About Us


Check out the detailed profiles for our available dogs at www.albertaherdingdogrescue.com  

Each dog in foster care has their own picture album with a more detailed write up on their history as we know it, the behaviours that we are seeing in foster care and the type of home we think would best suit them.

Adopting A Friend

If you are interested in one of our dogs, please email us for an adoption questionnaire.  This must be filled out as completely and truthfully as possible and include references.

We will consider long distance adoptions but we will not ship our dogs to people or places unknown.  We require that adopters travel to meet our dogs, once all steps of the process have been completed. 

Who We Are

We are a small, nationally registered Not-for-Profit organization based out of Alberta, Canada.  Our main source of funding is by donation, from friends and family, or from hosting small agility trials or herding clinics.  Regretfully, we are not (yet) a registered charity so we cannot issue tax receipts.

Our volunteer network is small and knowledgeable foster homes are hard to come by.  The status of these resources at any given time dictate the number of dogs we can help out.

We would appreciate your support, either by direct donation through PayPal or through our GoFundMe Wish List campaign (https://www.gofundme.com/AB-HerdingDogRescue).

We would rather spend time helping our dogs become better pets than bombard you with soliciting emails or facebook messages.  So any donation amount, any time is greatly appreciated.

Come Visit Us

AB-HDR is located approximately 1.5 hours NW of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

We are not a shelter with regular office or store hours.  Although many of our dogs are located at Cavorting K9s Retreat, all our dogs are fostered in private homes.  All visits are by appointment with the foster family.
