About Our Shelter:

Canine Rescue Coalition is an all volunteer organization formed to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome dogs that come from abusive, neglectful and stray situations. We specialize in the Neapolitan Mastiff and the Mastiff breeds. Ideally all dogs awaiting forever homes are in foster homes, when they are not available we use various boarding kennels. We are always in desperate need for additional foster homes and if you think you might be able to help please call us at (562) 425-8354.

We currently have many wonderful dogs waiting for a home to call their own, please visit the dogs and consider adopting one of our furry friends.


Come Meet our Pets:

We do not have one shelter, our dogs are in various boarding kennels and foster homes throughout Southern California.

Our Adoption Process:

The adoption process is outlined on our website. In addition, you may fill out an application online at our website.

Canine Rescue Coalition handles each adoption application individually, on a case-by-case basis. We consider each adoption to be that dog’s forever home, meaning its home for the remainder of its life, so we work to find the right environment for the dog and the right dog for the adopter’s environment.

We are under no obligation to adopt a dog to any individual.

Canine Rescue Coalition takes one to three weeks to process an application. We first conduct a phone interview, then all references are checked. If the references are favorable, we then schedule a home visit. All members of the household must be present during the home visit.

When the potential adopters are approved a time will be scheduled to meet the new dog and introduce him/her into the new home.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
