adopt

At CRCS, our dogs are family. We make every effort to get to know everything we can about each dog prior to making them available for adoption. Our goal is successful placement into a forever loving home.

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered and current on vaccinations.

Adoption fees:

Our adoption application can be viewed and printed here CRCS Application for Adoption. We want all of our adoptions to be successful and therefore our process may be a little more extensive than other shelters and rescues. We ask that all family members and canine pals spend some time getting to know our dog before taking them home. We truly want a happy experience for the dogs and their new families.

Drop in's welcome every Saturday from 11am to 3pm. **All other visitations are by appointment only**

If you are interested in learning more about any of our dogs listed below, please contact us at 775.800.1906 or by email at info@crcsdogs.com.

Arizona

arizona1 arizona2 arizona3

Meet Arizona! Eager, curious, and motivated to get out and do! This little lady has got some herding instincts! She's smart and she's ready to learn. There really is a lot of work to be done and she is craving the calm and structured guidance that every herding dog dreams of. Arizona is seeking purpose and she's ready to find a human companion that wants to include her in the activities that they so enjoy. Hikers, runners, explorers... what's your passion? She's pretty sure she'd enjoy it right along side you! Due to breed, personality, and genetic make up, her ideal environment isn't right in the middle of busy, loud or chaotic activity. She wants to be able to focus on you, relax and do whatever task you have asked her to do. She will absolutely thrive when her person has taken the time to build a bond based on trust, respect, proper guidance. Adverse training methods will break and confuse this beautiful soul. Speak dog language and she is ALL IN, ready to do whatever you ask. She's a learner and a pleaser! We adore her enthusiasm and love for life! Age 7 years. 59 lbs.

**Visitations with Arizona are by appt. ONLY (even on Saturdays)! Please call or email us if you are interested in visiting with her!

Baloo

baloo1 baloo2 baloo3

Meet Baloo! Playful, happy, silly, and affectionate! This young man has been through a lot. We are so proud at all that he has overcome! While at CRCS, Baloo has gained life experience, expanded his social circle and settled into a consistent routine that is bringing him such joy. With regular exercise, lots of TLC and some basic structure, Baloo is ready to transition into life as a normal dog with a family of his very own. He loves to take walks and has great manners on the leash. His ideal home will be active and will want to include him on walks, car rides, movie night or a little snuggle time on the couch please! Due to his past, we are looking to place Baloo in an adult only home. Baloo does get along with dogs and can greet them beautifully while taking walks, however he is on a special training program and might need to be with a one dog family. Please inquire for more specific details and information. This boy doesn't seem to have a bad day. He will keep you smiling, we promise! Happy, sweet, loving. 4 years old. 83 lbs.

Bane

bane2 bane3 bane4

Meet Bane! Big, beautiful, goofy, affectionate, and playful! Bane weighs in at 140 lbs and he isn't quite done growing yet. He has another year still to mature into his adult body. He is all muscle and he throws it around with his constant happy dance! Though Bane is a very happy, silly and fun-loving dog, he is a Boerboel Mastiff. The Boerboel is a dominant breed and Bane's new owners will not only need to demonstrate their physical ability to handle a 160 lb dog before adopting, but they will need to have had experience with large breeds. Bane does like to play with other large dogs and he especially loves the companionship of certain playful personalities. Due to his sheer size, no senior dogs, small dogs or neighbors with small dogs please. Even playing with a small dog can lead to injury. Upon first meet, Bane will greet you with the most loving of "hellos." He will give you a big ol' smile, he'll lean into you for love and spend a moment dancing in circles to demonstrate his excitement to meet you. He is one happy boy with a very big heart. He is currently learning how to walk politely on a leash, he loves his blanket, riding in the car and is house-trained. Love this boy! Older children OK. Age 2 years. 122 lbs.

