Canine Adoption And Rescue League
Santa Paula, CA
The Canine Adoption and Rescue League (CARL as we are known) has provided thousands of homeless and at-risk dogs food, shelter, life saving vet care, and loving forever homes for the last 22 years. Founded in 1996, CARL has helped dogs, who've been relinquished, abandoned, and often abused. Many of our rescues are from the Ventura County Animal Shelter (VCAS). Supporting VCAS helps them maintain their "NO KILL" designation.
CARL is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, all breed, NO KILL dog rescue. We are also a sanctuary for those dogs that do not get adopted, including a Senior Dog Rescue Program which provides food, shelter, and medical care for elderly dogs in the animal shelter that because of age and medical issues are least likely to be adopted. CARL relies completely on donations and does not receive any government, state or city funding; it operates almost entirely via volunteers.
