Our adoption process is designed to ensure the right dog goes to the right home. It is a multi-step process involving vet checks, home visits (virtual during COVID), and discussions with an adoption counselor.
Fostering saves lives. We get 30-35 requests a week for intake, and we can’t meet all the requests without dedicated fosters. We provide the supplies, you provide the love, training, and structure with support from our community!
Our adoption fees cover less than half of the cost of the “average” healthy dog. Most of our dogs have medical costs far above our donation fees. Your donation helps cover the medical vetting and needs for our huskies.
Volunteers are the life-blood of our organization, and we can use any skills, time, energy, and enthusiasm no matter where you are. Our hubs are in DFW, Austin, and San Antonio, but we have volunteers across Texas and the United States.

Medical Spotlight: Nala

Blessings as bountiful as husky hair!
It’s been a hard year for everyone, but November is a time to count blessings.
