Austin Dog Rescue is the kind of rescue that does not turn away a dog in need of medical care. In 2012 Austin Dog Rescue saved 201 dogs. In 2013 Austin Dog Rescue saved 392. Looking ahead for this year, we hope to be able to save even more.
When you increase your intake, you also increase the possibility of saving dogs that have greater medical needs. Dogs hit by cars with broken limbs, dogs who have been medically neglected, dogs who have been emotionally neglected, and those who have suffered at the hands of cruelty.
Austin Dog Rescue is not a shelter, but a foster home based organization located in Austin, Texas that serves shelters throughout the Central Texas area. We rescue dogs that are at risk due to lack of space, age, health, or special needs.
We rely solely on volunteers, adoption fees, and donations to fulfill our mission of saving lives. Our dogs are cared for in foster homes where they are treated as members of the family. They receive an abundance of interaction with humans and other dogs, and are house and crate trained. All medical needs are addressed before our dogs are placed in their home. We strive for careful and thoughtful placement for our dogs.
We believe that life is precious and the dogs we save deserve a second chance at finding a loving, caring home. Our foster caregivers and other volunteers are the catalyst behind giving them that chance.
Austin Dog Rescue is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization.
