CRCS pup Smokie enjoying our amazing surroundings!

The primary focus of CRCS is the rescue, recovery and placement of at-risk dogs in our community. We do not discriminate against age, breed, or medical condition. We provide refuge and a second chance for dogs desperately needing at new start.

The dogs that come into our care have amazing stories of strength, love, triumph and survival to tell. Some have given their life to science and laboratory research. Others have suffered from neglect, abuse, hoarding, puppy mills or have endured long term confinement or isolation. In addition, we are a support for rescues and shelters, taking in dogs that have been waiting for extended periods to find a home, dogs that have been returned multiple times, and dogs that are struggling in the shelter environment due to fear and lack of socialization.

Canine Rehabilitation Center and Sanctuary (CRCS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our mission is "To inspire,educate and motivate the human spirit. To save, nurture and love the canine spirit and to bring the two together to change the way the world views, rescues and places homeless dogs."

Beating The Odds. One Dog At A Time.

  • We are dedicated to helping dogs recover from trauma such as abuse, neglect, long term confinement, and other special cases. Our program provides rescue, recovery, socialization, training, and placement for dogs that shelters and rescue organizations cannot place.
  • Our program is dedicated to the dog that sits in a shelter for a year or longer waiting patiently for someone to come along and say "that's the one I want" only to meet the dog and then say "no thanks".
  • We are dedicated to the dog that is unlucky enough to be a product of a puppy mill and live years in a cage, unaware of what it feels like to run free.
  • We are dedicated to the dog whose owner isolated her in a yard for years and forgot to socialize her, stimulate her, and offer guidance.
  • We are dedicated to the dog that is ill due to environment or age and doesn't have a family or home to call their own.
  • We are dedicated to the dog that, because someone forgot to take the time to work with them, ended up in a shelter, adopted then returned then adopted then returned.

This program is for you and your precious doggie soul. We know you can do it, someone just forgot to show you how. We don't care about your size, your age, your breed, your past, or your condition. We just care about you. This is your chance to learn. This is your chance to look up and say "hello world". Only we think you should enjoy it this time around. And you will, we just know it. God speed my sweet friend. God speed.


In November of 2013, we moved from a doggy day care center to an old, worn down building that had been sitting abandoned for a number of years. The building itself was needing some TLC but it provided a space for our dogs and it was something we could build on. We had over 5 acres of space in a quiet and beautiful setting. There were two commercial structures that we could renovate and make our very own.

After leasing the property and living in the buildings for two years, we were able to raise enough money to purchase it. We closed escrow in December of 2015. Since that time, we have been working very hard to complete the vision of CRCS. Once complete, CRCS will be the only campus of it's kind, a unique 5.2 acre campus geared towards the rescue, recovery and training for some very special dogs.

Our facility offers close access to Davis Creek Park, Washoe Lake State Park, Timberline and Galena trails and many more peaceful "off the beaten path" walking trails. In addition, we have nature path gently weaving through our property and various engagement activities along the way. Our campus is located in Washoe Valley just 6 short miles south of Reno, Nevada and within minutes of Lake Tahoe and Carson City. We have 5.2 acres of land and 11,200 sq feet of indoor facility space offering a safe haven for dogs in recovery, as well as a residence so we are near the dogs at all times.

We currently have 22 completed doggie condos with several more in the works. Every condo is unique and all have windows for natural lighting, soft bedding, and stimulation toys or stuffies to play with. Construction for condos comes from our wonderful donors and sponsors. We are currently accepting sponsorships for condos. If you or your business are interested in sponsoring a condo please contact us at or visit our donate page for more information.

Last winter (2016 - 2107) we had leaks all over the building. This year, we had a brand new roof installed thanks to some very special donors! In addition, our indoor play yard was completed in spring of 2017! Please see before and after pictures below. We are currently hard at work growing many of our different programs and services and designing new spaces to accommodate that growth - a classroom and a new building for training.

Our Training Division launched in 2016 and enabled us to provide a much needed service for shelters, rescue groups, and for the community. These programs are designed to reduce return rates and increase save rates within the shelter system, including Animal Control agencies. We provide educational classes (with and without your dog) as well training, behavior modification and consulting for everyone from private individuals to large, high-volume shelters. If you are interested in consulting services or partnering with us in the form of sponsorship's for our Training and Education Center, please contact us at Education saves lives.
