Emergency Vet Care Fund

We are seeking your support in raising $10,000 to put into a special "Emergency Veterinary Care" fund. This fund will assist puppy raisers when costs for vet care exceed what they can reasonably absorb themselves. Veterinary care that goes beyond the typical vaccinations, spay/neuter, heart worm prevention, etc.

Our puppy raisers are SO amazing and Canine Angels Service Teams couldn't exist without them.  Please help in making these emergency veterinary funds available. Make a "paws"itive difference...donate NOW!

Send your tax deductible donation by mail, or click here to make a secure donation online.
Welcome to the Pack!
Superhero Girl

Since our last newsletter, we've welcomed many more pups to the Canine Angels team. All puppies who have entered our program this past year have been gifted to us by incredibly supportive breeders and sponsors. We send a heartfelt thank you to all!

The Superhero Litter!

Service Dog Eye Exams

The ACVO/StokesRx National Service Animal Eye Exam event is a philanthropic effort generously provided to the public by participating board certified Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists who donate their time, staff and services to provide complimentary screening eye exams to qualified Service Animals. Over 30,000 animals have received these free screening exams over the past seven years.

Canine Angels asks for all puppy raisers to schedule a free exam for their pups, and we highly encourage all working teams to participate in this program every year. Registration begins April 1st, closes April 30th. Examinations are May 1-31st.

Fido Fun Fest Update

Last Fall, Canine Angels held its 8th Annual Fido Fun Fest event in Irvine, CA. It was another fantastic day with our highest attendance yet! 

Open to the public and their pet dogs, attendees were able to enjoy vendor booths, a food truck, a free 
photo booth , and participate in fun
  contests with their dogs. T he  costume
 contest had some great contenders! Our supporters  also got to go trick-or-treating around the event to fill up their goody ba gs with treats and products for themselves and their pets.
A huge thank you to our wonderful event sponsor and photographer, Kimberly Olbrich! A link to her photo album of event photos is on our Canine Angels Facebook page. We would also like to thank Debra Jo Chiapuzio and Emma Zen of the Emma Zen Foundation for their wonderful and informative Pet First Aid demonstration. 

Thank you, Dutch Bros!

In December, Dutch Bros.Coffee sold dog leashes and bandanas in 15 of their Southern Oregon locations on day 7 of their "12 Days of Christmas" campaign. All proceeds supported CAST! Our Canine Angels team was on-hand at many of the locations to say hello as well.
