Austin Dog Rescue is foster home-based rescue organization and is ran strictly by an all volunteer staff. All of our dogs live in homes with a family. Because of the number of inquiries we receive each day, you must submit an application and be preliminarily approved before meeting our dogs.

We cannot guarantee that the dog you are interested in adopting or will submit an application to adopt will be available upon completion and approval of your application. We process applications on a first come first served basis but we do NOT place our dogs based on this system. The dog you applied for may have multiple applications and our primary goal is to make the best match for you and for our dogs. Placement is at our discretion.

You will be contact within 24 hours by our Adoption Coordinator
- The speed of which your application is processed and completed depends solely on the accuracy and information you provide.

Things we verify:
- Your residence - if you lease your home you must provide proof/approval you may have a dog and note any size or breed restrictions.
- Perform a veterinary check on current and previous dogs.
- If you do not provide accurate information on your application, this will delay approval.

Once residence and veterinary informaton is verified, you will be put in contact with the foster caregiver, and they will arrange a time for you (and your dog) to meet their foster dog.

After meeting the dog, you and the foster have 24 hours consider if the dog is the right match for you.
