Cause for Canines

Cause for Canines


Cause for Canines is a volunteer based all-breed dog rescue founded in Central Ohio.  We are committed to the rescue of homeless dogs, dogs given up by their owners due to difficult circumstances or those in danger of abuse or neglect, and dogs in shelters that are at risk of euthanasia.  Our mission is to find safe, loving, committed and permanent homes for the dogs we take into rescue.  All of our dogs are placed in foster care and receive any necessary medical care and treatments and are spayed/neutered and microchipped, while waiting for their forever homes.  Applicants are put through an extensive adoption process to ensure our dogs are placed in the best homes possible.  We also provide education to prospective adopters to ensure they have the tools necessary to provide appropriate pet care for their new forever friend.

We are a group of passionate animal advocates who are dedicated to doing our part to improve the rights of dogs everywhere.

Thank you for your interest in Cause for Canines and supporting us in our mission to help save dogs!
