About Us

Our Story


Throw a Dog a Bone Dog Rescue was founded after our director visited a rural South Texas shelter to  transport a dog. The experience of seeing the conditions propelled her to found a rescue to work primarily with these shelters.  These shelters exist in rural communities all over the state.  They have little to no community support and funding is very limited.  We strive to find these shelters and help as much as we can.


How You Can Help


The main thing we need are fosters.  Fosters are the heart of rescue, because without a temporary place for the dogs to stay, we can't pull them from the shelters.  Fostering is immensely rewarding and completely free!  We take care of all of the costs associated with the dog while they are in your care and we try to get our dogs adopted as quickly as possible. Fostering for us is typically a 2-4 week commitment.
