TIRR, a 501c3 charity, has been accepted into the Amazon Smile charitable giving program. Simply sign into Amazon Smile, instead of the regular Amazon website. You then choose Texas Independent Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue as your charity of choice.

Then whenever you shop at Amazon, just go through Smile instead and many/most of your purchases will be eligible for a donation to TIRR. Amazon Smile donates a portion of the sales to your chosen charity, and does not charge you for this. The more people who choose to shop via Smile, the more funds TIRR receives. This helps them out more than you can imagine.

You can continue to help support TIRR with the Kroger Community Rewards program. If you already participate, don't forget to check the bottom of your Kroger receipt to make sure it still says you are donating to Texas Independent Ridgeback (TIRR) Rescue. Our Kroger number is #37500.

Who We Are

Texas Independent Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue is an independent organization that seeks to rescue and place lost and unwanted Ridgebacks and Ridgeback mixes.

Foster Program

Want to help out? Have you considered joining our Foster Program? TIRR Rescue prefers to foster in-house as much as possible. We do have and do take in from time to time rescue dogs that need special care that can only come from one-on-one attention and love. Foster homes are always welcome for these types of care needs. Foster Parents will be screened at the same level as our permanent adoptive homes. If you have a passion for caring for dogs in need and feel you can pass the screening criteria, please call or email us for details! Phone: 817-454-6023
Email: tirrrescue@gmail.com

Doggy Wish List

Can't foster or adopt? You can still help a dog in need! TIRR has certain ongoing needs for the dogs, and you can help! Here's how--just donate from the Doggy Wish List. Just call or email us for information on how to drop off your donation.
Items needed on a regular basis are; dry dog chow, Gun Dog House Doors, XL dog crates & trays, dog shampoo, bleach, Greenies, tennis balls, sheets, washcloths, towels, laundry and dishwashing soap, contractor size trashbags etc.

Adopting a friend

Our adoption process includes an application, references, home visit and adoption fee. Preference is given to homes in the D/FW area, however if a home visit can be arranged, placement may be approved for areas outside the metroplex and/or state. Our goal is to match families to canine friends. An application will not be approved if the foster family does not agree that the dog and family are a match. The ultimate goal is for the new home to be the "forever home" for the rescued dog. The adoption of a rescue dog from TIRR requires a lifetime commitment from the family. Each dog is current on all vaccinations and shots, have been altered and are on heartworm preventative and flea/tick preventative. The adoption fee is normally $150-$250 which covers shots, other medical costs and spay/neuter. In specific cases the fee may be different dependent upon the actual costs incurred.
