Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We rescue ACD's from Ohio and surrounding states. We welcome adopters from anywhere as long as the approved adopter travels to our foster dogs location.

About Our Rescue Group:

Ohio Cattle Dog Rescue Team may be a newly formed group, however this Team has many combined years working together in Rescue. The Founders of OCDRT have been active in ACD Rescue since 2003 along with backgrounds in the veterinary fields since 1982, animal control fields since 2004, business ownership fields, military fields, & all have been through the adoption process with other Rescues.
OCDRT has filed with the Ohio Department of Agriculture as an operating rescue, & will be filing for our 501(c)3 in the near future. Until then your donations are not tax deductible. If you would like to make a donation please email acdrsqohio@gmail.com for details on helping with OCDRT's food and / or vet expenses. OCDRT appreciates your support!
We welcome you to join in on our mission of "Fitting the Pieces Together, so You'll Never Walk Alone". It takes many pieces to make a puzzle complete and everyone is a unique piece that can fit in to complete the puzzle. Alone we are unique, together we make the picture complete.

Ohio Cattle Dog Rescue Team's primary foster home is based just outside of Sterling, OH. There is over an acre fenced in for safe off leash play. Our foster dogs live in our homes with us and are treated like one of our own. While with us they learn housebreaking, crate training, general obedience, leash skills, house manners, socialization with adults, children, & multiple dogs, traveling in a vehicle, and a few other things depending on the foster dog. Each foster dog continues their socialization with humans & other dogs. All our fosters are completely vetted and evaluated for a minimum of 2-3 weeks to learn their likes/dislikes and what type of home they need, while at the primary foster home. Once their 2-3 week evaluation has passed, if they are ready & there is a compatible foster home open, OCDRT will transfer a foster to make room for a new ACD to enter our program. All foster homes must be within a 30 minute drive of our primary vet clinic in Rittman, OH.

We check references, do a phone interview, have a home visit, and set up a meeting to meet the foster dog. Our adoption fee is $250 which helps to cover spaying or neutering, all appropriate vaccines, de-wormings, heartworm & tick borne disease testing, micro-chip, and other necessary medical needs. Thank you for considering a foster of ours!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
