As a 501c3 non-profit organization, Canine Pet Rescue survives and thrives on donations. It focuses on saving German Shepherds from high-kill shelters in the South but also takes in other breeds as well. Dogs that enter the Canine Pet Rescue facilities are crate trained, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and treated with flea and heartworm preventative care. Once given basic care and treatment, the dogs are put through an extensive temperament evaluation and offered for adoption.
