Canine Guardians For Life

Rating: 5 stars   1 review


245 North Main Street Wolfeboro NH 03894 USA


The organization assists animal shelters and other animal welfare organizations in the adoption of dogs to appropriate homes. In many instances, the dogs are transported from one region with excess dogs which would be euthanized to another area whee there is a shortage of dogs. The dogs are then provided with veterinary care are spayed or neutered. They are then held in a boarding kennel or fostter home prior to adoption. A representative visits all prospective adopters to ensure a proper home for the dogs. People adopting pay an adoption fee. Approximately 28 dogs were assisted in 2013 with 23 going to permanent homes.


Veterinary expenses - all animals are provided with veterinary care and are spayed or neutered.

transport and travel - many dogs are transported from one region to another by air. This expense category also includes mileage expenses for transporting dogs to foster homes and from foster homes to permanent homes.

foster care supplies and expenses - some foster homes bear all expenses for caring for the animals. Other people are willing to care for the animals but require some supplies or expense reimbursement.

I have worked as a volunteer for this group since 2003 and am thoroughly impressed with the dedication and commitment of the small group of volunteers who work tirelessly to place at-risk, out-of-state dogs in loving New England new homes.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've handled publicity and social media for the past 5 years. I've also provided other administrative duties. The e-mails we receive from our adopters is absolutely amazing. The dogs we have placed (over 450 to date) have loving and wonderful new homes, when only months before they faced euthanasia in over-crowded shelters.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand our foster base so that we could accommodate more dogs.
