We believe that there is a special place out there for all unwanted and abandoned cattle dogs

New Hope Cattle Dogs' mission is helping discarded, stray and unwanted Australian Cattle Dogs (blue heelers, red heelers, queensland heelers) that need a second chance at finding a forever home and providing education and training to the public.

We believe that there is a special place out there for all unwanted and abandoned cattle dogs. We run a rescue group that strongly believes in spaying and neutering. All New Hope Cattle Dogs will be spayed or neutered, microchipped, vetted and up to date on all appropriate vaccinations.

It is our duty to match your lifestyle with the dog's personality for a "perfect" fit. It is important to us to place the dog that is right for you and your family in your home. Therefore, there are strict guidelines and qualifications that all potential adoptive homes must meet before we place a dog in their home. We rescue most of our dogs from the euthanasia lists of local pounds and shelters.

We do take owner surrenders when we have room (there is an intake fee), although we frown upon owners who dispose of their pets because they are no longer convenient. Dogs are like children and should not be thrown away like old furniture. Please take the time to try to work through behavioral problems before deciding to give your pet up, and take the time to find a good home for your pet.
