Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Companion Pet Rescue's mission is to rescue homeless, abused and neglected dogs and pups from high kill shelters and other unwanted living arrangements. Once in our care, we seek all of the necessary medical care they require. This medical care includes, but is not limited to, vaccinations and spay/neuter. Once all of the medical care is complete, we find loving families to adopt them and give them the lifetime of love they deserve.
CPR was formed in 2004 to assist unwanted pups and dogs with finding a new home. We rescue our pups from high kill shelters in TN, AR, MS, LA and TX. Without the dedication of the staff and volunteers of these shelters and without the assistance of CPR, the pups posted on our website would not be rescued. Before partnering with CPR, these shelters had euthanasia rates of 95%. We've reduced the euthanasia rate in all shelters by at least 50%. We rescue and rehome 200+ pups and dogs each month. We accomplish this task with the help of an awesome hard working and dedicated staff and volunteer base. Also helping us to accomplish what seems at times to be a thankless and overwhelming job is our pure and selfless love of dogs! We truly believe that rescue + rehoming = true love. <3
I volunteered at one of their events a couple months ago, and I had a great experience. This is a wonderful organization. The other volunteers were very friendly and the woman in charge got me up to speed very quickly. Even though I'm still learning about dogs, I felt like I was still able to contribute and help out right away. They had me do some dog walking (great workout) and I also helped potential adopters fill out paperwork. I plan to go back and help out again when I have some free time!
