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

Our veterinary clinic provides medical services for the animals that are brought in to the rescue and we have always been impressed by their commitment to quality care for them. Many of the animals that come straight from the shelter are not in the best condition and some need extensive treatment or surgery. Many other rescues would not even consider saving these animals but not ADR, they go above and beyond to make sure all the dogs they adopt are healthy physically and mentally. We have enjoyed working with them so much one staff member has adopted a dog from them and they've even recruited a few fosters!
