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.

Say hello to Shirley the Shepherd! This beautiful girl was found as an injured stray in the extreme Texas heat. She quickly bonded with her finder’s own group of dogs. She loves dogs of all sizes and she is gentle enough to hang out with the older ones and not annoy them. She knows sit, shake, and working on down. She is crate and house trained. She is a very soft, gentle girl who would be a great family dog or sidekick for a special person. She loves to cuddle on the couch or lay in the pool outside.

She is currently going through heartworm treatment but is available for pre-adoption. Apply to learn more about this special lady.
