Heeler Houla House Rescue (H3R) started when a small group of rescuers began working together in 2011. Its' mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and place Australian Cattle Dogs (Heelers), Catahoula Leopard Dogs, and herding breeds in loving homes, although we do accept other breeds as well. H3R works to promote rescuing pets as a healthy and compassionate alternative to supporting the breeding industry, as well as awareness of spaying and neutering as a effective means to fight the current problem of overpopulation and homeless companion animals.
H3R is a foster-based rescue, where animals will be vaccinated, treated for any illnesses, socialized, trained, spayed/neutered and prepared for their new lives as beloved family members. All applicants will have an extensive application, home checks, and vet references. We plan to match every dog with their forever family.
H3R's formation date is 6/3/2013 and provided official non-profit status on 10/22/2013.
