Kangal Rescue


There are currently no Kangal Dogs needing assistance or adoption.

Thank you for your interest, and please check back in the future!

Kangal Rescue Contact Information:


Rescue is an important function of the KDCA. The dogs the KDCA Rescue assists are either registered Kangal Dogs or from verifiable or registered Kangal Dog parentage. We are here to help Kangal Dogs that find themselves in an unfortunate situation. We are all volunteer and work solely for the animal's best interests. KDCA Rescue is supported solely by individual donations and we are always looking for volunteers to assist in its rescue efforts.

KDCA Rescue will NOT do third party adoptions nor will it purchase dogs or re-home dogs for profit.

If you have a dog in need:

Please email the Rescue committee for an in-take form at KDCARescue@gmail.com.


Provide the following information:

  • Where the dog is from (breeder, registration information, etc) and currently living.

  • Arrangements for possible care until a dog can be moved to a foster home.

  • A history of the dog including if the dog is working with stock, a farm guard dog, or a companion dog.

  • The reasons for giving the dog up.

  • Sex and age

  • Whether the dog is spayed or neutered plus all of its veterinary records.

  • 3 photos of the dog, one standing.

  • Additional information as required by the committee, which may include a behavioral evaluation.

If you wish to adopt or foster a dog:

  • Please fill out our new KDCA rescue application.

  • Complete the application and submit it with all required sections. 

  • No dog can be adopted without suitable fencing and a completed application. All applications will be considered on a case by case basis. 

  • Adoption fees must be paid in full before a dog is released. Adoption fees will vary per dog based on the dog’s individual needs and transport arrangements.

Donations:  Rescue is always in need of funds to help dogs with veterinary care, food and transportation.

If you can transport, donate or help in any other way, please let us know! Your assistance is vital to our organization's ability to help dogs in need.

KDCA Rescue Success Stories


Meet our beautiful, sable-colored rescue Kangal, Luke! 

Located in Michigan. Sadly Luke's owner became very ill and was unable to keep him. Luke is from old, documented lines. He is a 4-year old neutered Kangal dog. UTD on all vaccines. He has a very kind demeanor and is wonderful with people. Luke is best suited to be a companion dog as he has no experience to speak of with livestock.


He is excellent on leash. Attentive to direction. Has basic obedience skills and a real gentleman. He was in a wonderful foster home being tested with lots of other Kangal dogs in addition to other animals. It was determined that Luke would be best placed in a home with older children, female dogs and no cats. He is a very nice, steady dog.

Thank you to everyone who helped place Luke in his new home! He is doing very well, and we look forward to posting future updates we receive on this beautiful boy.
