Giving Australian Cattle Dogs a Second Chance
Rescuing and rehoming heelers in Texas
Since 2009, Texas Cattle Dog Rescue has saved more than 1000 Australian Cattle Dogs (also known as ACDs or red and blue heelers). TCDR is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization dedicated to rescuing stray and abandoned heelers, providing medical and foster care, then placing these dogs in loving and caring homes.
Young or old, red or blue, long or docked tails, male or female. We have many dogs looking for their own fresh starts with families who will love and keep them forever. See some of our great dogs and learn how you can adopt.
TCDR dogs live in foster homes, not kennels or boarding facilities. In these temporary homes, dogs are prepared for their new start in life. The more foster homes we have, the more dogs we are able to save.
There are many ways to help this wonderful breed. Donate, take advantage of employer matching funds, shop on Amazon or your favorite stores, purchase wish list supplies, transport, sponsor, or buy a shirt or calendar.
Donations of any amount are gladly accepted and help defray the cost of veterinary care and supplies.
