We are committed to saving homeless companion animals, assisting other shelters/rescues through rescue transports, offer low cost spay/neuter services for our community, and educating the public on the issues of pet over-population, responsible pet ownership and puppy mills.
Highway Hounds is a 501(c)3, non-profit, foster-based animal rescue organization, headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas. We are a unique rescue organization in that we exist mainly to bridge the gap between traditional animal shelters and no-kill rescues in 2 different ways: 1) By providing transportation for dogs and cats from traditional shelters to no-kill rescues in Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa and many other states. We also provide foster care for those whose time has run out at the shelters but have to wait for a foster spot to open up in one of the rescues; 2) By pulling dogs out of traditional shelters that are on death row and placing them in foster homes through our organization.
Highway Hounds was founded by Susan "Tutti" Trammell in September 2019. Susan became involved in rescue in the early 90 's when working at the humane society of North Texas. She fostered many dogs and cats while working there and also area veterinary hospitals as a vet tech. She then expanded her education and became a certified animal massage therapist and then on to be certified in animal behavior.
Shen then decided to save more animals in need by starting a new rescue and transport. A rescue that would give dogs and cats a chance at a life they have always deserved. Her work in the rescue is driven by pure love and passion.
