In 2023, we saved a lot of lives, thanks to our dedicated teams of fosters, volunteers, and staff. Thank you to every adopter who opened up their heart and home to a CDCK dog or cat. Together, we accomplished so much!

Humane euthanasia/deceased statement: CDCK follows the Asilomar Accords definitions of “Healthy,” “Treatable,” “Unhealthy &​ Untreatable.” CDCK is a no-kill rescue in that every medically and behaviorally “healthy” and “treatable” dog or cat that comes into our care will be saved. This means prioritizing safety and quality of life for both the animals and people in our community. Dogs and cats who cannot be rehabilitated medically or behaviorally are humanely euthanized. Our primary “euthanasia/deceased” counts are neonatal kittens who acquired disease at the shelter and could not be saved. ​

Lost in Care: Despite having training and safety protocols in place, on a few occasions a rescue animal has managed to break away from a foster family’s home. Even with a phenomenal volunteer lost animal recovery lead and team who employ extraordinary efforts, CDCK has not been fortunate enough to recover every animal who becomes lost from a foster home. These animals weigh heavy on our hearts.
