Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Twisted Branch Aussie Ranch is a dog rescue group in the beautiful Cedar Creek Lake area of East Texas. Our primary focus is to rescue Australian Shepherds and other herding breed dogs from Texas animal shelters, rehabilitate them into adoptable pets, and place them in well-suited forever homes. Not all dogs that end up in animal shelters are strays. Sometimes a very well-mannered, purebred dog will find itself in a shelter after the death of their owner, something no dog should have to face. Sometimes fully trained dogs are surrendered to shelters from their owners who can no longer afford to care for them. Some dogs we rescue have been stray for a very long time, and need loving care and rehabilitation to become wonderful adoptive pets. And sadly, some dogs have been abused and dumped. We feel that they all need an opportunity for a wonderful life in a forever home.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are not a shelter and we do not have kennels of dogs. Our dogs live as members of our families. We feel that the best way to transition a dog from shelter life and ensure a successful adoption is to fully integrate him with our other dogs and families, show him love and patience and earn his trust, and teach basic obedience commands using positive reinforcement methods. Our dogs all sleep in the house with the family and are treated as members of the family in every way. They are integrated into a well-balanced pack of dogs, both resident and foster, which assist greatly in the rehabilitation of shy or mistreated dogs. They learn to trust, to bond with both other animals and humans, and to enjoy life as a beloved pet. And for this, they will be forever grateful. Rescue dogs are not second-rate dogs; rescue dogs are the BEST choice! Nowhere else can you get the wisdom, heart, and gratitude of a rescued dog.

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.
