It’s a blessing to do the work we do at Highland Lakes Canine Rescue,
being the bridge between deserving dogs and fabulous families.

After rescuing them, sometimes in the knick of time from kill shelters,
we rehab them, then carefully place them with adopters.
We delight in hearing how happy the dogs make you in your home.
The hard work is always worth it!

To keep making rescue magic happen… will you support our “One Special Place?”
A 100% donation driven charity, we operate without government funding from counties, cities or the state.
Your tax free donation directly impacts every dog– every day!
If you’re an adopter, please pay it forward.
Let another dog make another family complete.

Thank you!

Your tax deductible gift to Highland Lakes Canine Rescue enables us to provide the care, veterinary services and socialization that our rescued dogs need to help them find loving homes.

As a Sponsor, you’ll receive pictures and stories in our emailed Kennel newsletter, which updates you about the dogs who call your kennel home every quarter.

We have two types of kennels:

  • “Quarantine” Kennels that welcome our newly admitted dogs and dogs undergoing/recovering from medical treatments.
  • “General Population” Kennels that serve as home for dogs during their stays at HLCR.

While we give our dogs lots of play time in large outdoor pens and walks on our trails, the kennels provide security, routine and a sense of home. Each kennel’s interior, exterior and dog bedding are thoroughly cleaned. We have several dogs inhabiting a kennel over the course of a year, changed out once a dog gets adopted.

Maintenance, upkeep and typical care costs for the animals inside is $1,250 annually for a General Population Kennel for 1 year.

Maintenance, upkeep and specialized medical care costs for animals inside is $1,500 for a Quarantine Kennel for 1 year.

Some families choose to split the cost and go in together as sponsors- as do employees, church groups, civic groups and neighbors. With your generous support we can continue to provide a nurturing space for these future pets.


A Highland Hero is a critical donor to HLCR!
These people commit to give a recurring amount each month, providing reliable funding for the shelter.
They make a direct impact on the dogs, where their funds are used for medicine, treatments, surgeries, specialized food and care.
Highland Heroes ensure dogs get healthy and what they need to be adopted.

Each dog and every one of us thanks you for being a vital part of the mission we follow everyday!
