Dearest Family & Loved Ones,
As most of you know, we have had the pleasure of helping in-need pups and families find each other for 11.5 years. We have enjoyed every single moment of this journey! You all are absolutely amazing. Whether it's liking/reacting to our goofball posts, or adopting a dog, fostering a dog, or donating to our cause.
We have been very fortunate to get to know so many amazing people, whether through adoption, fostering, vet care, animal welfare support, and community advocation.
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce our closure. This was a very difficult decision to make, but one that feels absolutely correct to do.
The reasons are many. We haven't been able to do a rescue transport in 3 years, we haven't had many adoptable dogs in nearly a year, and more. The BEST reason for us to close down is because we do not have dogs available for adoption - that is the one thing that every rescue will say is the greatest problem to have! You all have made it possible that these dogs find amazing homes.
We are heartbroken, but we are also optimistic for a future where we can still support animal welfare, but in a different capacity. It won't be under CaliCan, but it will still support animals in need.
We still have an immense amount of vet bills, so will be running some fundraisers over the next bit. Donations are still gratefully accepted, and tax receipts are still issueable.
We want to thank you for an amazing 11.5 years! We get to end on a high note of 793 dogs rescued. You all have been fabulous! We wish we had the opportunity to find the best fit for every family that applies, as you all are wonderful, but we just aren't able to do so. And that's great news for animals in rescue!
We love you all! Big hugs, chihuahua-nose-kisses, and please keep posted for our upcoming fundraisers.
