You are the lifeline.

It's hard to believe that just one person can have a meaningful impact. But you can. And, even if you make a difference for only one - for that one, you are everything.

How You Can Help

Adopt

Every day, too many dogs enter shelters. And not all of them leave. Adopt, save a life, make room for another dog at a shelter to be adopted, and gain a best friend forever. If you're looking for purpose, this is purpose calling.

CHOOSE A BEST FRIEND

Foster

Fostering a dog is incredibly rewarding. You're freeing up a spot so rescues can help another doggy, and you're giving this dog  desperately needed love, attention, and a safe home environment.

OPEN MY HOME

Volunteer

CPR Fund is run by 100% volunteers. We consistently need help with foster home visits, transports, administrative duties, vet visit assistance, foster training, marketing and design, and lots more!

I WANT TO HELP

Educate

One of an animal lover's most powerful tools is educating others about animal welfare and pet care including proper health, training, nutrition; and fostering, adoption, exposing myths, and more.

EVERY DAY HOLDS THE POSSIBILITY OF A MIRACLE

Our Mission

Over the years, our mission and purpose has remained strong: Save adoptable pets from euthanasia.

Since our inception 14 years ago, we have rescued over 2,000 animals who would've lost their lives to an unfair system. We promote community outreach and education, we navigate through all we do with empathy and kindness, and we're proud of our tenacity for saving animals from a cruel world that didn't give these pets a chance.

All of our rescues receive the best veterinary care available and are placed in loving foster homes until their forever families are found. While in foster care, CPR Fund's rescues are enriched through training, socialization, and manners. This regimen may seem a little too demanding for dogs that are often scared, confused, and previously abused or neglected - but the reality is, all this training improves their confidence! And it makes the eventual transition to their forever home much less stressful for both the dog and owner.
