Rudy's Rescue is a small, 501(c)(3) Nonprofit, all-breed rescue group based in Weatherford, TX. We are composed of volunteers who foster dogs in their homes. We hope to save as many abandoned, abused, neglected, unwanted, or medically challenged dogs who would otherwise be euthanized.

Your new family member will be up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, spayed/neutered, on heartworm/flea prevention, potty trained, or being potty trained.  

We want to help you the adopter, have all the tools you need to become a successful pet owner. We will support you every step of the way.

About Us


Rudy's Rescue was founded in 2019 by Deirdra (Sam) Maraist and named after her beloved dog Rudy. After moving to Weatherford and volunteering with a few rescue groups she decided it was time to start her rescue with a different goal. The goal or focus is to keep a very small group of foster dogs so the best care possible can be given to each dog taken in. Rudy's does its best to keep the total number of dogs fostered at 10-15. 

Rudy's is an all-breed, all-age, dog rescue with the biggest focus on senior or medically challenged dogs. We take in homeless and abandoned animals from shelters and owner surrenders. We place them in foster homes until they are adopted as we do not have a facility.  ​When medical care beyond regular vetting is necessary like heartworm treatment or other life-threatening conditions, Rudy takes care of these special needs as well.

Sometimes an elderly owner is not capable of giving care any longer. It is often common for people to surrender their dogs to a shelter when they become older and sick. No matter the reason, a shelter is no place for a devoted senior pet to spend his final days. Rudy's has a place for those pets as well. If we cannot find a new home for surrendered seniors, they spend the rest of their days with us.
