Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: 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.

Results: We have saved and found homes for over 1880 dogs.

Target demographics: homeless shelter dogs regain their health and overall well-being.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 400 dogs find their forever home.

Geographic areas served: Austin, Texas
