Texas Husky Rescue, Inc, was established in May 2009 to help save homeless, abused and neglected huskies and adopt them into permanent and loving forever homes. We are a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization run entirely by volunteers with no paid staff or shelter. We rely on our network of foster families to give temporary homes to huskies until their permanent home is found. We provide all necessary vetting and medical care to every Siberian that we take into our program and we are a responsible animal rescue agency in that we spay/neuter every husky prior to adoption. We are proud to have saved over 1,500 huskies since our inception!
TXHR does not just rescue the healthy, adoptable dogs, but we also save those that need it the most – many deemed rescue only due to medical and behavioral issues and those taken in from cruelty seizures and puppy mills. Often these huskies require extensive medical treatment – surgeries for broken bones or long term treatments for mange. Others come to us with behavioral issues as a result of abuse, neglect and mistreatment – some of the worst from cruelty seizures which require substantial resources and additional time in our program to help them overcome their previous lives.
In 2016 alone, we had 41 puppies (6 litters) born in to our rescue, 29 heartworm positive huskies that needed treated, 34 huskies saved from cruelty seizures and 21 extensive medical cases requiring much greater than normal vetting, financial and fostering resources. Our expenses spent directly on our huskies topped $157,000. With 220 huskies rescued in the year, that equates to an average cost of over $700 per dog. With adoption fees covering less than half of that expense, donations and fundraising our essential in allowing us to continue the work that we do.
Our golf tournament is our single largest fundraiser of the year, netting over $18,000 in 2016! All proceeds directly benefit huskies in need throughout Texas and the surrounding states by allowing us to do what we do best - rescue and rehabilitate Siberians and place them in their forever homes. So, we need you, your business and your support to help us help these beautiful animals. We hope you’ll join us by playing, donating or sponsoring!
