We are dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, including dogs, cats, and livestock, from high-kill shelters and owners who can no longer care for them. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians and amazing sponsors, our goal is to be able to rescue animals, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. We also strive to serve as a resource to our community and all pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, and good nutrition.

If you have questions the best way to reach us is by email at dustbowlanimalrescue@gmail.com. We typically reply to emails within 24 hours. You can also join our facebook page.


Being foster based we do NOT have a physical central shelter facility and all of our animals are kept at individual foster homes. Our mailing address is PO Box 62104 Midland, TX 79711.

Who is DBAR?

Mesha, our president, is one of the founding members of DBAR with over a decade of experience in rescue. Her knowledge from working with other organizations and personal rescues is a tremendous resource. Her experience has been invaluable both from "scooping the poop" while caring for fosters, to discussing detailed medical care with veterinarians. She has helped to develop and form our policies and procedures as a rescue to be both professional yet functional. Mesha is also one of our most active fosters!

Donna, our vice president started out fostering for DBAR. Over time she has become more involved and helps in many different areas. As a biomed technician she has a wonderful depth of medical knowledge that enables her to help care for some of our special needs fosters. She helps attend events, talk to the cameras, and wrangle all of the behind the scenes pieces - all while loving on her fosters and pets at home!

Katherine, our treasurer, was also a founding member of DBAR. As a CPA with over a decade of experience in public accounting she is our "professional nerd". She keeps DBAR's financials, forms, tax filings, and legal records straight and in order. Katherine is also a former cat foster (and she ended up adopting one of her fosters).

Terrah, our secretary also first came to DBAR as a foster. She is frequently found at events as well as loving on her fosters just like they are her personal pets! She helps manage the veterinary records, microchip IDs, and other pet paperwork that is part of running a successful rescue organization.

Beyond our officers are many board members, web administrators, fosters, and volunteers. Everyone does something different, and together we have been able to accomplish wonders. If you'd like to join our team check out the foster and volunteer page or come see us at an event!
