I'd like to thank a very special person who, without his support, financial and emotional, the Creature Coalition would not exist. BILL, feeder of the masses, supreme pooper-scooper and hole-digger, chauffeur to countless animals, voice of reason, Heart of Gold--should every creature be so lucky as to have a friend like you. You are the absolute best of the best-----even if you are a cat person!!!


Who We Are
The Creature Coalition is a small, independent animal rescue effort. We take no salaries and receive no grant money--we're just people trying to help unwanted, abandoned and abused animals in our community. We have been doing rescue for over 20 years and have successfully placed many companion animals into loving, permanent homes. We attempt to respond to the most needy situations first. Some animals rescued and brought into the Creature Coalition exhibit health or behavior issues previously unknown or undiagnosed---for these special cases we turn to our sister group, the Crusty Cottage Sanctuary. The Crusty Cottage Sanctuary (for the multilegged elderly, infirm and psychologically whacked) is a lifelong safehaven for animals who, in all liklihood, will never find a forever home of their own. Some have chronic medical conditions requiring regular and sometimes expensive veterinary care, special diets and daily medications or treatments. Other have psychological or behavioral issues that prevent them from being a full, active member of a "normal" family. For a few Crusty Cottage residents, we are the first and only loving home they have ever had. Over the years, the Crusty Cottage has provided hospice care for many dogs and cats in the final weeks or months of their lives--comfy quarters, nutritional food, proper medical care and plenty of love until it's time to cross the Rainbow Bridge. We hope to honor the memory of those passed by opening our doors to others in need. In most instances, Crusty Cottage residents are available for adoption to "extra special" homes who understand their needs---don't hesitate to email us if you can provide for one of these "extra special" friends. We accept donations of any kind, however large or small, but please note that we are not IRS 501C-3 registered and donations can not be considered tax deductable.

Many of our rescues require expensive vetting. Please open your heart by donating toward their medical expenses-----donate securely using Paypal by clicking on their link below:
Adoption Process:
Please fill out our ONLINE adoption application. Once we receive your application, we will....

1) Check your personal references and vet references (process your application)
2) Conduct a brief interview by phone

5) Finalize the adoption contract;
6) Collect the adoption charge if applicable;

A Fenced yard and family member status is required for most adoptions. The Adopter must be age 25 or older. No 3rd person adoptions. Potential adopters please note that all animals in your household must be altered. We encourage you to visit your local animal shelter frequently when searching for a new pet. Feel free to contact us for help in finding that "special one." We will work with you to locate and rescue a pet not lucky enough to make it into a rescue group.
