Canine Companions Rescue Center has been saved over 8,000 dogs' lives every year since 2004, and you are now part of that effort. Congratulations and thank you!
We know the information we provide at the time of adoption can be overwhelming, especially when you just want to get home to bond with your new best friend, so sometimes the information doesn't all sink in. Now that you've had some time (and hopefully have perused the information in the green folder we provided) we'd like to remind you about some resources we offer for free as part of your adoptions fee:
Vetting - We encourage you to take your adopted dog to one of our veterinary partners within one week of adoption for a free check up. In addition to an exam, any routine medical problems discovered during that visit will be treated and billed to us! You are always welcome to choose to go to another vet, but because of the costs involved and the discounts our veterinary partners provide, we can only cover the costs of services provided by our partners. This first, free visit can save you at least tens, if not hundreds, of dollars, so please take advantage of it! More information can be found on our Veterinary Care page.
Training - We offer several handouts about behavior and training on our website, and some of our volunteers have extensive training knowledge. Don't let small problems turn in to big frustrations! Make use of our online training resources, and if you are still having trouble, call us at (248) 834-9419 for advice. We will do our best to help make your adoption a success.
We have a Facebook page (we appreciate your "likes"!) and a Facebook Adoptees group (you must join to be a member). The Adoptees page is especially nice for keeping in touch with other adopters who adopted puppies from the same litter as yours, though any CCRC adopter is welcome to join and share pictures of, and stories about, their dogs.
Our E-blast is a great way to see what we're up to. We post our adoption numbers every quarter, as well as stories about dogs we've rescued and other useful information and tips. You can sign up by clicking the link at the beginning of this paragraph.
Please consider filling out a brief survey about your adoption experience with us. We want to be the best we can be and your feedback helps us know what we’re doing right as well as what we can improve.
Finally, we would like to remind you that we are only able to keep doing what we do through the generosity of people like you! If you are inclined to make a tax-deductible donation, no matter how small, or an ongoing contribution to our cause, donations can be made online via Paypal, or by postal mail to:
PO Box 1017
Clarkston, MI 48347
We love to hear from our past adopters so feel free to drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org (with or without photos!) any time, and again, from all of the humans and canines at CCRC, Thank you!
