The Packs!

TIRR Rescue is lucky enough to be located in the country, where we are able to give our dogs lots of room to run and play.  We have divided our land into multiple yards - referred to as play yards - where the dogs get to spend most of their day (weather permitting, of course).  As such, we introduce our dogs to a very important aspect of dog life: play groups.  When a dog comes into the care of TIRR Rescue, after evaluating his or her health and behavior, we immediately work on getting them introduced into one of these packs.  The packs are very important to the dogs’ health, physically, mentally, and emotionally.  Being in a pack provides friends to wrestle and play with, teaches young dogs and dogs with slight behavioral issues how to act around other dogs, and allows the dog to be a dog, one thing that makes a dog very happy!

TIRR Rescue currently has 16 packs, some of them only packs of two, but packs nonetheless.  While some packs have been the same since the dogs first came to TIRR, many of them are constantly changing as dogs come in, get adopted, or cross the Rainbow Bridge.  While some of the dogs are Sanctuary Dogs that will stay at TIRR Rescue, many of them are dogs who, at the least, need fosters but would love adopters!

If you have any questions, feel free to message us via Facebook, on PetFinder, or through email ( or call Roy Hughes at 817-454-6023. If you would like to foster one of these great dogs, please fill out the form at If you would like to adopt one of them, the adoption application can be found at
