Canine Lifeline is located in Northeast Ohio.
Canine Lifeline is an all volunteer 501(c)3 organization with a mission to save adoptable dogs from being euthanized at shelters due to overcrowding or treatable medical conditions such as heartworm. All of our dogs are in foster homes throughout northeast Ohio.
Come Meet our Pets:
Canine Lifeline takes adoptable dogs to Petco in Macedonia most Saturdays from noon - 3 pm. If there is a particular dog that you are interested in meeting, you can contact us and we can bring him/her to the store for you to meet. We also participate in many adoption events throughout the summer. Please check our website at www.caninelifeline.org for the most current adoption event listing.
Our Adoption Process:
All Canine Lifeline dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption, up-to-date on vaccinations including a one-year rabies, and are on monthly heartworm preventative. In the warmer months of the year, our dogs are also on a flea and tick preventative. The adoption fee for dogs up to 7 years of age is $150. Senior dogs may be adopted for a reduced fee of $100. Since all of our dogs come from shelters and have been stray or abandoned at least once in their lives, we want to make sure that their next home is for keeps. Thatís why each adoption comes with a two-week trial period to make sure itís a perfect match before the adoption is finalized.
