Happy 2007 from the "Pack" at Calico Creek Critters Rescue!
Our Featured Pet
According to a 1997 study of 1,000 animal shelters across the country approximately 1,000,000 dogs and 584,000 cats were taken in as strays. Unfortunately for the owners’ and the animals, only 16% of those dogs and 2% of those cats were returned to their owners, thousands of those left behind had to be euthanized. http://www.24petwatch.com//index.asp
The "Lunch Ladies" take a much deserved break from volunteering at the Carroll County Pound! Pictured are Lore-Calico Creek Critters Rescue, Melinda-New Beginnings Rescue, Lauren-Stop the Suffering Rescue, and Diane-private rescuer.
Meet Miss CoCo Chanel! This adorable little Chocolate Lab puppy was dumped at the pound by her owners because she was "sick". And that she certainly was! She was hours away from the gas chambers when we loaded up and drove to Ohio to rescue her. CoCo is being treated for numerous health problems--none of them as serious as we first thought, thank Heavens! She is well on her road to recovery, but we could use some help with her vet bills. If you can make a small donation towards CoCo's vet bill, please Pay Pal, or contact us and you can send a donation straight to her vet.
We are currently accepting applications to adopt this little sweetheart, and she will be ready for her furever home as soon as she is given a clean bill of health!
UPDATE: A BIG THANK YOU to all who have inquired and sent well wishes to CoCo! After much "nursing", CoCo was given a clean bill of health, and has gone to her furever home!
Please join us in welcoming Daphne and Daisy! They will be Beth Center High School's new mascot and mascot "in training"!

We are in desperate need of foster homes, so that we don't have to turn away a dog in need. If you can offer a loving, temporary home to a needy dog, please contact us for an application!
Can't adopt or foster, but want to help? Can you drive? We could really use your help! We are always looking for help moving dogs from the pound to rescue. Please contact us for more information on how you can lend a hand!
We are in need of the following: donated newspapers, towels, blankets and dog beds. We participate in Kuranda's dog bed program, if you would like to donate a dog bed, please click below. Any help is greatly appreciated!
We use Patented Kuranda Dog Beds because they are durable, chew proof and easy to clean. If you would like to donate a bed to us, click here.
We are a small group of home-based rescuers, doing our best to put an end to homeless and unwanted pets. While we started out on a mission to rescue Jack Russell and Boston Terriers, we have found it's very difficult to turn away others in need, and now rescue other small breeds as well.
The majority of our pets have come to us from pounds and shelters, where they were in danger of being euthanised. We also rescue from puppy mills and back yard breeders.
PLEASE consider adopting a rescued pet before buying from a pet store or backyard breeder! If you would like to know more about the puppy mills that supply pet stores, please follow the link to watch a video.
We are non-profit, and are in the process of filing for 501(c)3 status. All expenses come straight from our pocket and through the kind donations of great folks just like you. Won't you help us in our quest to help the animals? EVERY donation, no matter how small, can make a HUGE difference in the lives of our rescues!
Adopting a friend
Have you found the perfect pet for your family? Please call or email us for an adoption application. Once your application has been reviewed and approved, we will arrange for you to meet your "new best friend". Adoption fees vary with each individual dog.
CONGRATULATIONS to the Grace Family of Virginia on their new addition, Belle!
Congratulations to the Pitcock Family on the addition of little Bailey! May you have many happy years together!
Congratulations to Doogie, "Cruisin" home with the Kennedy clan!
Come Visit Us!
We would LOVE to meet you, and have you meet our furkids. Please email us at email@example.com for more information and an adoption application!
Because we are home-based and foster families, we do not have "hours". An approved application and appointment is necessary. We are sorry if this is a bit of an inconvenience, but adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment, and should be treated as such. Not to mention we have "human families" as well, and of course, they must come first. Thanks in advance for understanding, and we hope to meet you soon!

"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece
of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my
life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long
enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I
will become as generous and loving as they are"
