Our adoption fees are $250 for puppies (less than 1 year), $200 for mature dogs (1-7 years), and $150 for seniors (7+ years). All adoption fee proceeds go directly towards providing vet expenses, food, supplies and boarding costs of our rescues. If you're interested in providing a rescue with a forever home, please contact us at


Have room in your home? Our rescues could also use a foster home instead of living in boarding facilities. CARES will provide you with food supplies and vet care. If you're interested in becoming a foster for any of our rescues, please contact us at

Meet our superstar, Tucker, who was recently featured on The Pet Lovers Guide (pictured above)! Tucker was rescued from an abusive owner when he was just a 3-month-old pup. His hind leg was missing from a severe leg injury, and was never given the proper medical care. As a result, Tucker's leg was left to heal on its own, and became compounded with paralysis of his lower back.

Tucker went through a series of surgeries to help improve his mobility, and has improved successfully with the help of family, friends, and complete strangers. He now has a custom fit wheelchair, and while there's more work to be done and more support to be raised, he has still remained a happy guy!

He now needs an immediate long-term foster or an adopter who can show the love and support he deserves. Tucker is 3 years old, dog-friendly, and farm animal-friendly. If you would like to know more about our precious Tucker, please contact us at
