We do not follow the shelter/kennel model for rescue.
When adopting a dog from a shelter or a rescue
who board their dogs in kennels or cages
or have their dogs fostering in prison's using "cell dog "training programs,
you have no idea how the dog will react to living in a family and home enviroment.
Our dogs all live in loving home enviroments while in our care
so we get to know each individual dog personally
and can be sure to match each dog to the best family for that particular dog
__________________________________________________
When you adopt a dog from CODA
you will be fully aware of all personality traits, training levels, issues or physical
or health problems so that you can be sure you are adopting a dog
that is the perfect match for your family
and so we are sure you are the best possible home for the dog.

In Greece they have a saying: "when your garden is thirsty, you do not water
foreign gardens".
Charity starts at home. Help the animals in need here in the U.S.A.

C.O.D.A.purchased an additional lot of land in the summer of 2007 ,adjacent to our main foster facility
The additional land enables us to have a larger play/exercise area for the rescue dogs
and enables us to provide more shelter/feeding areas for the stray/feral/homeless cats in the area also
This land purchase will also give us the room for future building of a facility to house more rescued special needs dogs
OUR HOPE IS TO USE THIS LAND AS A SPECIAL NEEDS OFF LEASH DOG PARK/PLAY CENTER
for area Deaf and Blind dogs and to hold training, education, and socialization/play- outdoor sessions
for special needs dogs and their owners here in the Cleveland area.
The CODA DOG PARK is being built using green technology and our goal is to convert the land
to an Eco Friendly area for all the local wildlife which is so desperately needed here in the inner city.


WE NEED YOUR HELP IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO PURCHASE

WHICH WILL ALSO SERVE AS A SOURCE OF FRESH WATER FOR LOCAL WILDLIFE

We are eliminating our Toll Free 800#

Our new phone number to reach us is 216-200-0389
but long distance calls will no longer be toll free
We were unable to find a sponsor for the 800# and in these tough
economic times we must trim our budget due to slow donations
and increased costs for veterinary care and necessary supplies
