CRCS Adoptions! Our process for transitioning them home.
Thank you for your interest in helping the 10%. Just like our dogs, we are a little different. To learn more about our adoption process or to get started in finding your match, read below. We are grateful for the opportunity!
Who we are:
We are a recovery, training, education and adoption center for “unadoptable” shelter dogs, dogs getting overlooked in high volume shelters, dog overcoming trauma and dogs whose owners are overcoming trauma. We invest a minimum of 2 to 6 months learning each dog before we make them available for adoption. We watch their behavior, we teach them basic foundation training, we socialize them with people and dogs to the best of their ability, and we give them exposure and experiences to “real world” situations so that we can create successful matches. We pay attention to details so you know exactly what you are getting. From food and bathroom habits, to what motivates them, their play style, human preferences, fears or sensitivities. We have the details on our dogs. We have dogs of all ages, sizes, breeds and temperaments looking for a home. We will provide you with a full history of the dog, behavior assessments, demos out on the trails, behavior & training support post-adoption and more. When you adopt from CRCS, you become part of the family. We invest in our dogs. We invest in you.
Who we are not:
We are not a quick or high-volume adoption center. We take in dogs that didn’t make it in quick, high volume shelters so every decision we make is about what’s best for the dog in their transition home. Lifelong decisions shouldn’t be made in one visit by either party. You need all the information possible before making a committed decision, and so do we. It’s about you. It’s about the dogs. For life.
