Austin Dog Rescue is made up purely of volunteers. Each dog is sheltered within a home in the Austin area. As such, there is no physical shelter to visit the dog at. If you think you may be interested in a particular dog now or in the future, please fill out an application form. People with approved application forms are prioritized over people who haven’t yet applied.

Moonshine (UPDATED!)

Minimum Donation: $190 190 $


World meet Moonshine. Moonshine meet world.

This sweet boy came to us back in March of 2018, high heartworm positive. He went through treatment and is now ready for his forever home.

What is he looking for?

  • Someone who understands hounds and their quirky personalities.
  • Someone who doesn’t need personal space.
  •  Someone who doesn’t need a dog that will go everywhere with them (Moonshine is a bit of an anxious dog in public situations so ideal home just wants a boy who gets his exercise in the backyard and stimulates his mind with learning new tricks).
  • Someone who has another dog (preferably female or a male who is ok with having his personal space invaded).

What you get when you adopt Moonshine?

  • One fiercely loyal companion.
  • One hot box blanket dog.
  • One friend to read or watch tv with you.
  • One lovable pet that will always be by your side ready for more love and attention.
  • One crate trained pup.
  • One housetrained pup.
  • One barker who will assure no animals invade his yard.
  • One amazing dog.

Why are you waiting? This boy is amazing! Apply today, and meet him soon!
