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!

Spotlight Canines



Beautiful, sweet Ghost is a wonderful Pit mix looking for a family to call his own. He is 1-1.5yrs old, 60lbs and does great with other dogs and kids. Ghost has moments when he will chase the cats in his foster home but never to harm. He sneaks to eat their food with them and sleeps in bed with a kitty every night.

Ghost is classified as "Special Needs" because he is deaf but that doesn't slow him down one bit. He still plays with other dogs just like any happy pup and enjoys being right in the middle of all the kids playing. Ghost loves to play ball and chew on his bones, he even loves to bounce on a trampoline!

Ghost MUST Have a 6ft Fence!

This stunning girl is Reign! Reign is a gorgeous white Pit mix who is about 2yrs old, 50lbs and deaf. Being deaf does not slow down or hinder Reign at all though, she is a happy, loving, playful girl. 

She has always lived with other dogs and loves to wrestle and play. Reign absolutely loves to rough house with other pups and is very outgoing. She also loves kids and just wants to be part of a family. Reign is already potty and crate trained which is always a plus!
