Community Events fuel our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome dogs in need.


Thanks to our volunteers, we and our dogs can leave our private sanctuary and meet donors & adopters on common ground.

Join us for our famous fundraisers or monthly adoption events-- it's never a dull moment.

Annual Events

Each season brings a new affair to remember. Fundraisers, food drives, and holidays are always occasions we look forward to sharing with our supporters.


March 6-7th, 2024

Amplify Austin Day

Every year we participate in the biggest giving event in Central Texas. The more people that hear our story and donate to our cause during this 24 hours, the more lives we can save. When the time comes, help us get the word out by sharing social media posts and advocating for Highland Lakes Canine Rescue among your friends and family.

Learn more about Amplify Austin!




Our 18-hole scramble, raffle prizes, and closest to the pin games are among the most anticipated events of the year! Bring your golf-happy friends to win the grand prize, or shrug off your loss with a catered lunch and open bar.

Dogs and volunteers greet each player at the clubhouse before tee-off and some golfers have been known to find their ride-along for life at Putts4Pups!

One Pair


Pup-Ke-No & Summer Games

Summer nights are for the girls! The first Pup-Ke-No game night in 2023 was a raving success, so much so that we decided to bring it back every summer.

Ladies will enjoy the music, games, and drinks while our dogs benefit from their generous donation to join the party.



Bark At The Art

This gala always out-does itself, literally. Our most fabulous charity gala and art auction routinely exceeds our fundraising goals year after year. We owe it to patrons of the arts and dog lovers who arrive in black-tie and sleek gowns.

All who attend leave with fine goods, and good feelings (be it from their generosity or the complimentary cocktail service). A silent auction, raffle table, and games lead up to the main event: a live auction and 'paddles up!'

Save the date so you can lives!

Giving Tuesday

This day belongs to non-profits everywhere with worthy causes. It's stiff competition but we have to raise our voices to be seen!


We remind our community on this day of the value we provide to families in the Texas Hill Country: happy and faithful friendship from canines in need. Rescuing and rehabilitating as many dogs as we do depends on the generosity from friends, neighbors, and like-minded fellows.

Tomlinson's Pound4Pound

One food drive provides for the feeding of our dogs for the whole year! When you donate with Tomlinson's, they match your contribution pound for pound. Pound4Pound helps animal rescues all over Texas!

In 2023 we were donated over 6,000 pounds of high quality dog food. Exceptional diet and nutrition are a critical part of increasing the quality of life of our dogs.

Think of the dogs of Highland Lakes Canine Rescue during the giving season, and maximize your donation through giving events like Pound4Pound.

Christmas Card


Holiday Card Service

Each holiday season, we break out the stationary and stamps to offer a Holiday Greeting Card service to our donors. With a small donation and your recipient list we will take on the grueling task of signing, stamping, and posting your holiday cards.

Our Holiday Cards feature dogs and their stories from throughout the year and offer a message of peace and love to your friends and family.

Send warmth, season's greetings, and help save lives all at the same time.

Adoption Events

While visits to our 15-acre ranch are appointment only, we frequent adoption events hosted by businesses all over the Highland Lakes area.
