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

I am a dog trainer and I greatly discount my services and donate my time to Austin Dog Rescue. Every dog that I have ever had the pleasure of training for Austin Dog Rescue has been well worth my effort. The dogs are cared for by their fosters with the upmost attention and love, and then are adopted out to wonderful homes where they are spoiled for life. I have worked with other organizations, but Austin Dog Rescue is by far the most organized dog rescue that I have worked with.

ADR really goes the extra mile to help dogs. If they get a dog that is a bit too hyper or that needs some manners training, they send them to me. It speaks very highly of an organization when they are willing to invest their time and resources into dog training. The effort that they put through the rescue and foster process has a lifetime effect on the dog's happiness, confidence, and quality of life.

I will continue to support Austin Dog Rescue and will always recommend to friends and colleagues to do the same!

My name is Carrie Rendon, and I am a huge animal lover. I try to donate best I can and would foster or adopt more animals ( especially dogs) if my neighborhood association would allow more than the 3 I already have. I admire and appreciate the hard work and dedication Austin Dog Rescue puts in to taking care of these sweet fur babies. Everyone takes a part in each and every dogs well being and works as a team to make sure they get the best care and chance for a healthy life and forever home they possibly can!
ADR loves these fur babies with the same unconditional love they receive from the babies in need! They nurture them back to health or just give them the chance they deserve by using every resource they have to make sure these babies have food, shelter, medical care and love! But most of all are very particular about paring these babies with a new forever home!
I encourage anyone who can help in any way possible to please donate, foster, volunteer, and most of all ADOPT if you can!! I am simply amazed at the hearts and souls of these people, Anne Ford, Edward Flores and Kickie Morris to name a few, that dedicate every single day to caring for and helping these babies when others abuse and neglect. EVERY DONATION SAVES LIVES! NOTHING IS TOO SMALL!. ADR takes in our fur babies when no one else will take on hospital and vet bills that are every costly!
Thank you ADR! You are ALL amazing and HEROES in my eyes!! I plan to continue to help as long as I can, when I can, however I can!!! I hope others do too!!!

I cannot say enough good things about the wonderful people of Austin Dog Rescue! This is a first rate and well run rescue organization that helps save many senior, sick or injured dogs in the Austin Metro area. They often help those dogs who would not have a second chance without ADR's tireless dedication to rehabilitating them and helping them find a loving new forever home. I have always had such good experiences myself and great feedback from others who have worked with, fostered for or adopted from Austin Dog Rescue - that my own organizations confidently selected ADR as one of our Top 10 local rescue groups to recognize and help fundraise for each year at our local events. Kudos to Joyce, Edward, Anne, Liz and all the other ADR Board members and volunteers for always being such wonderful advocates for the homeless dogs of Central Texas!
