About Our Rescue Group:

Canines With a Cause brings shelter dogs and military veterans together. Veterans benefit from the healing companionship of the dog and shelter dogs lives are saved by finding loving homes. Working with the dogs and training them to help others has proven to be very beneficial to veterans.
We also have an adoption program for those dogs who would rather just be a family companion than a working pooch. We call these dogs our “Diamonds in the Ruff”, since we know they are all precious jewels. Most of our dogs were on death row at one time for no reason other than they had the bad luck of ending up in a crowded shelter.
Canines With a Cause is dedicated to the mission of creating public awareness and emphasizing how dogs and other companion animals enrich our lives.

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
