Mission Statement

Elliot & Friends Canine Rescue is a non-profit volunteer-run dog rescue serving the Canyon County, Idaho region in the United States of America. We are committed to receiving dogs from high-kill shelters, as well as those found abandoned or those surrendered by their owners and matching them with a loving and caring forever-family. We do not discriminate against canines or potential adopters. We bring in dogs of every size, age, breed, and medical condition to the greatest extent possible. In addition, we will not deny any potential adopter based on their sexual orientation, sexual identity, age, veteran status, race, ethnicity, or disability. Our sole considerations when approving or denying a potential adopter are their personality match with the canine, commitment to the canine’s well-being, financial ability to care for the canine, and the ability to meet any specific requirements for the well-being of the dog.


Elliot & Friends Canine Rescue was founded on the belief that dogs can provide a great means of companionship to individuals and families. From our experience, our dogs are our family, and we hope to foster that kind of relationship for our community. Our passion for animals grew throughout the years, to the point that we wanted to do more. That's where Elliot & Friends Canine Rescue was brought to our minds

Our founder, Caleb Edwards, is a military veteran who struggled with Anxiety Disorder after departing the United States Navy. He credits his success in overcoming his anxiety to having his dog, Elliot, as his companion in life's journeys. As an avid dog lover, Caleb has volunteered with animal rescues in the past and learned firsthand the impact they have on their communities, and he, along with his best friend Rachel Lindmeier, decided to do more and follow through on one of their life's goals by founding this rescue

We are a non-profit organization that relies heavily on the donations of individuals throughout the Canyon County, ID area.
