About BRIT

Howdy, pleased to meet you!
We’re Brittany Rescue in Texas (BRIT), an all-volunteer non-profit Brittany rescue organization.

Besides playing with Brittanys all day, we identify and rescue stray, abandoned, surrendered, or impounded Brittanys (primarily in Texas and occasionally elsewhere as needed) plus search for the families of lost Brittanys.

We are a 501 c (3) non-profit group that rescues Brittanys (often called Brittany Spaniels), American Brittanys, and French Brittanys,
primarily in Texas, and occasionally elsewhere as needed. The Brittanys we rescue come mainly from shelters and owner surrenders. Our volunteers foster them in their own homes until “forever homes” can be found for them.

Brittanys are very high energy hunting dogs, bred to run, but very affectionate and have a sweet demeanor. They are highly inquisitive, and like to be constantly involved with their human families. To find out more about Brittanys, please check out our Breed Information and French Brittanys pages. 

We constantly identify new homeless Brittanys, so please check back often to see our new arrivals listed at Petfinder and on our Adoptable Brittanys page. If you find a Brittany that you would like to adopt, please fill out our BRIT-Adoption-Application.

We also facilitate finding the families of lost Brittanys.  If you have lost a Brittany, or know anything about a lost or found Brittany, please check out our Lost and Found. We will happily put up a listing with your information.

A helping hand is always needed for temporary foster care, transportation, shelter contacts, fundraising and in various other ways. Without our wonderful volunteers, we would not be able to save all the Brittanys that need our help. If you are interested in volunteering, please read more about how you can help on our Volunteering page, and fill out our BRIT-Volunteer-application.

As you can imagine, it costs a fair amount of money to take care of these wonderful Brittanys. Adoption Fees alone are not enough to cover their expenses. If you would like to donate money for the care of the homeless Brittanys we are helping, please go to our Donating page.
