My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Feeling a bit blue? A little lonely? Is it getting dark a bit too early? Bright can fix all of that - he's a beam of love and light in dog form! Bright came to CCR after his owners were unable to care for him anymore. He's a 7 1/2 year old Great Dane/pittie mix who tips the scales at 83 pounds. Despite his beefiness, Bright thinks he's a lap dog! He loves to snuggle and cuddle, and nothing makes him happier than some love time. Bright is your typical elephant-who-sees-a-mouse scaredy cat - he can be worried going for walks in new environments or when he hears big new sounds! Once he's comfortable, this guy LOVES to go for walks in the woods, sniff around under the snow, and then come home to a roaring fireside snooze! Bright is currently living in a foster home where is foster mama says he's just a doll! Because of his tough early life, Bright has some issues sharing his stuff with other dogs, so he'll need to be the only dog in the home. He does fine with dog-savvy cats - he's living with two now! We're looking for a low-key suburban or rural home where Bright can stretch his legs without the noise and stress of city living. He's a low-key, mellow adult guy who wants a low-key, mellow home where he can finally have the love and security he deserves. Bright isn't comfortable with young children.

More about this shelter

CCRF was founded in 2001 to help find permanent, loving homes for homeless dogs in our city. In just over seven years, CCRF has saved the lives of over 2,000 dogs, cats, kittens and puppies.

CCRF now assists the animals that are the MOST vulnerable in Midwest - the dogs and cats that are slated for euthanasia because they are too old, too young, injured, have disabilities, or have simply been overlooked for too long by potential adopters at other shelters.