Banjo

banjo1 banjo2 banjo3

Meet Banjo! This sweet boy joined the CRCS family with his buddy, Skye (pictures coming soon!). We are giving these two friends some time to decompress and adjust as we learn all about them and what their needs are moving forward. Banjo is needing to gain some confidence, expand his social circle and learn about the world around him. He is shy and unsure but very curious, gentle and loving to those he meets. Banjo does not need miles and miles of hiking or a job, he is seeking companionship, love, stability and exposure with only a moderate exercise routine. It would be wonderful for him to get outside of a yard and gain some confidence in new surroundings. He is seeking a quiet environment without barking dogs, hustle and bustle or busyness. He is a pretty mellow guy that will thrive in a calmer environment with people that share his same energy. Age 4 years. 47 lbs.

**Visitations with Banjo are by appt. ONLY (even on Saturdays)! Please call or email us if you are interested in visiting with him!

Beau

beau5 beau4 beau7

Meet Beau! Silly, playful, gentle, and loving. Beau is on an incredible journey of recovery. The dog that arrived at CRCS many months ago is not the dog that we see today. Beau's paws show sings of his past and he is still missing some fur on his back, but you'd never know otherwise. We do expect his fur to continue to grow back as it has since the day of his arrival. He's almost there! This is a very gentle dog, soulful, and with a heart of gold. Beau is good with other dogs, children, cats and people. Due to his gentle nature and very soft temperament, dogs that are high energy or have the "run and wrestle" type personality are not the best match for Beau. He would love to have a canine companion, just one that is mellow and more his speed. Average walks are perfect for this guy, along with a lot of toy flinging (he LOVES his stuffies) and snuggle time on the couch. A beautiful dog, inside and out. We are looking to place Beau in a home with a yard so he has freedom to roam and play as well as people that will have time to spend with him and include him on activities. He doesn't demand miles of hiking or a job, but he does want and need to get out of the house and see the world and have experiences. He is a big teddy bear just waiting for the perfect family to come along and welcome him with open arms. Age 4 years. 101 lbs.

Beckett

beckett3 beckett4 beckett6

Meet Beckett! Smart, affectionate, athletic and loyal. Oh and he's pretty good looking too! To put it simple, Beckett operates on a mutual respect system with his people. He is your biggest fan when you are his. Speak his language and you'll have a loyal partner to the end. He is at his happiest when he's out exploring, stimulated and exercised right alongside his person. He loves to think and he loves to do! Beckett's ideal home is calm yet active. Beckett's ideal person is confident, intuitive and quiet. He has so much love to give and he's looking for a spacious place to settle down and get back into life. Beckett prefers young female dogs however we'd like to place him as an only dog. Adult only home. Sorry, no kitties please. Age 7 years. 77 lbs.

Beckett has his own web page! To learn more about Beckett, see additional photos and video visit Beckett's Page.

Charlie

charlie1 charlie2 charlie3

Meet Charlie! Silly, playful, affectionate, and mellow. His pictures tell it all. This guy carries a smile wherever he goes... and a toy if you'll let him! Charlie doesn't ask for much. He'd love to hang out on the couch and help you watch your favorite show, enjoy a car ride with his favorite human or head on out to the trails for a little sniffing and exploring. He is a pretty kick back kind of guy, house-trained, clean and easy to hang out with and snuggle with. Charlie can adapt to a variety of environments. He just wants to feel part of the family and be included on activities. The one thing he asks for is a home that shares his same energy. Now that he is an adult, Charlie isn't really into high energy dogs, overly playful dogs, small children... he just wants to chill and enjoy life. As most adults do. This boy is sweet, sweet, sweet and would absolutely love to steal your heart! How can you resist that smile? Need a new co-pilot and partner? This might be your boy. Age 7 years. 64 lbs.

