Critter Cavalry Rescue

We are a group of dedicated rescue people who want to save as many dogs and cats from the local shelters before they are euthanized. On the average....there are only 1 out of 10 animals that get adopted from a shelter. We are dedicated to helping increase pet adoptions by offering a shelter animal a foster home to go to while awaiting an adoptive family to find them on our Petfinder website. Won't you please adopt a shelter animal? Or won't you please help us foster a shelter animal while we are looking for their perfect home? What a gift you can give a dog or cat by giving them a place to feel safe and secure....a forever home or a foster home. Won't you help us at Critter Cavalry give them a chance to have a life?

Charlese Trace is a strikingly pretty and very sweet beauty that has a docile way about her  that kind of makes you feel at peace just being around her.  When you look in her eyes you see a depth of emotion and some sadness because she knows just happened to her. What did happen in her life is one of those post COVID scenes where people are just up and moving out of a place they rent and their dogs and cats are left behind.  Our rescue world is seeing this crisis mushroom into an epidemic that is costing many dogs and cats their lives.  Charlese Trace was pure and simply abandoned. The kind landlord of the home where she was left, is caring for her temporarily but has a problem with her not being friendly to her cats.  She has been wonderful in the home and just as pleasant and well behaved as they come but the cat aggression has created a serious and urgent need to move this girl to a new foster or new forever home.  In all fairness, if she were a little Yorkie or Shih Tzu she would have no trouble finding an immediate home.  But since she is a 60 pound Pit mix girl who is 2.5 years old, she is having a tough time being placed quickly.  Even the shelters are refusing to take so many of the homeless dogs and cats in.  She is a wonderfully trained dog that is great with other dogs, children and housebroken.  She is being crated way too much in the current foster home because of the cats that lived there first.  The kind lady who took her in is exhausting all creative resources to try and bring Charlese to the attention of a good new home.  Someone that can appreciate her beauty inside and out.  This is a GOOD DOG!  Please consider her and the love that she can give to you!   Email us at [email protected] if you are interested.
