TIRR Rescue, which stands for Texas Independent Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue, is not so much an organization for finding homes for unwanted Rhodesian Ridgebacks, as it is a sanctuary inspired by the tenacity of the Ridgeback breed. Our objective is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for large dogs with behavioral issues, old dogs and dogs who would otherwise , have little or no chance of adoption.
Our Goal is to find a home for each and every dog, however we accept the reality that every dog that enters the Rescue Ranch may be there for the rest of it's life. Consequently great emphasis is placed on the quality of that life.
Our Mission Statement
TIRR Rescue's mission is the long term care and rehabilitation of large dogs with special needs. This animal rescue organization is inspired by the tenacity of the breed and on every special Ridgeback that lived over 20 years ago. Special needs, purebred Ridgebacks and Ridgeback mixes are given primary consideration when accepting dogs into our program. However no breed is arbitrarily excluded. Secondly, our mission is to educate the public of the importance of researching the breed they wish to adopt and more importantly educate the public on the special requirements of large dogs and dogs who have experienced undue stress. Last, but most importantly ensuring that all large dogs ( and/or RRs and RR mixes), who come into our program are surgically altered before placement , ( unless there is a medical reason preventing that surgery), and assisting in the locating of low-cost spay and neuter options for all breeds.
TIRR Rescue is an IRS sanctioned 501c3 non-profit organization.
