CANINE CRUSADERS OF ATLANTA RESCUE
PLEASE HELP SPARKY FIND HIS FOREVER HOME...2 YEARS AND WAITING!
Hi! My name is Sparky, and I am a great little guy. I'm only 3 years old and at 40 pounds I'm the perfect size. I really need a good home and have been at a boarding kennel for 2 long years. I love to play ball and I am a great running buddy and walking partner too. I'm a very affectionate boy and love to just hang out with you and snuggle. I graduated from an advanced training class and they said how smart I am. A follow up training program is available (free of charge) to whoever adopts or fosters me. Since I love to play fetch, my ideal home would have a fenced yard so you can throw the ball for me. I'm also housetrained and I love to go for car rides. I like to play with my dog friends, especially medium to large girl dogs. I am not sure what kind of dog I am, but people think I am a mix of Carolina Dog (American Dingo), American Staffordshire terrier and snuggle bunny! I do prefer to be in a kitty-free home. I am up to date on vaccinations, micro-chipped and neutered. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you can give Sparky 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 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 adoption events on the weekends. We currently hold pet adoptions at the Dunwoody Petsmart and welcome additional help at these events.
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.
