Our Featured Pets

We've recently updated our pet of the month with Tulip & Honey . They each need a family to keep them company and give them all the love and attention they need/deserve. If you're interested in Adopting either of the two or maybe both, please refer to the adoption application on our website and submit it to the address indicated. WWW.TipofTexK9Rescue.Org


With the launching of our new website, you’ll see a link for “Referral Dogs”, that section has been made available to allow anyone who currently has pets that are available for adoption but are still with the original owners/rescuers. If you’re interested in listing your pet, please send a picture and detailed info on your pet (i.e. Age, sex, special needs if any, breed if known, and restrictions if any). Send all listings to Webmaster@TipofTexK9Rescue.Org All listings without info will NOT be posted, so do not forget to include all pertinent information on your friend.


We've recently added an Urgent section to our website, this will allow us to put up the most critical cases, or animals that have recently become available for adoption. We always have several dogs that urgently need to find a forever home. Please visit www.TipofTexK9Rescue.Org for more information. We are currently looking for foster families in the Rio Grande Valley area. Please contact us directly if you're interested in learning more about our foster care program. We would also like volunteers in helping with transport and or communicating with local shelters. Any help is greatly appreciated, and as always thank you for your continuous Support!


Who We Are

Tip of Tex K-9 Rescue is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) association that receives no outside funding. It is managed on a daily basis by one person with the help several generous foster homes. Tax-deductible donations of cash, food and wish list items are always needed and greatly appreciated. Tip of Tex K-9 Rescue is dedicated to rescuing dogs and placing them in loving homes. The main focus of our program is spay or neuter of every animal prior to placement. We are dedicated in our efforts to save animals from pounds, which may not otherwise be placed for adoption. Tip of Tex K-9 Rescue is a no kill rescue and will not euthanize any animal because it cannot find a home. When a dog is not adoptable, and after we've exhausted all possibilities of finding the dog a loving home... he or she will live out his/her life in our facility.

Adopting a friend

Our foster care and adoption programs are the cornerstones of our organization. We bring homeless dogs into the homes of our foster care volunteers, where they are loved and cared for until they can be placed in permanent homes. This unique approach allows us to provide very personalized care to each dog. Veterinary care is provided, as well as training and socialization. Our adoptions are 100% totally guaranteed. If for any reason you are unhappy with the pet or if you can no longer care for the pet please return that pet back to Tip of Tex K 9 Rescue. We will always attempt to match the right pet with the right person or family. We want every pet to go to a FOREVER home with a wonderful caring family who will be responsible pet owners. In the event that Tip of Tex K-9 Rescue feels that the dog is not being cared for or adequately provided for, we will terminate any adoption contract, and retrieve the dog.
