The 3R Rescue Mission

Our mission is to Rescue, Rehabilitate and Rehome animals in need of a second chance. They are provided medical care, quality nutrition, training and the opportunity to relax and socialize in a home environment, enabling them to become ‘good citizens’ in their new lives.

Adoption Success Stories

Rescue: Kiwi was a 5 month-old little terrier cross who was at a large rescue facility in a big city. Unfortunately, she was puppy who was very under-socialized. She feared people, her surroundings and life in general. She wasn’t eating and spending most of her time hiding under her dog bed. Her last chance for success was to get her into an environment where she could feel safe.

Rehab: 3R’s Rehab program included diet, medical and behavior assessment. Over several months with the patience of several volunteers and a carefully planned program, she learned to play with toys, accept treats, basic socialization to trust people and her environment, and she was started in basic obedience class.

Rehome: From Kiwi’s Adopter Sally: Kiwi, now Lucy Lu is doing great & fitting in well with our little pack! Four days in she is starting to blossom & her puppy self is coming out! I’ll be sending you videos & photos. Pictured: Ozzie, Lucy and Missy! Note: Sally has saved 2 lives for 3R. Ozzie is also a 3R Alumni. Thanks for completing my pack. Thank you so much for rescuing her & making her available to me!

A story to make you smile plus an adopter turned volunteer! Oliver was rescued as a stray on a rural, country road and instantly won the hearts of all the volunteers at 3R Rescue. His energetic personality and quickness to pick up on new commands made him a joy to work with. Alex Sommerfeldt, who assisted 3R with his initial rescue, fell so deeply in love with Oliver that she decided to adopt him and give him a forever home. He is now the fur-brother of Frank - Alex's spunky Dachshund - and together they provide love and entertainment to the whole family. What makes this story extra special is how Alex also fell in love with 3R Rescue. She is now part of our weekly team of dedicated volunteers that helps with exercise and caretaking of the dogs in our care. She is a professional photographer, occasionally bringing her camera along to snap fun and touching photos while she volunteers. Alex is the most recent of several adopters that have become volunteers at 3R Rescue. This sense of rescue and community warms our hearts and we'd like to express our thanks. High five...rather..."high paw" to Alex & Oliver!

Almost from day 1, Teddy has fit in with the family. He is best friends with Max (3 year terrier mix/rescue). They chase each other, wrestle and hang out together all the time. Teddy has been on 2 airline trips to Corpus Christi and has done just great. Of course, we carry him on the…
