If you love heelers, you'll like us

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.

Love the breed? Save a life. Help a heeler in need.

TCDR has so many great heelers waiting for forever 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. 

Learn how you can foster a heeler in need


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 so many easy ways to support TCDR in its mission


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.
