Canine Companions Rescue Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation founded in 2004 for the purpose of working with the community and area animal control agencies to promote the adoption of dogs without families. It is our goal to rescue dogs with good family potential. If our adopters and our dogs are both happier after the match, then we've done our job!

Our adoption fee is $250 for puppies and $200 for adults regardless of breed. . As part of this fee we will bring your dog up to date medically, including a spay or neuter. The adoption fee also includes a post-adoption vet visit with one of CCRC vets. For more details on what is covered, please see our Health Statement on the Adoption Application page. These services would run over $300 at the vet, so adopting a rescue dog makes good financial sense!

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fee is $250 for puppies and $200 for adults regardless of breed. This includes the animal's spay or neuter, age appropriate vaccinations, and a complimentary vet visit at one of our great vets within 7 days of the adoption. You will also have 30 days to return the dog for a full refund or exchange for a different dog if it is not the right fit for your home. We accept cash, checks, or credit cards.

Most of our dogs are kept in volunteer foster homes. Our volunteers do their best to evaluate the dogs and their behavior to inform the future owners about what they have observed while the dog has been living in their home. Please be aware that even if a dog has been living in a foster home, it is not a guarantee that the dog will not present other behaviors that were unknown to the foster family.

If you are interested in a puppy (under 6 months old), please know that we have a policy to hold our puppies for at least 10 days prior to adoption, during which time we are clearing them from any life threatening illnesses and getting them spayed/neutered and up to date with shots, etc. We DO NOT allow them to be seen during that hold period. One reason is that it is unfair to ask our fosters to make all of their puppies available at multiple times leading up to adoption. Also, since our puppies come from animal control facilities, it is not unusual for them to contract a serious (or even fatal) illness and we donĺt want your family to meet and begin to bond with a puppy only to have it possibly pass away from illness or surgery. We will set their adoption appointments as soon as possible once they are past the hold period. Thank you for understanding.

Once an application has been submitted, it will immediately be forwarded to the person responsible for adopting the pet you applied for, usually the foster or our director, and they will contact you with the status of your application within 24 hours. If we feel your home is appropriate and the animals is still available, we will ask that you schedule an appointment to meet the dog and complete the paperwork for adoption. Often we will email a response, and sometimes our emails end up in your spam/junk folder so please keep an eye on that. If you have not heard from us after 24 hours you may email ccrcdogs@ccrcdogs.com or call (248) 834-9419 to have someone follow up.

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.
