There are many ways to help TCDR help heelers. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and monetary and in-kind donations are tax deductible in accordance with Federal and State laws.

Be a Foster

The more foster homes we have, the more heelers we are able to save. Learn more about fostering for TCDR.

Make a Donation

Donations of any size are gladly accepted and help defray the cost of veterinary care and supplies. We have no paid staff and every penny we collect goes toward the care of our cattle dogs. To donate online, click the yellow Donate button to the right. Or mail a check or money order to our address.
