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.

HI! My name is "Gretchen, SIT"! I hear that a lot before I am allowed out of my crate or out into the backyard. I haven’t met a dog or person I don’t like. I am a German Shepherd puppy that has a lot of energy. I am really smart and will need training. I might eventually be a great running partner, but I won’t be ready until I have developed more at after I am a year old. If you think you would like lots of puppy energy and an active companion, I would love to meet you.
