Hello, my name is Katie and I am the founder of Katie's Roadside Rescue. There are often dogs dumped on the dead end road where I work on the outskirts of San Antonio. I could not stand to watch their plight of often being ran off, left to fend for themselves, starve or get ran over so I decided to start a rescue of my own. The picture of the two below broke my heart. They would not leave this spot where their owner had left them with a bowl of water and a pile of dog food on the ground on a cold night in November. I spent hours getting them in my car. I found a wonderful rescue to take them in and shortly afterwards KRR was formed.
All dogs in KRR will be fully vetted and microchipped prior to adoption. Because of KRR's mission, all dogs must come back to this rescue so they never have to worry about being dumped along the road again.
Katie's Roadside Rescue is a no kill 501c3 non-profit organization with the mission of rescuing dogs left to fend for themselves. If they cannot or do not want to be caught, at a minimum food and water is left for them. KRR currently does not accept owner surrenders nor do we pull from kill shelters. There seems to be plenty on the side of the road at this time.
Donations and volunteers are the heart and core of KRR and we could not function without the generous help from others. Please click on the PayPal link on the left to make donations toward our dogs' medical and housing needs. All support is greatly appreciated and needed. Financial information is posted on this site so you know where your donations are being used. We are willing at any time to provide you with information and to show that all funds are used for the animals in rescue.
