Adoption Process


So You Want To Adopt Your New Best Friend

Once our rescue team has been made aware of a Texas Airedale in need, the wheels immediately get put into motion. (NOTE: We only consider adoptive families in Texas and surrounding areas.)

We immediately put the call out to our network of volunteers in the region while we do our due diligence to match the dog with the perfect foster and/or adopter. This is where you come in.

We'll review your adoption application and if there's a fit, we'll support you in the transition with your new family member.

Our goal is to make the very best rescue match. Our thorough adoption questionnaire takes into consideration the dog's background and your specific needs. Every dog is different: personality, temperament, energy, comfort with kids and other animals, medical needs and more. We do our best to match the right dog with the right adoptive home because we want this to be the pet's permanent home.

If you are willing to wait for the right animal to be matched to you,
you are an ideal candidate for Texas Airedale Rescue Team.
As our success rate proves, these precious dogs are well worth the wait.




There are many facets that come together to make a perfect match, so we need to learn all about you. The first step is filling out our online adoption application.



We will review your application upon receipt. If we have any questions or concerns, we will contact you for clarity.


Home Visit

TART will call to let you know we received your adoption application and once we have a dog that is a match for you we will contact you about that particular dog and arrange a home visit or a virtual meeting.
