Located in Jefferson County, MO, Canines in Crisis is a non-profit rescue organization with a focus on crisis intervention. The organization is dedicated to assisting individuals and families who have lost their homes by providing an alternative to placing their dog into a high-kill shelter. People may have lost their homes due to many different crises, such as fire, flood, tornado or other disaster. They also assist military personnel who cannot keep their pet due to deployment, and elderly or handicapped people who cannot keep their pets due to temporary hospitalization. Canines in Crisis offers an alternative to placing these beloved pets into a high-kill shelter, by offering a loving temporary foster home. The eventual goal is to reunite the pet with its owner, thereby reducing the number of pets surrendered to shelters due to a temporary crisis.
If you’re interested in adoption, the Canines in Crisis website features pets available for adoption. All of their adoptable dogs are spayed or neutered, fully vetted, up to date on vaccinations, and have been wormed, microchipped, and tested for heartworm. If you are not able to adopt, there are lots of other ways to help. If you love dogs, you can volunteer to spend time walking, playing with and socializing the dogs in the shelter. You can volunteer to assist as their shelter events, or to become a foster home for a dog in need. You can make a tax-deductible monetary donation, or donate supplies such as dog crates, dog food, pet treats, dog toys, pet food bowls or other necessary pet supplies.
