Adoptable Pet List


My name is Buddy and I am eager to find someone to love! I was found with my brother, running loose....very skinny and scared. He found a home and now it's my turn. Until then, I'm sitting at the vet waiting for a foster or permanent home. If you're looking for an affectionate and loyal friend, I'm your guy. I'm only 1 1'2 years old, I love people and other dogs....I'm playful and full of joy. I'm also a good walking or running companion and I love hugs and belly rubs. I recently graduated from an advanced dog training program and follow up private lessons are available (free of charge) to whoever adopts or fosters me. I am up to date on vaccinations, micro-chipped and neutered. I weigh around 60 lbs and I'm all LOVE. I need a home where someone isn't gone full time though....either works from home or isn't gone from home all day.Contact if you can give Buddy a foster or permanent home.

Who We Are

Canine Crusaders of Atlanta is a non-profit, no-kill rescue organization, dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating abandoned, abused and neglected dogs across the Atlanta area. Our focus is to find responsible and loving homes for every dog that enters our program. We have a lifelong obligation to each dog that comes to us and we do our best to make the best possible placement, matching each dog with the right home.

Adopting a pet

We adopt in the metro Atlanta, Ga area only and do not adopt out of state. We conduct home visits prior to each adoption, which we find is a crucial part of the adoption process. Once an application has been submitted and is approved for a dog, a home visit is done. All dogs go out for a 2 week trial period. If the trial period is successful and all parties agree this is the right home for the dog, the adoption will occur. Adoption fees are $225 which includes spay or neuter, all vaccines, heartworm test, de-worming and a microchip. For homes with children, you must have a fenced yard.


Donations are always needed to help offset our expenses, which include vet bills and as well as boarding bills. Some dogs live at boarding kennels or vet offices until a foster home is found. Additional expenses include supplies such as crates, collars, dog food, as well as flea and heartworm prevention.

Foster Homes

Foster homes is one of our biggest needs in rescue. Without a home to stay in, these dogs either get turned away or have to live in a boarding facility. Foster homes provide a safe a loving home as well as food and we provide all vet care, as well as monthly flea and heartworm prevention.


We are always in need of dedicated volunteers who can help out with our adoption events on the weekends. Contact us for more info.

Surrendering a Pet

We are currently full and cannot take in any new pets, BUT we can help you find a home for your pet by posting them on our website, allowing them to come to our pet adoptions and helping screen applications as well as do home visit prior to adoption. If you want to give up a pet due to behavior problems, please reconsider giving up your pet. Behavior issues can usually be resolved with training, time and patience.
