Mend a heart. Make a friend.

Our mission is to place homeless shelties into forever homes with loving families. Since January 1, 2006 we have rescued over 400 shelties from local shelters, surrendered from owners, and found as strays. We have been able to do this because of the wonderful network of volunteers that help us with rescuing, transporting, fostering, nurturing, healing and providing loving and caring homes. Check our our adoptable shelties, or fill out an application to express your interest in a future available sheltie.

Testimonials

Karen P

I had a great experience adopting Poppi* from Austin Sheltie Rescue. I had recently lost a dog to an illness and Glenda and Sunne understood the trauma and joy that comes with the transition to a new pet. They were kind and patient with me, but also protective of Poppi.

I adopted my perfect angel, Penny, from Austin Sheltie Rescue and it was a fantastic experience. Sunni made sure that I could adequately care for a pet and ensured that Penny would be going to a good home. The organization was prompt and professional and I’d recommend them to anyone!
