Highland Lakes Canine Rescue depends on donations to provide the rescue and care for the dogs.

You can help!

Donations may be made via PayPal or Venmo.  
*It may say Patty Bates above @highlandlakescaninerescue – that’s us!

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 Kennel Sponsor, you’ll have your name posted on your kennel and you’ll receive email pictures and updates on your dog tenants.

We have two types of kennels in our shelter complex:

  • Quarantine Kennels that welcome our newly admitted dogs until they have been examined by our veterinarian and cleared of communicable disease, and that house our dogs undergoing or 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 long walks on our many trails, their kennels provide shelter, security, routine and a sense of home. Each dog is assigned a kennel during its stay with us. Each kennel’s interior, exterior and dog bedding are thoroughly cleaned every day. We may have several dogs inhabiting a particular kennel over the course of a year as previous tenants find their forever homes.

The cost for the maintenance and upkeep of a kennel is $1,250 annually per resident dog. With your generous support we can continue to provide a nurturing, temporary home for these future pets.
