Texas Mini Aussie Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)3 adoption and referral service dedicated to placing homeless or abandoned Mini Aussies in loving, permanent homes. All representatives and foster families are volunteers – they receive no compensation and do it only for the love of the breed.

Texas Mini Aussie Rescue (TMAR) relies on volunteers throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth/Decatur areas that provide foster homes for our rescued Mini Aussies where they are prepared for new lives as beloved family members while awaiting adoption. Adoptions are not on a first come first serve basis as our main goal is to match the Mini Aussies we rescue with a forever family that is best suited to each dogs individual personality and needs ensuring a lifetime of love for both the dog and the adopter.

If you are interested in adopting a Miniature Australian Shepherd please review our adoption process located on our website at prior to completing an adoption application. In addition applicants are required to provide veterinarian & personal references and allow a friendly home visit from a rescue representative prior to the approval of meeting any of our adoptable dogs. Our adoption process may seem time consuming or unnecessarily complicated to some, but please understand that we have our Mini Aussies best interests at heart. We strive to find the best homes possible for each of our Mini Aussies, as well as find the right Mini Aussie for you and your lifestyle.

All of our Mini Aussies are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, de-wormed, heart worm tested, on heart worm & flea/tick preventatives as well as treated for any illness or injuries as needed.

Texas Mini Aussie Rescue has a constant need for volunteers in a variety of areas. Most of all we need volunteers who can provide our Mini Aussies with a safe place to stay while being prepared for adoption. Without foster homes we are simply unable to rescue these dogs who are becoming increasingly in need of our help! If you would like to become a foster please complete our Foster Application located on our websites Forms page at and email it to Once your completed application is received and processed a TMAR representative will be in contact with you to provide more information on our foster program and answer any questions you may have. Your help with rescuing this easily exploited and often misunderstood breed is crucial! **Volunteers wanting to foster must meet the same criteria as our adopters

If you are unable to foster and would still like to assist with our rescue efforts, please visit our websites volunteer page for more information on other ways you can volunteer and complete the Volunteer Form so that you can be apart of our team! We welcome volunteers with a variety of expertise and experience in all types of areas not just what is listed on our website.

Please keep in mind when submitting any applications or forms that it may take a few days for us to begin processing them. Our organization is completely run by unpaid volunteers, who dedicate their "free time" to help Mini Aussies in need of rescue aside from having full time employment and families to care for.
