  • Help the K9CPRHAA save more animals by providing a temporary home to a dog in need so we can take in more animals from other shelters
  • Give love and affection to an animal that is so young that yours will be the first safe human interactions for that animal and will give a lasting foundation for human interaction to that baby.
