Austin Dog Rescue is made up purely of volunteers. Each dog is sheltered within a home in the Austin area. As such, there is no physical shelter to visit the dog at. If you think you may be interested in a particular dog now or in the future, please fill out an application form. People with approved application forms are prioritized over people who haven’t yet applied.

Hello! My name’s Chance. I’m a ridgeback mix looking for a family to go on adventures with.

My foster mom yells at me all the time while I try marking my territory but I promise I keep it outside. I love my crate, love to eat. Keep things clean and love to cuddle. My favorite hobby is scratches with my foster.

I’m a pretty easy going fella, but I do have one thing to discuss before you jump on board with adoptions. Well I guess 2.

  1. I hate cats, birds and other small mammals. I love dogs and would love a play mate but that’s all I can handle. 
  2. I’m heartworm positive. We tried killing them with a quicker option but I am not a huge fan of sitting still while a bunch of strangers are poking me so we are going to kill them slowly. Don’t worry though! The rescue I’m with is helping assure I’m treated right. In the meantime I’m allowed to find my forever home!

If I sound like the best dog for your family, please fill out an application. I can’t wait to meet you!
