Catahoula Rescue Southeast


(Please reload frequently for new changes and updates-Petfinder stores pages so updates might not change without refreshing)

Catahoula Rescue Southeast is not a shelter and we are not located in one location, we are a nation-wide rescue with foster homes all over Florida, Georgia & other states.


We are a national 501c3 non-profit rescue comprised of volunteers all over the United States and Canada that place Catahoula Leopard Dogs and mixes into loving, caring, and permanent homes. These dogs come from high kill shelters and we do our best to save them all, but because of over population and back yard breeders, we will never be able to keep up. The good news is, we will never give up either. We need Fosters and Volunteers, every hand counts in saving lives! Scroll down to look at our pet list below and PLEASE save a life today.


People wishing to adopt a dog through Catahoula Rescue Southeast must first complete an Adoption Application. The Application is long because we like to ensure we place our dogs with the right family. Please answer all the questions, otherwise it will hold up the application process. We do reserve the right to deny anyone for any reason. When the adoption application is complete the Rescue Representative will review the application, call all references, discuss parts of your answers with you, and arrange for a home visit during the application approval process. After you have completed the application and submitted it, please be patient--it may be several days before you hear back from a representative. Most CRI Volunteers have jobs during the day, as well as families and their own dogs to tend to in the evenings. This is a labor of love for us all, and we work very hard to respond as quickly as possible to potential adopters.


Although CRI SE charges an adoption fee for Catahoulas we place in new homes, this is never enough to cover our expenses. Ordinary vet costs (vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm test, and preventative, etc.) often exceed adoption fees, and we never recoup the day-to-day, miscellaneous expenses of housing foster dogs. When we commit to a dog that requires special care or surgery, these costs can become exorbitant. Sometimes foster space isn't available, and we may need to board a dog temporarily. All of these costs quickly add up. We need your help to be able to provide the best care possible for homeless Catahoulas. Giving a donation to our organization not only helps pay for ordinary expenses, but also helps us with our many extraordinary expenses. This donation is tax deductible too!! You can also Sponsor A Dog! Many people are unable to foster a dog but would like to help. There is no better way of helping than to sponsor a dog. Your donations will help with the care of "your" dog! Should the donation exceed the dogs expenses the remainder will be put into the General Fund to help other Catahoulas that may need it.


Adopt the dog named the most versatile dog in the United States of America. We have no shelter, all dogs are in foster care in private homes or are URGENT in shelters and are very short on time.

"We Are Rescue"

Until you have held a tiny puppy in your arms as it kissed your face with slobbery puppy breath and felt the love,

Until you have held an injured or severely ill dog in your arms and felt their pain,
Until you have looked into the eyes of a tired aging senior dog and felt their wisdom,
And until you have seen and understood the look in your dogs eyes that tell you their time on earth with you is over .... and you humanely let them go,
You will never understand the life of a rescuer.
We find beauty in the most incomprehensible places and the otherwise homely faces. It is our gift to see beyond the dirt, terror, sadness and defeat and find the true soul that lies within.
We Are Rescue
