Adoptable Pet List


Cross is a 1 1/2 year old male Shepherd/Lab mix who was given away on Craigslist then abandoned at a boarding kennel. This sweet boy has not been in a home since he was a small puppy which makes us all extremely sad. His two closest friends at the kennel have both gone to new homes, leaving him confused. He desperately needs to be in a home environment before he gets any older. He loves, loves, loves playing with other dogs and MUST have another dog in his home so he can learn from them...medium to large in size who also likes to play. He's used to walking on a leash, but really needs a fenced yard as well. Cross weighs around 55 lbs and is full grown. He's vaccinated, neutered and also microchipped. He's never been around children, so no kids under 12 please. If you can please foster Cross or give him a permanent home to show him what a home is truly like, email

Who We Are

Canine Crusaders of Atlanta is a non-profit, no-kill rescue organization. We rescue dogs who've been discarded, abandoned, neglected and abused and match them with their forever home. We also assist others in finding homes for their dogs who are unable to keep them and try our best to keep them from being turned in to the shelter. Our focus is to find responsible and loving homes for every dog that enters our program. We have a lifelong obligation to each dog that comes to us and we do our absolute best to make the best possible placement, matching each dog with the right home.

Adopting a pet

We only adopt in the metro Atlanta, Ga area and do not adopt out of state. We conduct home visits prior to each adoption, which we find is a crucial part of the adoption process. Once an application has been submitted and is approved for a dog, a home visit is done. All dogs go out for a 2 week trial period. If the trial period is successful and all parties agree this is the right home for the dog, then the adoption will occur. Adoption fees are $250 which includes spay or neuter, all vaccines, heartworm test, de-worming and microchip. All homes with children must have a fenced yard.


Donations are always needed to help offset our expenses, which include vet bills and as well as boarding bills. Some dogs live at boarding kennels or vet offices until a foster home is found. Additional expenses include supplies such as crates, collars, dog food, as well as flea and heartworm prevention.

Foster Homes

Foster homes is one of our biggest needs in rescue. Without a home to stay in, these dogs either get turned away or have to go to boarding. Foster homes provide a safe a loving home as well as food and we provide all vet care, as well as monthly flea and heartworm prevention.


We are always in need of dedicated volunteers who can help out with our adoption events on the weekends. Contact us for more info.

Surrendering a Pet

Please email us if you need to surrender your dog. We may be full at the time but we CAN help you find a home for your dog by posting them on our website, allowing them to come to our pet adoptions and helping screen applications as well as do home visit prior to adoption. If you want to give up a pet dog to behavior problems, please reconsider giving up your dog. Behavior issues can usually be resolved with training, time and patience and we can refer you to trainers to help you resolve those issues.
