Tess’ K9 Rescue is a privately funded non-profit rescue that tries to save dogs from certain death in high kill pounds. Most of our animals come from some of the small towns surrounding San Antonio that rarely get help in saving the poor homeless dogs and cats that have been impounded there as well as S.A.
Tess’K9 Rescue not a shelter which opens and closes so we do not have visiting hours.
We are a rescue, which consists of private foster homes that care for these dogs.
Our staff consists of friends and family, all volunteers who receive no form of payment.
All rescued puppies and dogs are vaccinated, de-wormed, spayed/neutered
(if old enough), and microchipped.
They are socialized with other dogs and handled by our volunteers.
When you adopt a rescued dog you help save two lives, the one you adopted and the next one you just made room for in the rescue.
Our wonderful, loving puppies and dogs need permanent homes and families. They crave a sense of belonging somewhere and need the security of knowing they will never have to be homeless and hungry again.
Please help us make a difference by
"Saving lives one dog at a time".
1. Submit Application
You must fill out a Tess K9 Rescue application. The link is below.
2. Approve Application
We contact your vet, landlord if applicable and 3 references so please authorize all parties to speak with us. Home checks
3. Sign Adoption Contract
You must be at least 21 years of age to adopt a pet from us. We do not make appointments to meet with anyone prior to the completion of an application. The reason for this is simple: If our basic requirements for adoption are not met, there is no point in meeting the pet. Our adoptive process
is the best way we have of making the best possible match of pet to person. When you find a pet you are interested in please contact us at: Tessk9rescue@yahoo.com or fill out the application on line with this linkhttps://form.jotform.com/81477238784167 After verification of the information on the application, we can get the puppy or dog ready for transport. We will provide the new adoptive family with the dog's adoption certificate, health records/shot records including rabies certificate(if old enough), spay/neuter records (if completed), microchipping as well as other necessary forms. Adoption fees are due before we can book the transport. We really enjoy getting emails with pics and updates about our adopted pups. We love to hear how they are doing in their new homes. Again, our goal is to find good, permanent, responsible, loving homes for these puppies and dogs while providing wonderful companions to those who seek them. Although our adoptive process may sound like "jumping through hoops" to some people, many rescued dogs have been bounced around for much of their lives, prior to being rescued. It is our utmost goal to ensure that a pet's adoptive family will be truly be his or her "forever" home and, our process is designed to ensure this, by trying to make the best possible match of pet to person. We are looking for forever homes for our pets where they will be a loved member of the family, living inside with their family, not relegated to a backyard. All fees and donations are applied directly to the care of the dogs in the Rescue. Our staff are all volunteers and receive no form of payment. As previously stated, we do not receive any outside funding and rely strictly on our own finances and the generosity of caring people. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated.
