to find their forever homes.
