About Us



Since 2009, Texas Cattle Dog Rescue has rescued and rehomed hundreds of red and blue Australian Cattle Dog across the state. We are the same strong rescue group doing great work—but now we have a new website! It contains a ton of great information about the breed and how you can get involved by adopting, fostering and supporting.

Adopting A Friend

We work hard to place our dogs in permanent, loving homes and we carefully screen every adopter to ensure a perfect match. The list below contains our current adoptable dogs. Click on a dog's name to learn about their temperament, age and skills, and to see multiple photos. Some of our dogs also have videos.


Contact our adoptions manager at adopt@texascattledogrescue.com for more information.

Our adoption fee for adult dogs is $250 and for puppies is $300. Every dog adopted from Texas Cattle Dog Rescue is spayed or neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines and tested/treated for heartworms. While in foster care, our dogs are given topical flea preventative and oral heartworm preventative.

Who We Are

Texas Cattle Dog Rescue (TCDR) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization dedicated to rescuing stray and abandoned Australian Cattle Dogs and providing medical and foster care, then placing these dogs in loving and caring homes.


TCDR rescues dogs from city and county shelters throughout Texas. We find new, forever homes all across the state for our dogs.


Our mission is to reduce the shocking number of heelers euthanized in Texas shelters. We match each rescued dog with a forever home where he/she will be loved, cared for, and fully enjoyed and appreciated. Educating current and future owners is a key focus and helps us match dogs with homes. We believe pets should be spayed and neutered to reduce pet overpopulation. We also ensure our rescued dogs are healthy and vaccinated when they are placed.
