Available Dogs on PetFinder


We are a small rescue, dependent on volunteers.  Several times a year, we pull dogs from the puppy mills in Ohio.  Many of these dogs are purebred dogs who have lived their lives in cages.  We are forever surprised by their resilience and ability to transition to being happy dogs despite how poorly they have been treated by humans.  Throughout the year, we also get dogs and cats from the high-kill shelters in the south as well as helping local animals in need.  All animals are vetted, vaccinated, and spayed/neutered if old enough. Puppies are adopted out with a spay/neuter contract. 

The pandemic led to record numbers of adoptions across the country.  This meant transports were limited and fewer dogs were available for rescue.  Despite this, in 2020 CVCR helped 155 dogs and puppies find homes including several dogs with medical issues and 4 pregnant or newly delivered mama dogs with puppies that other rescues passed on.  We were also able to rescue and home 240 cats and kittens from high-kill shelters in the south.  Thanks to all the volunteer fosters, groomers, the vet team, and all the adoptive homes who made this possible. 

See our animals below who are waiting for a forever home.


It is unfortunate that we can only support a couple of elderly dogs at a time. More than the younger ones, older dogs are so lost when they are put out of their home.  They simply need a home to live out their remaining years in comfort.
