Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Cane's Crossing serves central Florida, centralizing in the Greater Orlando Area. We have adopted animals to wonderful families in Tampa, Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, and Miami.

About Our Rescue Group:

Cane's Crossing is works out of the Hiawassee Veterinary Clinic. It began with taking in animals that were left on our doorstep. However, in 2008, a puppy came to us with the name, Cane. Cane was only 3 months old and was already limping. Within a week, he was paralyzed in his back legs. The owners chose not to care for him anymore, and we took him in. With donations from our wonderful clients, we were able to get him a wheelchair, and he was up and running! He had such a wonderful spirit and was adopted by a loving family. After a year, he was diagnosed with a tumor that ended his life. We look back at Cane and know that he lived his short life to the fullest. That's how Cane's Crossing was started.
Now, we focus on animals that may now have a chance in a shelter setting. We have treated many heartworm positive dogs, dogs that have had to have leg amputations, and kittens with severe eye trauma.

Come Meet our Pets:

Cane's Crossing is located at the Hiawassee Veterinary Clinic in Orlando, FL. We open our doors at 7:30 am until 5:30 pm Monday through Friday ad 7:30 am until 11:30 am on Saturday. It is best to give us a call at (407) 299-3969 to schedule a meet-n-greet, however walk-ins are welcome.
Events will be posted.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process begins with a simple meet-n-greet. If, after spending some quality time with our furry friends, you decide that you would like to adopt we then go over some adoption paperwork. The adoption fee for kittens, puppies, and adult dogs is $100.00, which includes all of their first year vaccines, spay/neuter, Fiv/Felv test (for kittens), Heartworm test (for dogs) and deworming. The adoption fee for adult cats is $50.00, and includes all of the above. If any animal is adopted with a pre existing condition (ie. heartworm positive, surgical issues), the adoption fee will cover those costs as well.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
