Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We are a non-profit organization - 501 (c) 3 - licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture to assist with homeless and/or abused animals. Canine Adoption Network is a group of dedicated individual foster homes that work to better the lives of companion animals. Our experience as animal rescuers and pet owners has given us first hand knowledge of the desperate plight of companion animals in today's society. Our mission is to place the animals that we are able to assist in the very best possible homes, no matter how long that may take.
We are a Group of Foster Homes in North Metro Atlanta, GA.
All our dogs live in our nuturing foster homes and are socialized with other animals. They are not kept in kennels. All dogs are spayed or neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and on heartworm prevention prior to adoption.
Dogs come from various places, rural and Metro Atlanta animal control facilities, strays, the hurt, the injured, the hungry, the afraid and lonely, the mistreated, we take as many as we can with the help of foster homes and donations.
The deepening foreclosure crisis also is having an effect. A growing number of pet owners are abandoning their pets or surrendering them to shelters after losing their homes or being forced into housing that doesn't allow animals. We've seen where people have abandoned dogs in the house, we've seen dogs that have been surviving for weeks on toilet water, we've seen dogs that have either been chained up outside or left in the yard when the people have left, we've seen pets who are just set free.
Please note, our adoptions are not done on a "first come first serve" basis. We are looking for the best possible match for our dogs and reserve the right to select or refuse an application at our discretion.
CAN is a 100% volunteer-based rescue and all our volunteers have jobs, families and dogs to take care of. Thank you for your patience and understanding if we don't get back to you immediately.
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.
