Wondering how much you can expect to pay for a night on Check out our average dog sitting rates to get an idea before you start a conversation with a sitter.

Sit a Dog, Save a Life

Sit a Dog, Save a Life lets you raise money for local dogs-in-need by doing something you do already: asking your neighbors to watch your dog instead of leaving them in a kennel. Many Rover sitters in Houston donate a percentage of their earnings to nonprofits through Sit a Dog, Save a Life. When you book with a sitter who has the Rover Donation Badge on their profile, you're helping dogs in need, right here in Houston.

DREAM Dachshund Rescue

DREAM Dachshund Rescue, Education & Adoption Mission is a Houston-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing abandoned Dachshunds and finding new homes for Dachshunds whose owners can no longer care for them.

Their committed volunteers, working closely with local veterinarians, provide their Dachshunds with quality medical care and loving foster homes until they are adopted into carefully screened, permanent homes.

They also serve as a resource to their community, providing information on responsible pet ownership, the importance of spay/neuter, annual vaccinations, heartworm prevention, positive behavior training, exercise, and good nutrition.

Schnauzer Rescue of Texas

Schnauzer Rescue of Texas (SRT) was founded on the principle that responsible rescue, in the long-term, finds homes for the largest number of lost, neglected and abandoned Schnauzers. Their committed volunteers work cooperatively to maintain a foster family network where these Schnauzers learn what it means to have a dog’s life; what it means to ‘own’ a family; and what it means to live life with love. Their adopters are carefully screened and are chosen because they share our vision. In short, Schnauzer Rescue of Texas exists for the sole purpose of ensuring that the Schnauzers we assist make it to their forever, and perfect, home!

Tender Loving Crested Rescue

Tender Loving Crested Rescue (TLCR) is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abused, abandoned and neglected Chinese Cresteds. They are currently a private family rescue, operating in the Houston, Texas area. They are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Any donations made to us are tax deductible. We are limited to just the Houston and surrounding areas at this time but will help with other areas any way we can!

Texas Humane Legislation Network

HLN is the voice at the Texas Legislature for untold numbers of animals throughout Texas who suffer horrific abuse and tragic neglect at the hands of callous humans.
