AB Herding Dog Rescue

Didsbury, AB

Our Mission

We are a small, nationally registered not-for-profit group, based out of Alberta, set up to rescue, rehabilitate, re-train & re-home herding breed dogs. We try to find working homes for those dogs who have the instinct to herd livestock, pet or sport homes for those who do not show instinct & generally active adopters who can meet the physical & mental needs of each particular dog.

Adoption Policy

If you are interested in one of our dogs, please email us for an adoption questionnaire.  This must be filled out as completely and truthfully as possible and include references.


We will consider long distance adoptions but we will not ship our dogs to people or places unknown.  We require that adopters travel to meet our dogs, once all steps of the process have been completed. 


AB-HDR is located approximately 1.5 hours NW of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.


We are not a shelter with regular office or store hours.  Although many of our dogs are located at Cavorting K9s Retreat, all our dogs are fostered in private homes.  All visits are by appointment with the foster family.
