About Lucky Mutts


Lucky Mutts is a 501(c)(3) non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to educating the public on responsible pet ownership to help prevent the needless killing of dogs at shelters. We are also a foster network that adopts dogs to lucky people in the Austin, TX area.


Our Lucky Mutts need you!

We are always looking for loving foster homes. We can only rescue as many dogs that we have foster homes for, since we do not have a kennel. Please volunteer to foster. It is a rewarding experience and a joy to watch the rescues blossom into wonderful pets and bond with their forever family when they are ready. Help transition a street dog to a house dog!

Surrender a Dog


Lucky Mutts Rescue does not have foster homes to take in surrendered dogs directly. However, we can assist you by providing resources.

Whether you feel overwhelmed by medical costs or feel your dog has unmanageable behavior, you don’t have to give up your furry family member. There is help available. View Help ››
