We are a small rescue, dependent on volunteers and foster homes. 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 has led to record numbers of adoptions across the country. In 2020 CVCR helped 155 dogs and puppies, and 240 cats and kittens find homes. And in 2021, 185 dogs and puppies, and 208 cats and kittens found homes. Thanks to all the volunteer fosters, groomers, the vet team, and all the adoptive homes who made this possible.
