Lone Star Dobermans -

Doberman Rescue of NorthTexas -

Doberman Rescue of North Texas places purebred unwanted or abandoned Doberman Pinschers in loving homes. Most of the Dobermans we rescue come from shelters in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Each dog is checked by a vet, given all shots, tested for heartworms, spayed or neutered, treated for any illnesses or medical problems that are found, and micro-chipped. Without exception, all dogs are spayed or neutered before they are adopted out. The dogs come to live at Doberhaus, our Doberman-only private shelter in Grand Prairie. Doberhaus accommodates up to 22 dogs in 11 air-conditioned and heated runs with comfortable beds and classical music. There are outdoor play yards where they exercise, sunbathe, chase squirrels and rabbits, and do other important doggy activities. Puppies thru mature are normally available

North Texas Samoyed Rescue, Inc. -

North Texas Samoyed Rescue, Inc. (NTSRI) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) (tax-exempt) corporation, based in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, formed by a dedicated group of individuals who love animals in general and the Samoyed breed in particular. Individual contributors to NTSRI's efforts have been actively involved animal rescue work for over 30 years. 

It is estimated that more than 250 Samoyeds have been rescued by NTSRI since the first one was rescued (before NTSRI was formed) in 1981.

Rescued Samoyeds find their way to NTSRI from many sources, primarily through cooperation with local animal shelters and owner surrenders.  On arrival to the group, the dogs are examined by a veterinarian and treated for heartworms or other health problems, as well as spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

NTSRI secures volunteer foster homes for newly arrived rescues and ensures that the rescued Samoyed is cared for until such time as a "forever home" is found.  It is a labor of pure love, since these volunteers receive no compensation (other than reimbursement of veterinary expenses, subject to availability of funds) and often spend considerable amounts of money out of their own pockets. Foster families also evaluate the rescued Samoyed's behavior traits and use positive reinforcement training when necessary

Texas Lab Rescue -

Texas Labrador Retriever Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose mission is to decrease the overpopulation and euthanasia of Labrador Retrievers in Texas and place rescued animals into responsible, loving homes.  TLRRI is operated solely by volunteers. We rescue purebred Labrador Retrievers from shelters and place them into responsible and loving homes. Our foster homes are located in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex area.  We do not have a facility.
