At Southridge Animal Hospital we truly appreciate the work that animal rescue organizations do, and we work with a number of rescue groups in our area to promote responsible pet ownership and the benefits of adoption. We understand that networking is a very important part of rescue, and we invite you to check out the websites and Facebook pages of some of the great organizations we support!


Vetapedia is an online resource designed to help veterinarians and staff answer pet owners’ questions and promote active interest in pet health.

link09My PetCare TV

PawPage is a free social networking platform created to bring together pet owners and pet businesses in an engaging experience that goes beyond traditional face-to-face meetings, uniting users that all share a common love for their pets.

link01DFW Rescue Me

DFW Rescue Me is an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) non profit organization whose goal is to reduce the number of animals euthanized in Dallas and the surrounding North Texas area.

Each year 5-7 million animals enter shelters nationwide. 3-4 million of those are euthanized, simply because no one wants them.

Together we can make a difference and save lives. You can get involved by donating, fostering, volunteering and most importantly, adopting your next pet!

link02Cat Matchers

Cat Matchers is an all-volunteer 501c3 organization dedicated to reducing the number of homeless animals.

Cat Matchers is made up of volunteers that take homeless animals from differing situations, provide appropriate vet care, and prepare them for adoption into a loving, lifelong home. They also try to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.

Cat Matchers strives to place the right cat (and sometimes dogs) into the right home. Cats have different temperaments and personalities just as dogs do; they also have different activity levels depending on their age and breed.

The cats and dogs that Cat Matchers places for adoption, have been in a home setting with foster volunteers. Not only does this give the animal(s) a chance to live in a healthier environment than a shelter or an outdoor living situation, but also this gives the foster volunteers an opportunity to learn about the animal’s temperament and personality. This is how their volunteer “matchmakers” are able to guide prospective adopters to the right pet.

Although not infallible, this approach helps maximize the desired outcome of the animal being a lifelong part of the family.

Cat Matchers can be contacted through their website at the above link, or at 972-458-PURR (7877) or

link03TX German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue

Texas GSP Rescue began in November of 2000 with the work of Diane Hagler out of Denton, Texas. As Diane began building resources, the German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue of North Texas incorporated and was recognized as a 501(c)(3) in April of 2003. Since that time the Rescue has continued to grow with adopters, volunteers and supporters.

Texas GSP Rescue is not a shelter and they have no kennel facility. Any dog taken into their program lives in a foster home until it is placed in a permanent adoptive home. As space permits, they cover the entire state of Texas and are the only GSP Rescue currently working in Texas. (They also do their best to cover intake in Oklahoma and Louisiana, as space permits, because there is no GSP rescue in either state.)

link04Texas Siamese Rescue

“Howdy from Texas Siamese Rescue at “Meezer Ranch!” We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has been in business since 1998. We are located just north of Dallas in Corinth, TX. We also have rescue affiliates in Houston and Abilene, as well as carefully screened foster homes.

We take our mission here very seriously: to rescue, treat, rehab, house, care, place, transport, and follow up with our Meezers and Meezer Mixes. We make a lifetime commitment to our cats when we bring them into our Rescue, and even when they are adopted into loving homes, we are available to them for the rest of their lives. Caring local veterinarians, staff, and volunteers assist us in our mission. We are supported entirely though grants, sponsorships, and the donations of Meezer lovers like you.

Volunteers are always needed to help with a variety of tasks. Check out the full site for info on all the ways that you can help. It takes many people to find the right home for every kitty. Plus our kitties are always looking for new people to serve their needs. Our kitties are very hands on and believe in helping to train our volunteers.

If you are not quite ready to make that wonderful commitment, or if the right pet for you hasn’t arrived yet at Meezer Ranch, there are many easy ways to help keep our Meezers/Mixes purring in their comfortable beds with healthy bodies and full tummies while they await adoption. And, because we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, your monetary donations are tax-deductible.

As we like to say in Texas, “Y-All come see us sometime!”

link05WildRescue, Inc./Rabbit Rescue

WildRescue, Inc./Rabbit Rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 1999 by Diana Leggett. They serve the North Texas community in two ways: First, they focus on domestic rabbit rescue and rehabilitation (this includes rescuing domestic rabbits from local animal shelters, spay/neutering all rabbits in anticipation of adopting them out to appropriate homes, participating in adoption events to introduce rabbits to potential new families, educating the public on the proper care and housing of domestic rabbits and other companion animals through events and school programs, and maintaining a facility that houses rabbits awaiting adoption or in need of a permanent safe place to live.) Sadly, there are far more domestic rabbits coming into area shelters than they are able to adopt out. The goal at WildRescue/Rabbit Rescue is to find them all loving families to live with, but until they do, these bunnies have the rescue as a place to call home.

Second, they Rescue and rehabilitate native Texas wildlife for return back to the wild. To do so they create and build appropriate environments to house wildlife in their care, strive to educate the public to coexist with our “urban” wildlife, and offer exclusion and inclusion solutions for nuisance animals, as well as educate the public on the importance of a healthy ecosystem to support wildlife. The wildlife that comes through the doors of WildRescue/Rabbit Rescue each year numbers in the 600-900s.

So, if you need help with local wildlife, or you’re looking for a bunny friend to add to your family, or you just want to help out a great rescue, contact WildRescue/Rabbit Rescue today!