Cleo

cleo4 cleo6 cleo5

Meet Cleo! At 9 years of age, this young lady has mentally battled more than we could ever imagine. Her past left a hole in her heart and a level of uncertainly when meeting new people. For those that understand canine communication, you'll be able to friend her in no time. She loves our entire staff and anyone that respects her space on first meet. Once she is comfortable, she gives her full heart and love. She is truly looking for a simple, quiet, no pressure lifestyle. A soft bed, a yard, companionship and very basic exercise and stimulation is all this girl needs in order to feel happy and secure (a car ride or a walk here and there). She is ready to find a forever home and finally "just be." Cleo loves little dogs as they are less threatening and scary. Cleo is currently integrated into our little dog play group here at CRCS, she cruises around with 10 little dogs in her presence just fine, doing her own thing, completely comfortable. Cleo had a botched eye surgery when she was young which left scaring on both eyes. She is petite and once in a home, will be low maintenance. With the adoption of Cleo, you will receive FULL SUPPORT from CRCS on several levels. Please inquire for more details. Our goal? Success and happiness for both Cleo and her adopter. Have an extra spot in the house for a senior girl? Rescue Cleo and she just may rescue you right back. We love this girl and all that she stands for. Little to medium size dogs OK. For Cleo's comfort, no children please, Cleo says thank you for respecting her wishes! Age 9 years. 43 lbs.

Cliff

cliff1 cliff2 cliff3

Meet Cliff! Tall, dark and handsome! He may be a senior but someone forgot to tell him that! He's in great shape and has absolutely perfect energy in all the appropriate places (we aren't biased... seriously). Cliff would love to accompany you on long walks and adventures but is also perfectly content to chill next to you on the couch and help you watch your favorite show. He is an affectionate guy, loyal, smart and eager to be with you! Cliff has asked us to help him find a special home. He has requested space, peace and quiet away from concentrated neighborhoods. His ideal human is loving and calm. He is pretty sure that somebody out there will need him just as much as he needs them. We just know, without a doubt, he can fill the empty position with nothing but poise and grace. His desire? A partnership. A forever human companion. Cliff comes as a single guy. With that, he promises to give his full heart. Cliff has also made a special request. We don't know what Cliff has experienced or believes when it comes to small children, we just know they make him uncomfortable. So if you're not so comfy around little people either... you and Cliff... well you just might get along perfectly. They sure are cute though! Single dog family looking for lots of love? THIS is your guy! As for adults, Cliff will greet you and everyone else with his incredible looks, his amazing smile, and a tail wag. He'll lean in for affection and melt your heart right along with it. He is a love! Sorry, Cliff doesn't speak cat. Age 7 years. 82 lbs.

Daisy

daisy2 daisy1 daisy3

Meet Daisy! Affectionate, loyal, and intelligent. What a beautiful soul. There are no words that can describe the progress this girl has made. What an incredible journey she is on. Daisy's history left her little options as far as moving forward in life. She arrived at CRCS without any communication skills and very little life experience. We had so much to show her and teach her. And we have to say, what a great student she is! Daisy is on a training program that has given her a life, the ability to trust, love and an eagerness to learn. Beautiful. Daisy has asked us to help her find an environment that is quiet and spacious with active humans that understand working breeds need a sense of purpose, consistency in routine, as well as mental stimulation and physical exercise. Her new human will need to be a big part of her transition home. Come spend time with her trainer and learn all about Daisy, work with her and become her person before she goes home. Once you adopt, CRCS peeps will become your new fan club and support crew. We love our dogs and those that adopt them! Daisy is very clean and house trained. Sorry, life with busy families in concentrated neighborhoods isn't going to bring Daisy the balance that she needs. This girl has so much to give and her environment and people will be the key to her success! She is ready to find a forever home. Could that be you? We are pretty sure she'll be the one doing the rescuing. We love this girl. Daisy does have a rough time during thunder storms and high winds. Keeping her inside with company, is what gets her through the scary sounds of weather. Age 6 years. 75 lbs.

