AUSTIN DOG RESCUE
November 15, 2012

I found out about Austin Dog Rescue (ADR) through a local Austin business, Mudpuppies, that I had been using to board my dogs for a number of years. Austin Dog Rescue (ADR) takes dogs that are older/senior, need some pretty serious rehabilitation, and most likely would not be adopted from a local shelter. They foster these dogs until they are adopted, once they commit to that dog they keep the dog indefinitely. I adopted a special case, Charlie, who had been with ADR for quite some time and had lived at a variety of foster homes within the ADR network. I have kept in touch with Charlie's foster mom, Amber, who had Charlie for 8 months. I see the good work Amber does through her pictures, facebook pages, and also by visiting her at the dog park or by bringing my dogs to visit to help rehab her current foster animal. I also see how Mudpuppies helps out by using their network of customers to try to help find homes for available animals. Austin Dog Rescue does such a good job with taking on these animals and making them adoptable. I am not sure if other adopters have kept in touch with ADR or with the foster parent who kept their adopted dog, but I think it has been wonderful to do so. Though Charlie still has some challenges, he is a wonderful dog who is loving and sweet and I wouldn't give him up for the world. ADR does a wonderful job! I wish I could adopt all of the dogs!
