With the holidays looming and the likelihood that a pet might be brought into your household as a wonderful addition to your family, we wanted to take a moment to highlight some wonderful shelters and rescues that are making sure formerly-loved dogs are finding forever homes with new owners. If you happen to be in the market, maybe consider checking out some of these places here in Texas.

This dog here, known as “Slash,” was adopted from the Texas Cattle Dog Rescue after being rescued from a shelter where he had been picked up as a stray, with a large gash in his chest. The TCDR repaired his wounds and healed him up, not to mention, found him a great new home. And, they do this for a number of great pooches just like him! Their website explains that TCDR is “…a non-profit, 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization dedicated to rescuing Australian Cattle Dogs from city and county shelters throughout Texas.”
