Mission Statement

Blue Dog Rescue is committed to providing charitable services for the care, relocation, and adoption of abandoned dogs in the Williamson and Travis county areas.

Description

There is a gross overpopulation of dogs within our community due to irresponsible pet breeding. Because their lives are often undervalued, many dogs end up in area shelters and are ultimately killed. Blue Dog Rescue takes in adoptable dogs from the area shelters and fosters them in volunteer foster homes. By fostering dogs in our homes we are able to save lives and provide the public with healthy spayed or neutered dogs. The foster home provides a transition period between life in the animal shelter and its new, permanent home. The dogs are given the opportunity to learn any needed social skills and to receive the much needed love, shelter, and medical care they deserve. When a dog is rescued from the animal shelter it receives a health exam by a veterinarian, the vaccinations appropriate for its age, and a heartworm test and preventative. All dogs of 6 months of age or older are spayed or neutered. Dogs under 6 months of age are adopted under the agreement that they will be spayed or neutered at the appropriate time.
