Our Mission

The mission of Texas Sporting Breed Rescue, Inc. (TSBR) is to provide for the welfare, shelter, and adoption of lost, abandoned, neglected, or homeless dogs and puppies, specifically; The American Kennel Club (AKC) 30 defined sporting group breeds - Retrievers, Setters, Pointers, Spaniels, Vizslas, Weimaraners, and Spinone Italianos; to promote the responsible care of companion animals, to actively promote spaying and neutering as the most humane means of animal control; to support heartworm education and treatment; and to provide training and education to the public related to topics such as animal welfare, responsible dog ownership, and breed information.


 
#WrappingforRescue

It's Wrapping for Rescue Time!

Volunteers needed to wrap gifts!

Have a couple of hours to give?

This is an enjoyable event and a great way to kick-off the holiday season - bring your family and friends to help save a life!

A note about the times - we are committed to the stores from the start time (beginning of first shift) through the end time (end of last shift). Time slots are somewhat flexible within this range, so if there is a time you are available, but it's not shown as an option, PLEASE contact us directly, and we will make it work!

Can't volunteer, but want to help?

Stores provide the basics - table, chairs, scissors, tape...we NEED donations of wrapping paper, tags, ribbon, and bows for our wrapping kits!

Did you adopt from TSBR?

This is the time of year to bring your Ambassadog to an event and help us raise money to save more lives!

What is an Ambassadog, you may ask?

These are well-behaved dogs adopted through TSBR that come out to "Wrapping for Rescue" to showcase the amazing and grateful lives we save every day (it helps that they can beg for donations!)! Ambassadogs should be friendly, outgoing, and love to be loved on. It sounds like a sporting breed to me!!! 

Ambassadogs allow the general public to see first hand what amazing dogs are available through rescue and where their money goes! In short, they are the reason for Wrapping for Rescue!

Sign up for your Rockin' Holiday Ambassadog today!
