"Helping Mahoning Valley Dogs go from Lost to Loved since 1999"

Mission Statement

Canine Crusaders is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, primarily dogs from high-kill shelters and owners who can no longer care for them. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, trainers and boarding facilities, we are able to rescue countless dogs every year, provide them with loving temporary care and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. Our website also serves as a resource to our community and all pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet


CANINE CRUSADERS mission will soon be changing from a rescue to an organization that helps raise funds for rescues and shelters that would greatly benefit from monetary donations.

We still have several dogs in our care that are special needs and hard to adopt. They will always have a sanctuary with us and loved for the rest of their days if not adopted.

There are always fees incurred with caring for our remaining dogs, so Please consider making a tax-deductible donation towards medical care, food and boarding expenses. Any and all remaining proceeds will benefit other rescue organizations!

Our organization also assists out of area approved rescues & adopters to help save dogs from Mahoning Valley.