Layla

Meet Layla! This toy flinging, affectionate girl with the big beautiful smile is currently taking interviews! Layla has recovered from two surgeries and survived something less than 5% of dogs that look like her survive... the system! She's the luckiest woman alive! Which means, you (her adopter) will then be blessed with such luck! If you need a little extra luck and love in your life, this might be your gal. A few of Layla's very best traits you ask? There are many. Layla is one of the cleanest dogs in our facility. She keeps her room immaculate. She never destroys or rips anything up, toys are always completely intact, beds and blankets stay in their place, food never spilled, she is house-trained and waits very patiently in her room until it's her turn for her next outing. Layla would also like to point out that she walks wonderfully on a leash and is the most well behaved dog in the car that you'll ever see! No bias! We swear! She is calm and quiet and stays in one place. She loves to see the world from the car window which makes taking her for outings fun and easy. She does have a few special requests - Layla has spent a long time in the hustle and bustle of the shelter. Finding a quiet home, without a lot of barking dogs nearby .... well, that's something she dreams about. Not only will it bring about her very best behavior, but you will start to see one PLAYFUL and very loving, loyal, affectionate, silly girl emerge. A quiet environment is her ticket to success. Layla does not enjoy the company of other dogs and asks to be with a one dog family. Dogs like Layla (that prefer people to dogs) take an extremely long time to adopt out. As a way of saying thank you for adopting our sweet girl, we'd like you to know that she comes support (and STUFF)! (some discounted, some for free). From sleepovers at CRCS while you are out of town to food, toys and training. We love this dog and want nothing more than to see her find a family of her own. For approved families, we'll go to the ends of the earth to provide a variety of services that can keep both Layla and her adopter happy. Inquire for details. Age 3 years old. 71 lbs.

This little lady is smart and O' so curious! She loves to observe, sniff, explore and learn about all the things going on around her. Luna will need an adult only home due to occasional tenderness in her back end. CRCS will provide full medical information about the soreness. She is not currently on any medications and does not need surgery. Looking for someone that needs you just as much as you need them? This might be your gal!

Meet Macey! Curious, athletic, energetic, affectionate! Macey is young and very playful, full of energy and full of life. Macey is also deaf. She is knowledgeable on hand signals, knows her basic commands and is very easily trained! She picks up on commands quickly. Macey is very friendly to new people, big and small. She greats strangers with a lot of love and energy and more tail wags and face licks than one can count! Macey most likely has some herding in her genetic make up. She loves to work, learn, and do. She is good with dogs on and off leash and has been integrated into several play groups here at the center. On a daily basis, we use her for behavior work with the other dogs due to her natural ability to greet new dogs well on a leash. Due to her genetics, age and energy, we are looking to match her up with a human that loves to hike/walk/jog and understands that working breeds need structure in order to stay happy and balanced. With those needs met, she is one pretty perfect dog (we aren't biased at all). She absolutely loves life! Though Macey is good with kids, she would prefer not to be a family dog. This beautiful girl is ready to find her new forever human and get out and see the world! She is bubbly, fun and oh so loving. Age 2 years. 80 lbs.

Nero

nero1 nero2 nero3

Meet Nero! Affectionate, affectionate, affectionate! Upon first glance, you will see that sweet Nero has been through a lot. On the outside, he is partially blind, a little unsteady on his feet and he wears many physical scars... each scar is a telling reminder of his triumph and bravery. On the inside, he is the most non-discriminating, loving and "live in the moment" soul you'll ever meet.

The first 6 years of his life are now behind him and he holds no grudges. He greets every man, woman and child with a smile, a lick and a tail wag. If you get down on his level, you might want to brace yourself… he'll take that as his cue to snuggle! He may be a bit wobbly on his feet, but the boy knows how to lean in and make you feel loved! The world would be a better place if everyone were as good at giving love and achieving complete forgiveness as Nero.

