Austin Bulldog Rescue (ABR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, breed specific, English Bulldog Rescue Organization in Austin, TX. We are a volunteer run organization that relies solely on tax deductible donations to provide the much needed medical care that our rescued bulldogs require.
Federal Tax ID 46-3292327.
ABR takes in adoptable English Bulldogs from animal shelters, other rescue groups, and from owners who can no longer properly care for their English Bulldog. We provide for their medical and behavioral needs. Our intention is to make the best match, taking into consideration the Bulldog’s background and your families needs. Every Rescue Bulldog is different: personality, temperament, energy, comfort with kids and other animals, medical needs and more. We take all of these factors into consideration when making a furever-home match. We take our responsibility of finding forever homes for Rescue Bulldogs very seriously. All of our rescued dogs live with families in foster homes in Austin, Texas. We often operate statewide and occasionally take in dogs from other areas of Texas, but we primarily service the Austin/NW San Antonio area. We do not run a shelter that you can visit.
Your help counts! Your donations will help support our goals below!
We transport bulldogs from San Antonio, Houston, Waco, and San Marcos to Austin through the help of our volunteers.
We run fundraisers events and rely on donations to help pay for our medical bills.
Once they get settled in, we start matching up the bulldog to their loving home based on their unique personalities and quirks.
Our rescue bulldogs are sent home with collars, treats, food, toys, & more!
We take chances on those who have troubled background and give them a second chance at life with special training!
We listen to the Austin community to find our pups, raise funds for them to join, and restore their hope for a happy ending!
Here is a breakdown of how we budget for each bulldog below.
