Dallas/Ft. Worth Sheltie Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit organization comprised of volunteers who give of their time, their efforts, and their homes to help place rescued Shelties with families where they will be loved and well cared for. Sheltie Rescue had its beginnings in July 1991 when the Dallas Shetland Sheepdog Club responded to a need to find good homes for dogs who are abandoned, lost, mistreated, or no longer wanted. The Dallas/Ft. Worth Sheltie Rescue is now an independent entity, its volunteers are Shelties owners who know and love the Shetland Sheepdog breed. Our goal continues to be the same: the protection of Shelties and the education of Sheltie owners. As part of our outreach program, we also have an active Lost and Found division that helps to reunite lost Shelties and their owners.


No scheduled Adoption Events for 2017.

We simply have too few adoptable Shelties to warrant formal Adopt-a-Sheltie events at this time. 

Please check back to our Petfinder site  
and/or contact us at any time.   

We do want to acknowledge with appreciation the many times PETCO has graciously held our adoption events at their stores, and helped us in many ways.  It's easy to say "Please" and the managers at PETCO never turned us down.  Its our turn to say "Thank you."