His personality is social and happy. His temperament is mellow. Because he sees shadows and movements without fully knowing what he's seeing, he can over stimulate when he's near dogs that he does not know. His ideal home is quiet with a spacious yard and no stairs. Nero is housetrained and very well mannered in the home. He loves other dogs as much as he loves people, however, due to his inability to see and hear clearly, he may not be a good fit for every dog. Dogs that do best with Nero are sturdy, confident, happy and well balanced. Get ready, he'll steal your heart, this one. He's something special. Age 7 years. 63 lbs.

Ozzy has an old fracture that he sustained prior to coming to CRCS. The fracture was never treated and has healed poorly. Unfortunately, due to his age, surgery is not the best option for Ozzy so we are managing him with pain medication to keep him comfortable and allow him to get out an exercise as he is able. He is on pain medication and will be for life. Ozzy is also a cancer survivor. This is one amazingly wise and experienced soul with a heart of gold. More than anything, he wants you. No need for long walks or ball throwing with this boy. His needs are simple. Ozzy's ideal environment will provide him companionship during the day, soft beds to lay on, a back yard to explore in and people or other dogs that will accept him for who he is with open arms. Ozzy will do best with dogs that are mellow and won't put pressure on him mentally or his physical body. He is a pretty quiet guy with a lot to give. Sorry, no kitty's and due to his physical condition, no children please. What a love of a dog. Age 10 years. 78 lbs.

Pippi

pippi3 pippi5 pippi6

We have to be honest... we aren't sure what breed this little cutie pie is! Truth be told Pippi is the size of a Beagle, the shape of a Corgi, has the hair coat of a Harbor Seal and the face of a lab mixed with a little something else! We do know this little girl is one pretty awesome dog! Don't be fooled by her funny shape, Pippi is a LITTLE dog. She weighs about 25 pounds and she's a short, stocky little fire-cracker. Pippi has sass and spunk and she's all about PLAY! In the home, Pippi does have good manners and knows when to kick back. She is however, an energetic little gal and her ideal environment will offer lots of space to run and play as well as an active owner that loves to hike/walk/explore. Pippi is currently in several play groups here at the center and though she loves to be social and play with other dogs, interactions with other dogs need to be structured. If you regular dog parks and busy public trails, Pippi says no thank you. She is at her happiest when she can take walks in spacious neighborhoods or explore off leash in open and nature filled places. This adorable girl is a fun-loving, toy chasing, fetching queen and will bring home the balls until the sun goes down. She is extremely affectionate with her people and always game for some fun! She is a snuggler! Love this dog. Age 4 years. 37 lbs.

Ranger

Meet Ranger! What an incredible journey this boy is on! Ranger may not have had the best past, but he is working really hard here at CRCS and he's ready to put all of that behind him! He may take a little time, but earning his trust is the key to opening his heart and helping him overcome. For the first 5 to 6 months of his stay with us, he underwent some pretty challenging medical treatments. It wasn't easy but he handled it like a trooper, even with very restricted exercise. Now that he is physically healthy and feeling much better, we are working hard with his training. He has come so so far and we are so proud of him. Ranger is getting to the point of being able to begin the transition to home and family. His adoption will take a little time. His forever human will be dog savvy, patient, kind and wanting to make a real difference in the life of a very special dog. Our trainers want to share with you all that we have learned about him, help you build a bond, show you his needs moving forward and walk with you as we all begin the transition together. He will need exercise, structure, love and leadership. We we will continue to offer additional support post adoption and we'd love to tell you all about that! His adoption comes with an entire family and support crew, that's us! He is house-trained, well mannered in the house, not destructive, loves the car. Got space? Speak dog? Shoot us an e-mail to inquire about details of Rangers training program. We are here for you and Ranger, forever. And you just never know, you might be the one getting rescued. Adult only home please. Age 2 years. 62 lbs.

