RanchDog Rescue IS IN NO WAY RELATED TO ROYAL RANCH DOG RESCUE! It has come to our attention that this other "rescue" has been fraudulently collecting donations.
RanchDog Rescue is no longer taking in dogs. This has been an extremely difficult decision but we feel strongly that we can have a much larger impact by striving to keep animals out of shelters and rescues to begin with through education, motivation and assistance. WE WILL ALWAYS BE HERE TO TAKE IN DOGS WHO HAVE PREVIOUSLY BEEN ADOPTED FROM US! Our new venture will be called Adopt Love, and if we might be able to help you solve issues that allow you to keep your dog(s), please feel free to contact us. You may feel free to post dogs needing homes on our RanchDog Rescue Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/pages/RanchDog-Rescue/212814152119943
We still have several GREAT dogs waiting patiently for their wonderful forever homes!
RanchDog Rescue is a small farm and family near Azle, Texas dedicated to saving ranchdogs of all kinds from euthanasia. Our rescue dogs come from shelters, and occasionally from individuals who can no longer keep their dogs and come to us as a last resort. We specialize in Australian Cattle Dogs (Blue/Red Heelers), Australian Shepherds, and Border Collies. We have only a small number of rescue dogs at any time so that we can give each dog the individual attention and training they need. Our rescue dogs live in a family environment while they are with us. They are not kept in kennels or runs, but play outdoors in the large fenced yard, and are in the house at night and when the weather is very hot or cold.
After several years of fostering dogs for local shelters, we officially began RanchDog Rescue in memory and honor of our beloved dog Rodeo,(photo below) who taught us that there are many extraordinary dogs in shelters across America.
It's a heartbreaking fact that the majority of these wonderful, intelligent dogs never make it out of the shelters alive.
"The Animals' Savior"
I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter...the cast-offs of human society.
I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.
And I was angry.
"God" I said, "this is terrible! Why don't You do something?"
God was silent for a moment, and then He spoke softly.
"I have done something"
He replied, "I created You."
