CCR takes in as many of the most unadoptable dogs on the state's euthanasia lists as we can provide appropriate

care for.

We medicate a minimum of 18 dogs a day, plus providing prescription diets for a growing number of our dogs.

Further, CCR has 2 three-legged dogs, another missing her foot due to cruelty and abuse, three blind dogs and another sighted only in one eye. We care for three totally toothless seniors and several others missing the majority of their teeth.

Currently we have three dogs with Valley Fever, the debilitating and expensive to treat fungal infection

Only with YOUR help can we provide for these Special Needs animals.

​Your donation in any amount helps THEM.

It is sad when a beloved family member - dog , cat or other non-human animal - passes. It is a difficult loss to bear....

A company called Rooted is offering to plant a FREE seedling tree in a forest in memory of your beloved companion.

You can, if you wish, create a little write up or story about your companion which will be posted on their website along with their photo.

Another service Rooted offers, rather than a simple cremation for your animal, they offer composting as a planet-friendly alternative.

Please check out their site....

We have created write ups on several of our animals which will be on their site soon.