Skye

skye1 skye2 skye3

Meet Skye! This charming and intelligent lady joined the CRCS family with her buddy Banjo. We are giving these two friends some time to decompress and adjust as we learn all about them and what their needs are moving forward. Skye is observant, alert, curious and confident. This beautiful girl may seem aloof at first meet (could be due to breed or history). However, those individuals that invest a little time in her, get to see a loving, more affectionate side. Skye walks great on a leash and is always very aware of her surroundings. She is constantly observing, keeping track of any and all happenings, yet in a very calm and matter of fact way. She loves to explore, sniff, walk and learn. She has a bit of an independent side yet she does like companionship and being in the company of her buddy Banjo or people. She rides good in the car and is looking for a quiet, spacious, calm household where she can finally settle and feel the stability and purpose she so craves. Age 4 years. 65 lbs.

Smokie

smokie1 smokie2 smokie3

Looking for the perfect dog? Keep on looking. Smokie will be the first one to tell you... there are a lot of things he doesn't like, some things he likes only some of the time, and other things he loves to the moon and back! This is a guy that knows what he wants, when he wants it, and he'll shoot it to you straight. Quirky? Or maybe he wears his emotions on his sleeve. Either way, he embraces it with complete confidence and maybe a grrrrrrr and a smile. On the flip side, for those he loves, he gives his full heart and wants nothing more than to be by your side. More than anything in the world, Smokie craves a person to call his very own. He is looking for a single human seeking companionship, someone that will include him on outdoor activities. We'll give him credit, he is being pretty patient about holding out for just the right one. He did want us to mention that he'd be willing to overlook your quirks if you can overlook his. He knows he isn't perfect, but he does have some pretty perfect qualities when it comes to stuff he likes! Smokie is an absolute joy to take hiking and he is at his best when he's out on the trails, sniffing around and investigating his surroundings! He also LOVES to take car rides or he'll happily hang out with you and watch your favorite show. If you're looking for a guy that will stick with you through thick and thin, will tell it to you straight without the sugar coating, and will give his full heart to you and only you, come meet our man Smokie! Cute as a button (don't tell him we said that) and tough as nails (you can tell him we said that). Looks good in a sweater too! One he likes that is... 8 yrs old. 19 lbs.

Smokie has a neurologic condition. He is not on any medication but he is a special little guy. We still love him and we think you will too!

Spencer

spencer1 spencer2 spencer3

Meet Spencer! Sweet, gentle, and loving. At 13 years young, Spencer has a few stories to tell. He's ready to move forward, find a loving home, a soft bed and a friend to to pal around with so he can relax and enjoy his golden years. Spencer arrived at CRCS at a very unhealthy weight. We have worked hard to help him shed some pounds and get back to being a dog again. He is loving all the freedom that losing weight has given him. His new home will need to continue our work by providing a healthy diet and regular exercise so that he can enjoy many more years to come. Spencer has a soft disposition, a calm demeanor and a very sweet, affectionate nature. You'll fall in love on first meet. He has a huge heart and wants nothing more than to give love and be loved. He is a gentle soul. Spencer loves people, dogs, cats, kids and can adapt to a variety of different households. Because of his age and history, we are looking to place him in a home where he will have company during the day and with a family that will include him on activities. Spencer is house trained and knows how to ask to go out. Due to age, he does need to go outside several times during the day so a home that doesn't mind giving this love bug consistent outings to relieve himself is needed. What a LOVE of a dog he is! We are absolutely head over heals for this boy. Age 13 years. 40 lbs and dropping!

Stanley

Meet Stanley! Loving, loyal, and athletic. We have known Stanley for a very long time. This boy wants nothing more than to get out and do… with you! He is at his absolute best when he has structure and regular exercise from his human. Tell him what you want and he will do it. A home without structure is like a life without purpose for Mr. Stanley. This is a love of a dog that is eager to please. Stanley can adapt to a variety of environments as long as his needs are met. He loves space, exploring, snuggling, learning, loving. He has lived with other dogs in the past though he may prefer to be an only dog. It would all depend he says… there are certain canine personalities that he truly enjoys. Stanley rides great in the car and has learned quite a few new skills here at the center! He would love to show them off if you give him an opportunity at a visit. We love this boy! Sorry, Stanley does not speak cat. Stanley is 4 years old. 64 lbs.

