CDT Rescue works hard to not only rescue but to help improve the quality of life for shelter animals. In 2009 we assisted in the housing of over 100+ dogs taken into custody from a suspected animal fighting operation. http://www.pet-abuse.com/cases/15839/IN/US/
During the housing of these rescued dogs, it became apparent that after being chained or confined for their entire lives and segregated from people, these dogs were in serious need of daily enrichment activities.
C.D.T. developed and implemented a kennel enrichment program that provides animals with mental, sensory and physical stimulation in order to maintain or improve their chances for adoption. Our Kennel Enrichment Program has been implemented at Indianapolis Animal Care & Control since 2010.

When adopting a dog from our organization we do not intend for the adoption process to be overly complicated or invasive. But please remember that these dogs have been in our homes and our hearts. We will not place them hurriedly or carelessly – Your understanding and patience is much appreciated.
To apply for a dog Please be sure to answer all questions as thoroughly as possible - Do not rush. It is important that you not answer the questions with the first thing that comes to mind but that you carefully consider each answer. It is also important to answer every question.
A thorough application helps us to know if the requested dog will be a good match for your family. The dog you thought was the perfect size, color or was just plain too cute to pass up might not be the best match for your family’s situation. Our goal is a pleasant adoption experience for both you and your new dog! A dog’s personality, degree of training and activity level are far better indicators of whether or not a particular dog will work out for you on a long-term basis.
The adoption fee is $125.00 - this helps to offset some of the cost for the dogs’ spay/neuter, vaccinations, heartworm testing, heartworm preventative as well as testing, and treatment (if needed) for internal parasites. This does not include any additional medical we may have to provide for the dog.
Casa Del Toro is staffed entirely by volunteers. We rely 100% on our adoption fees and public & private donations to provide for the dogs in our care. We have no federal funding at this time.
All adoptions will require a home check. Each of our dogs has been failed in some way by their former owners or they would not be with us. Some are rescued from situations of neglect and abuse, while others were abandoned by their caretakers when the responsibility of a pet became an inconvenience. We feel very strongly that it is our responsibility to ensure that our dogs never have to endure those situations again. We don't want to look in your closets and we don't care if the dishes need done. We only want to verify that you are able to provide a safe and caring environment for a needy dog.

Casa Del Toro, a 501(c)(3) Pit Bull Education & Rescue group.
The mission of Casa Del Toro Pit Bull Education & Rescue, is to be, dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, placement and public education of Pit Bulls, to end the suffering caused by animal fighting in our state while improving the quality of life for Shelter animals, particularly “Pit bulls”.
Improving the Quality of life for Shelter Pit Bulls through our Kennel Enrichment Program for Shelter Pit Bulls, Educate, Rescue, Working to help educate &eradicate Animal Fighting in Indiana.
At this time, Casa del Toro has no physical shelter where you can come and visit. Our dogs are housed in foster homes throughout the Greater Indianapolis & Marion/Hendricks County area. Foster dogs are provided with the time, structure, energy & the training they need to reach their full potential. Any dog in need of veterinary care receives that as well while they are in foster care.
We very much want you to come and visit with our dogs that we have for adoption.
Since our dogs are all in foster homes, we ask that you first complete the adoption application for the dog you desire to adopt. Therefore we know a little about you before we arrange a meeting between you & the foster home.
