2 people dogAustin Dog Rescue (ADR) has been rescuing and finding homes for homeless dogs since 2006.  In the summer of 2007 Austin Dog Rescue applied for and received their 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit status.  With our careful placement, and commitment to being our dog's lifelong advocate, we have assisted thousands of homeless dogs throughout the Central Texas.

We are an all volunteer and have no paid employees.  Austin Dog Rescue is a foster home based organization and all our dogs are housed and cared for by foster caregivers in a home setting.  We focus on the dogs that fit in to most homes and save dogs that may have medical issues other rescues are unable to help.

Austin Dog Rescue is one of the most well respected and successful mixed breed rescues in the Central Texas area and we are very proud of our accomplishments. Click here to learn more about our Adoption Program.