Meet Wedge! Intelligent, athletic, attentive, wiggly, and fun. Bred to work, think, do. Family life? That really isn't his thing. This sweet boy has requested an environment that's a little more structured and engaging for him. He is ready to find a dog savvy human that's equally excited to get out and do!

Willow

willow2 willow1 willow3

Meet Willow! Intelligent, shy, agile, athletic, and an excellent communicator. This girl is extremely loving and playful with both people and dogs that have taken their time to get to know her, gone at her pace, and invested consistent time in being with her. Willow is special. Her skill set in canine communication is incredible. She only connects with those that know how to communicate via energy and body language. A calm and gentle demeanor is required. For humans that carry her same skill set, Willow will open up in a very big way and when she does, she gives her full heart. She becomes playful, engaged and loves to bring you sticks! It's beautiful. Her past is that of survival and disconnectedness. Due to her breed, history and individual personality, we have a very specific home in mind for this wise soul. A calm, loving, athletic, active person that is looking for a true companion. Willow will not thrive in a home that sees her as a pet. She is looking for a bonded partner, a companion, someone that will spend hours with her every single day and include her on most activities. Without that connection, she will mentally and physically move on. And we do mean that literally. If you are seeking a soul mate and speak dog, we invite you to take the Willow test. She will know in minutes if you can speak her language (and so will we). Once you experience a bond with this girl, you'll never be the same. It is truly unique and special. Sorry, Willow is not a family dog or a dog for a room mate setting. She is on another level and needs a strong sense of contentedness with one or two individuals in order to succeed in the human world. Age 4 years. 42 lbs.

Jessie

Jessie Came to CRCS in 2013. She was a long time shelter dog at another facility and being a black pittie, she was having a hard time getting noticed. Shortly after she came to CRCS, we discovered she had a torn cruciate ligament requiring surgery. She came through surgery with flying colors and rehabbed like a champ! Jessie is a favorite among staff at CRCS and a best friend to her room-mate, Beckett. She is a huge help for us evaluating other dogs as she is a dog-friendly and has a good energy. Jessie loves to plop herself down on a bench or roll in the tall grass on our walking paths. Her daily motto is "take time to stop and smell the roses". She is all about sunshine and lazy days and hanging out watching the days go by with a smile on her face.

A few photos of Jessie enjoying herself taken by our team.

Sprinter

Sprinter grew up in the shelter, from puppyhood to adulthood, so EVERYTHING is an adventure! Sprinter's challenge is learning to trust new and different people. To help Sprinter out, we have a great group of volunteers working on expanding his social circles. Every day he gets to practice his skills around other dogs and new people. Our crew takes him on car rides, out to the play yard to splash in the water and for and hikes on the trail. Sprinter has shown us what a character he is and has demonstrated his fondness for all things mud and dirt!

Scarlet

Scarlet became a member of the CRCS family a few years ago and is improving every month. Slowly but surely, she is making big strides in her recovery. Scarlet survived being hit by a car. She had a shattered hip and no one knew it for 10 days. We can only imagine the pain she was in. She also survived an owner that thought caring for a dog meant tying them to a tree, isolated for years. Scarlet was also a victim of a hoarding situation, living in a crate inside an RV garage for 3 years with 26 other screaming dogs surrounding her.

Today, Scarlet is experiencing all kinds of new and different people and taking car rides to "help" run errands, go on hikes and practice every day dog activities. She is the official CRCS mascot ... She is an AMAZING helper and our permanent co-pilot!

A few photos taken of Scarlet having fun at CRCS.
