You have reached the shelter page for Catahoula Rescue, Inc.. Catahoula Rescue, Inc. is located in Roundup, Montana. If you have information to add or update for Catahoula Rescue, Inc., please click here and let us know.
Catahoula Rescue Inc. was founded in 2001 by a small group of Catahoula owners. At that time, there was no other group specifically rescuing Catahoulas and Catahoula mixes from animal shelters. Often times, these wonderful dogs had little hope of getting out of the shelters alive. Catahoula Rescue Inc. CRI began working through the Catahoula Rescue Network in 2003 we were incorporated as a nonprofit group. We were recognized by the IRS as a 501c3 and received our final determination letter to that effect in April of 2004.
Catahoula Rescue Inc. is an all volunteer group whose mission is to advocate for homeless Catahoula Leopard Dogs and Catahoula mixes, to place these animals in permanent, loving homes, and to promote responsible guardianship through humane education. We are proud to be the original Catahoula Rescue. We have saved and rehomed hundreds of Catahoulas and Catahoula mixes, and work diligently to save as many of these wonderful dogs as possible. We are privledged to have the support of Catahoula owners and breeders across North America.
CRI is comprised of volunteers all over the United States and Canada who work tirelessly-from the president of CRI on down...but for as many people as there are, the need is greater! We need volunteers FOR MANY things! Go to www.catahoularescue.com for more information. Become a foster or volunteer in YOUR state EVERY hand counts in saving lives!
CRI is completely funded by private donors. We do have an adoption fee, but it seldom does more than cover the basic vetting each dog requires. Please consider gift certificates to national chain pet stores, Walmart, phone cards or prepaid gasoline cards to help our many volunteers, fosters and transport volunteers. Without them we could not do what we do...and those expenses are all out of pocket for each of us. Or consider making a tax-deductible donation.
If you are interested in a particular dog, contact the person listed on that dog's page. Not all dogs listed are in the care of Catahoula Rescue. Some dogs are listed for their current owners, while others are still in shelters. Placement of the shelter dogs is usually urgent as they are only given a limited time to be adopted before being killed.
We strive to save only dogs that are Catahoula or mixes that are PREDOMINANTLY Catahoula. However, if we do list a dog that is low-Catahoula or not Catahoula at all, we will state that clearly in the dog's bio. Many spotted dogs are inaccurately identified as Catahoulas, but spots do not a Catahoula make. When evaluating a dog for breed ID we look at the coat length, ear set, feet, and over-all body shape. A Catahoula or Catahoula mix should have a short, single coat, medium ears, large round feet with thick pads and well defined toes, and have a muscular but athletic build. Catahoulas have deep chests, an obvious tuck at the flank, and fairly long, straight legs. Catahoulas can have a natural bobtail, but most have a long fish-hook tail.
