Our Mission

Texas Cattle Dog Rescue (TCDR) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization dedicated to rescuing Australian Cattle Dogs from city and county shelters throughout Texas. We ensure each dog is spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. We do not have a central facility nor do we have dogs in kennels or boarding facilities. All of our dogs live in foster homes. We thoroughly screen potential adopters and work hard to place each dog in loving, caring forever home.

Our small, but dedicated group focuses on saving as many dogs as possible as well as educating the public about Australian Cattle Dogs. Everyone involved in the group is an unpaid volunteer.

Our mission is to reduce the shocking number of heelers euthanized in Texas shelters. We match each rescued dog with a forever home where he/she will be loved, cared for, and fully enjoyed and appreciated. Educating current and future owners is a key focus and helps us match dogs with homes. We believe pets should be spayed and neutered to reduce pet over population. We also ensure our rescued dogs are healthy and vaccinated when they are placed.

Adoption Policy

We work hard to place our dogs in permanent, loving homes and we carefully screen every adopter to ensure a perfect match. The list below contains our current adoptable dogs.
