Our Featured Pets
THE TUXEDO TWINS!
SPENCER and TRACY are a really dynamic duo! These beautiful boys are Labrador Retriever mixes. Abandoned in a field near Sherman, these two boys apparently bonded for life. Talk about BFF!! As a general rule, adopting siblings isn't the best idea, but these two brothers have never had a cross word or curled lip - they play and play and play and just enjoy each other's company. Spencer and Tracy were trained at K-9 University in Garland and their lucky owner will have the privilege of refreshers. Both have the Lab personality and temperament and would be a real asset to any family. For more information, please email email@example.com

We require a vet reference (or two personal references).
If you are in a home we do require that you have a fence. We do not approve of "invisible fences" and welcome the opportunity to explain why.
We are happy to place dogs in apartments or condos depending upon the needs of the dog and the amount of exercise the dog would get. Our review process will take generally 1-3 days.
Upon approval of the application, we will arrange a home visit and bring the dog to your home for an introduction to existing pets. We do not leave the pet on this visit, but prefer to allow both parties to decide if this is the right match.
WE DO ADOPT OUT-OF-STATE and currently have dogs in Colorado, California, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Missouri, Washington, and Oklahoma.
If the adoption goes forward, there is a legally binding adoption contract to be signed. THE ADOPTION IS NOT COMPLETE UNTIL THE SIGNED CONTRACT AND ADOPTION FEE ARE RECEIVED AND ANY SPECIAL PROVISIONS HAVE BEEN COMPLETED. PLEASE NOTE: We do not adopt puppies or small dogs (under 25 pounds) to families with children under seven years of age.Adoption Fees range from $100 to $250 depending upon age and breed status. To find out more about adopting one of our pets please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Who We Are
CAN is a 501c3, non-profit, foster based program. WE DO NOT HAVE A SHELTER. All animals in our program receive necessary vaccinations, tests, treatments or surgeries, are spayed or neutered and microchipped before being adopted. We rescue dogs from shelters, from the streets and country roads and accept owner surrenders (with provisions). Some dogs are "COURTESY LISTINGS" meaning the dogs are not in our control, but we will facilitate the adoption process.
One of the advantages of having our dogs in private homes is that we have an understanding of their temperament and personalitiy.
Please be patient if we cannot answer you immediately - we do strive to respond within 24 hours to all inquiries.
Please consider adopting an adult or senior dog. These dogs are too often overlooked, when they make the easiest, most rewarding companions. In almost all cases, these dogs are already housetrained and no longer chew. It is a myth that an older dog cannot be retrained or fit into a different lifestyle. All they need is patience and caring. These dogs are more content to wait quietly for you to come home from work. These dogs are so very grateful for the love and attention - their only wish is for someone to love them and care for them.
