Our Featured Pet...


Dixie is an approximately ten year old female Miniature Schnauzer, white with cropped ears and a docked tail. Dixie was in an area kill shelter, and her time had run out. The shelter called all the rescue groups they could trying to find someone to take her. But many passed because they thought she was too old to adopt out. But we love old dogs, and wanted to help Dixie!

Dixie is a funny girl. She is happy and can be playful. But when you look at her, she looks stern because of a significant under bite. She is a senior dog, so would probably do best in a home without children. Dixie has been neat in her crate at the vet's office, so we believe she may be housetrained. She did have a fatty tumor on the inside of her arm, but the vet removed it. Dixie appears tall because her skirt was shaved off due to matting. But she is average size for a Schnauzer, weighing about 17 lbs. Dixie seems to get along with people and other dogs, and will make a great companion. Won't you consider giving Dixie a loving forever home?


HELP! We can always use help. Monetary donations and donations of food and supplies are an ongoing necessity. Our program is funded entirely through adoption fees, contributions from our foster homes and donations. We realize that most people can't bring stray dogs into their homes (usually their other pets don't want any part of that). But you can still help by making contributions.... food, money or supplies!

General donations may be made electronically through PayPal by clicking the button below:

While food and supplies must be delivered, please e-mail us to make arrangements. Monetary donations can also be mailed to us:

Who We Are

All About Animals Rescue, Inc. was created in the fall of 2004 by Caroline Nolan, who had been rescuing Miniature Schnauzers for seven years. Though she still maintains and operates Schnauzer Rescue of Tulsa, Ms. Nolan wanted to be able to help more that just one breed when she could. It's not surprising that most of the animals rescued by All About Animals Rescue tend to be Miniature Schnauzers, but you will occasionally see some other breeds, mixed breeds, cats, birds, guinea pigs, rabbits, etc. available for adoption.

Schnauzer Rescue of Tulsa started operation in October 1996 in order to stop the needless euthanasia of Schnauzers. Starting primarily in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, area, we quickly discovered that there was a broad regional need for rescuers for Schnauzers. Unfortunately, we are still the only breed specific rescue for Schnauzers within a three hour drive of Tulsa. Our task is overwhelming, as puppy mills have grossly over-bred Miniature Schnauzers and the ignorance of backyard breeders routinely adds to the problem.

All About Animals Rescue fosters primarily Miniature Schnauzers, and helps network to find homes for any animals they can. Some of our animals come from area shelters (the pound) while others are found stray and some are turned over to us from owners.

We have rescued hundreds of animals. These have ranged in age from newborns to 16 years. We do not discriminate against animals because of age or medical conditions. But we are limited in the numbers we can help at any one time. Our foster homes stay full almost all the time, but there always seem to be more that need our help.

Adopting a friend

If interested in adopting one of our loving pets, please contact us by e-mail. It is far more efficient than phone calls. When contacting us, please indicate where you are located. We receive lots of e-mail, and are less likely to return yours if we do not know where you are.

We DO NOT SHIP animals, as this is cruel. Adopting families are required to pick-up animals in person.

Our adoption fees vary per dog, but are usually between $100 to $300 per animal for our dogs. Any other animals we may be trying to place will have an adoption fee comparable to what the national rescues charge for that breed. We usually charge lower adoption fees for dogs 10 years and older. Each dog will have specific requirements for adoption, which we will try to note in the description. If no requirements are present, it is usually because the dog is so new to the program that we have not yet assessed them.

We prefer to place animals in the Tulsa metro area, but will adopt out-of-state. Those applying long distance must be willing to act quickly and must demonstrate a true desire to adopt to help the animal, not just because it will be the perfect pet for what they have in mind.

An adoption application is required and must be approved before an animal is released into the care of an adopter. All adoption fees are paid at the time of adoption.

We do not adopt animals "on approval" or allow adopters to "try out" an animal. We expect those wanting to adopt to enter an adoption with the mindset that they want to help this animal and that they will work with the animal to help it assimilate into its new environment.

We are aware, however, that occasionally the fit is not right. Should this occur, we will refund your adoption fee or find a more appropriate animal for you provided this is deteremined within the first 30 days of adoption. It is important, should you be experiencing problems with your new adopted animal, that you keep in contact with All About Animals Rescue. We can often provide helpful tips and support for you and your new pet.

Come Visit Us!

All About Animals Rescue, Inc. exists entirely out of foster homes, so we do not have a physical location for you to view all of our animals. If you are interested in meeting one of our deserving pets, please e-mail us.
