The mission of LoneStar Outreach to Place Ex-Racers (Dripping Springs, Texas 78620) is to provide Texas racehorses with opportunities for new careers after their racing days end.

lope-tx-oro

We are inspired by the classical horsemanship philosophy practiced by Tom Dorrance, Ray Hunt, and all who follow in their footsteps.To borrow from Ray Hunt’s famous quote, we prepare the racehorses to be in a good position for a successful transition.

LOPE believes that every ex-racehorse is waiting to be someone’s special champion — whether as a trail horse, show competitor or just plain pet. For us, it’s an honor to work with such tremendous ex-athletes, so full of intelligence and fine bloodlines. Every horse is special to us — and we believe that every horse needs a job, a special vocation, in order to be happy and true to its nature.

At LOPE, we respect, admire and value the ex-racehorses — and we want everyone who owns one to feel that way, too.

The mission of Duck Team 6 (Dallas, Texas 75214) is to reduce the street dog population through Capture, Placement, and Outreach.

duckteam6-tx

Since 2010, we’ve captured hundreds of dogs from the streets and found permanent, loving homes for them. We rely on your support to help us continue to bring awareness to the stray, abused, neglected, and homeless dogs in the Dallas area.

Duck Team 6 captures elusive dogs that need to be rescued and off the streets. Sometimes Good Samaritans notify us about dogs that need to be rescued, and sometimes we find these dogs on our own. In many cases, they are hurt, in heat, malnourished, or in danger of being hit by oncoming traffic. A search & capture mission can take days, weeks, or even months. Whenever someone steps up and agrees to take a street dog into their home or rescue group, the Ducks will deploy!

Our Community Outreach program helps Dallas residents who are struggling to provide adequate care for their beloved pets. We work with SoupMobile to provide pet food to low-income families, and also assist with basic vet care like vaccinations and sterilization and sometimes even emergency surgery. We’ve also been able to provide dog houses and fencing for families so their pets don’t have to live on a chain.

All Border Collie Rescue (The Woodlands, Texas 77393) is a non-profit volunteer rescue organization dedicated to the rescue of Border Collies. This passionate group of Border Collie lovers has had the good fortune of meeting and befriending each other through past rescue work.  Some of our volunteers are new to working with Border Collies, while some possess over a decade of experience with Border Collies. We work extensively with many other Border Collie and all breed rescues.

All Border Collie Rescue started in November of 2008. The founder saw a need for additional funding and foster homes for rescued Border Collies and responded by obtaining non-profit status, and thus beginning ABC Rescue. In ABC’s first year, twenty five Border Collies were rescued, rehabilitated and re-homed.  In ABC’s second year, 115 Border Collies were accepted into the program, most of whom found their forever homes. In our third year (2011), ABC rescued 220 Border Collies and found homes for over 170. In 2012 we rescued over 330 Border Collies. In November of 2014 we adopted out our 1000th dog.

Our goal is to rescue, in some cases rehab, and successfully match our Border Collies to forever homes with well-matched temperament and abilities. Many of our foster homes have other dogs, cats, children and varying levels of obedience training. As a result, we make every effort to evaluate our Border Collies for compatibility in order to match the dog with the family. We believe that Border Collies with sound temperament should be given every opportunity to lead happy, healthy and fruitful lives. We also believe that rescued Border Collies are far more dependable, well adapted, wiser dogs because of their “tougher road in life” and as a result, they know they have been “saved” and have a strong desire to bond with their new families.

All Border Collie Rescue members know that it’s ALWAYS all about the dogs.

Arthur Benjamin, founder of American Dog Rescue Foundation (Dallas, Texas 75218-3423), is passionate about animal welfare – locally, nationally and globally. He is equally passionate about nurturing the involvement of others, as individuals or through the support of accredited nonprofits that use the highest percentage of funds to effect substantive rescue and advocacy outcomes.

Bruiser

To that end, his own foundation – American Dog Rescue Foundation – is an all-volunteer organization for which Arthur underwrites administrative costs. That means 100% of ADR proceeds go to animal welfare and projects to save and protect animals. Thus, contributors are assured their $5 and $10 donations, or $5,000 or $50,000 challenge grants will have maximum impact on the issues faced by ADR’s animal constituency. Most recently, the foundation’s areas of focus have been:

• Saving and expanding animal shelters

• Rescuing abandoned pets and live stock in the aftermath of recent disasters in Haiti, New Orleans and Joplin, MO.

• Providing special funding for specific animals in dire need, such as eye and heart surgeries that would be otherwise cost-prohibitive for the rescue organization or adoptive family involved.

• Closing down puppy mills nationwide

• Putting an end to the clubbing of baby seals for their pelts in Canada, Namibia, Greenland, Norway and Russia

• Saving the Canadian seal habitat, the loss of which is forcing females to abort their pups at sea

• Rescuing abandoned circus and theme park animals

• Cracking down on the inhumane practice of penning wild foxes and coyotes to be torn apart by hunting dogs

• Visiting and supporting sanctuaries and animal welfare organizations globally from China to South Africa

• Putting an end to dog fighting

• Helping Veterans with PTSD by connecting them with service dogs

Austin Dog Rescue is not a shelter, but a foster home based organization located in Austin, Texas that serves shelters throughout the Central Texas area. We rescue dogs that are at risk due to lack of space, age, health, or special needs.

austindogrescue_tx

We rely solely on volunteers, adoption fees, and donations to fulfill our mission of saving lives.  Our dogs are cared for in foster homes where they are treated as members of the family. They receive an abundance of interaction with humans and other dogs, and are house and crate trained. All medical needs are addressed before our dogs are placed in their home. We strive for careful and thoughtful placement for our dogs.

We believe that life is precious and the dogs we save deserve a second chance at finding a loving, caring home. Our foster caregivers and other volunteers are the catalyst behind giving them that chance.
