Blue Dog Rescue is a volunteer organization whose purpose is to end the needless killing of homeless dogs. In 2006, Austin killed over 12,000 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens at one area animal shelter alone. Many of them were healthy, well-behaved animals who could have made someone a wonderful pet. They were killed because there wasn’t enough room to keep them until homes could be found for them.
Blue Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, funded by donations, fundraisers, and adoption fees, that works to find permanent, loving homes for homeless dogs in the Central Texas area.
Most Blue Dogs have come from Central Texas animal shelters. Blue Dog Rescue takes only those animals who are in danger of being euthanized. In order to give these dogs a chance, we must limit the number of dogs we take from private homes because their owners no longer have time for them, are moving, etc. Blue Dog Rescue will accept animals from the public only as a last resort IF space is available in an appropriate foster home.
