For the month of August, during the “dog days of summer,” Asher Gallery will collect needed supplies for Corridor Rescue. This nonprofit organization has a mission to save lives and correct the injustice to animals who have been thrown away and left, often times injured and starving, to fend for themselves in the I-59 and Little York area of Houston, also known as the “Corridor of Cruelty.” Through feeding stations, flea/tick applications, and rescues, Corridor Rescue works hard to create a better life for hundreds of dogs each year.

To show our appreciation, anyone who brings in any of the items listed below will receive an Asher Gallery gift certificate for $15.00, plus a raffle ticket to win one of several pieces of original artwork by Asher artists.

Pet Supplies Needed

  • Wet and dry dog and cat food, any brand (no opened bags)
  • Collars and leashes
  • Travel crates and wire kennels
  • New or gently used toys and dog beds
  • Flea and heartworm control medications
  • Leftover antibiotics
  • Puppy pads
  • Puppy chew toys

A Personal Story from Suzanne Sippel:

It’s been two years now since many of you first saw the Baron von Ohren in our e-newsletter. We weren’t looking for a dog, however one day this small, skin and bones boxhuahua puppy moved onto our porch and into our hearts. I’m happy to report our underfed street pup grew healthy and very happy, though never very big. Last year, we brought the Tsarina Usheovna into our home, too, ensuring she would never have a difficult life. (Lo, but she brought some difficulty to ours, ha ha!) She had been passed around a few homes, with each situation not working out. Thanks to our neighbor, we became the last stop in her travels. With her, our family is now complete. After a day at HCCC, there is nothing better than to sit in my backyard, enjoying the summer and watching my dogs romp around.

And, that’s how it should be. But for too many dogs in Houston, this is a far cry from the life they lead. When I hear their stories, I pull my puppies closer and give thanks that they are with us, both cared for and loved. That’s why Asher Gallery decided to spotlight Corridor Rescue, an organization doing their best to improve the lives of homeless dogs on the northeast side of Houston. It’s my hope that one day, with the work of groups such as Corridor Rescue, that every dog will be treated with respect and love.
