Story
Kealy loves, loves, loves other dogs! She also loves her toys. She was rescued from an extremely high kill shelter with a litter of newborn puppies. All her puppies are weaned and it's her time to land in her forever home. She has a love and zest for life that is contagious. She is house respectful too! Kealy will be perfect in a family that is active and adventurous. Her dream would be to be in a home with another playful dog. She doesn't care what size. She just loves to socialize and play. She is also the perfect size at 29 pounds. All dogs in our program are up to date on all their shots, spayed or neutered, and micro chipped. Our dogs are in foster homes which enables us to learn more about them in a home environment. We do not place dogs on a first come first serve basis, but rather to the home best suited for them. An application, adoption fee and contract are required. Please direct all questions to adopt@crdogrescue.com. All our dogs can be met with an approved application. Thank you for looking at a rescue dog for your next family member.

Story
Located in Lancaster text or email for direct contact with Rescuer Approved for same-day adoption memeco635@gmail.com (661)609-2186 Hello, my name is charlie I was found in an Amazon box with my sister on the side of the road in Perris, California. Thankfully, a good Samaritan, who often checked boxes tossed on the side of the road, stopped and got us just in time! She drove over an hour to get us into the arms of our rescuer because we were terrified of people 💔 it’s unknown what may have been our life before we were rescued but it’s clear we were abandoned, neglected, and mistreated because we don’t really trust people aren’t trying to hurt us. I allow our rescuer to hold me and carry me and I’m less afraid and a lot more calm when I am carried but i still get nervous with hands and I tend to tense up around too much hyperactivity. I would open up and thrive in a family that was patient and calm and would allow me the time to understand that I will never again be abused or neglected. It may take me a while to open up, so I am listed as “special needs” because it will take someone very special to make me feel safe enough to be a dog again. If you think you’re up to the challenge, please reach out to my rescuer with the information listed directly above my story to schedule a time to meet with me. I am approved for same-day adoption so if you fall in love with me after meeting me, you can take me home same day! I look forward to meeting you!
