I can't speak highly enough about CCPAL. Their application was thorough and diligent (as you would hope) but at the same time they were very efficient. I was looking to adopt in time to surprise my son for his birthday and only had a few days to make it happen. (We do not live in Texas but he found the puppy online, which in itself is pretty cool!) They did a remarkable job of processing my application, approving it, and facilitating picking up the puppy in perfect time for the surprise. They really jumped through hoops to make it happen and the outcome was perfect. My son LOVES, LOVES, LOVES his puppy and he is the perfect addition to our household. He is the cutest guy in the world with an awesome personality ... it was simply meant to be and we owe it all to CCPAL. The post-adoption follow-up has been great, too. They stay in touch with us, and we with them, and we really were made to feel like a welcome part of the CCPAL family. Thank you to Sandra, Alice, and all the folks at CCPAL!

We heart CCPAL! After nearly a year of conversations, our landlord gave my wife and I the go-ahead to adopt a dog and we got right to trying to make this happen. We applied online to adopt Dixie on Christmas Eve 2020. I don’t think we would have adopted a dog from Texas (we live in NY) without seeing the video CCPAL had posted about Dixie where we could see how lovable she was! From the video we could also see how the CCPAL team really gets to know what is special about each dog and how much care they give their dogs. The CCPAL team started reaching out to us about our application two days after we applied (and did I mention we applied on Xmas Eve?). By the next day, they'd talked to our references and landlord and us. We heard about how Dixie and her mom and litter-mates had all been rescued from a hoarding situation. We made a plan to adopt Dixie. We just could not wait to meet her, so we called back to ask if there was any way she could be transported to us sooner. CCPAL amazingly made this happen, so we got to meet Dixie a couple weeks earlier! The CCPAL team were super responsive to questions we had as we were preparing for Dixie’s arrival, like about what size crate to buy. They gave us very clear guidance on meeting Dixie’s transporters (another organization, who are also awesome!) and tips on things like housetraining and making sure we kept Dixie warm when she got up here. Maybe knowing how excited we were to meet Dixie, they even sent us a video of another dog that also featured Dixie. When we met Dixie (whom we now call Trixie) and over our four weeks with her, it’s clear just how much love she got from the CCPAL team. She was mostly wee-pad trained by the time she came to us. Dixie/Trixie has brought so much joy into our lives and we can’t recommend CCPAL highly enough!

Our experience with this rescue was fabulous. I live in Quebec Canada and when I was shown Reese's picture it was love at first sight. I really appreciated their vetting style. They asked many questions, wanted references and called my vet. I only wish they did that where I live.
It is so important babies get into loving homes. My girl was transported all the way from Texas to Vermont where she was picked up by a good friend of mine and brought to the USA, Canadian border to meet me. The exchange was made made easy by the kind border staff. She was very timid at first but has gained her confidence and is a great friend to her older sister Teagan. She loves playing in the leaves, water, snow and loves people and other dogs. Not a mean bone in her body. I am so glad I was chosen to bring her into ours lives. Thank you .

We got our pup Tino a couple months ago and CCPAL has been amazing every step of the way! They were extremely responsive in the beginning stages which was a contrast from other rescues we had previously been interested in, and once we adopted Tino, they are still responsive to this day. An amazing rescue, we can’t thank them enough for bringing our best friend into our lives!

We adopted Hazel (formerly Comanche) back in September. CCPAL made the process so easy & we can’t say enough good things about them. They were very responsive & it really made the process seamless. This was the first rescue that was coming from TX directly to us. Hazel immediately fit right in with her puppy sisters. She honestly is the sweetest pup & we can’t imagine life without her! Thank you CCPAL for everything you do!

After a long search, we were so happy to have found our new puppy with CCPAL. At first we were hesitant to adopt from far away, but the volunteers were patient and attentive with all our questions, and have been supportive throughout the whole process. Our puppy arrived healthy and well socialized. You could tell she had spent lots of time with people and other dogs. I'm so grateful for the wonderful work these folks are doing!

Sandra and Alice of CCPAL were tremendously helpful in making it possible for us to adopt these two sweet brothers.. The process was seamless but they did their due diligence to be sure that their charges ended up in a home that understood the responsibilities of having pets in the family. We are thrilled that Finn and Dio (formerly Austin and Hondo) have come to be members of the Wilson family!

CCPAL has been a huge part of our lives for the past five years. We’ve adopted three beautiful dogs and had another adopted by our extended family. The love and dedication CCPAL has and shows for the charges in their care is truly amazing. Our babies may have had a rough start but CCPAL gave them the care, attention and most importantly, love to help them overcome the challenges. And that is why CCPAL is so special. They persevere to help those animals who would otherwise know only hardship. CCPAL are truly the “better angels of our nature”.

CCPAL is an organization whose dedication to animal rescue is second to none. This small rescue in the heart of Texas has saved the lives of hundreds of animals and in doing so, have touched the hearts and lives of people like us all over the country. Although we reside in NJ, over the years our family have adopted four beautiful pups, whose impact on our lives has been incredible. They are a true testament to the love, dedication and commitment CCPAL brings to the noble cause of animal rescue and rehabilitation. Furthermore, their efforts have built a country-wide family of adopters, extending from coast to coast ❤️

Nov. 2019 we adopted Jack. We were extremely nervous about the situation, we never adopted a rescue, and living in Wis. Jack was coming from a far and we didn’t get to meet him. CCPAL was great, they answered many questions, very organized and the people that delivered Jack were just as kind. Jack met his little sister Bella as soon as he got into our car. We hike, camp with the dogs/ horses, take many car trips and kayak . Jack has been a true blessing for us and we thank CCPAL again for the great work they did for a smooth transition.

My husband & I started the process of looking for another dog to add to our family and knew we wanted to adopt if possible. Our local adoption agency rarely has dogs so we started looking elsewhere. CCPAL was incredibly responsive and helpful. You can tell their dogs are well taken care of and that they are passionate about what they do. It took a few months, but we were matched up with a dog and from there the whole process was smooth. I appreciate that they take the time to get to know you a little bit and check references so that they can ensure the pups are going to good homes! We couldn't image life without our little lovebug. She is so cuddly, sweet, and fit into our family perfectly.

Everyday I’m so grateful to have adopted from CCPAL! They helped me find my new best friend, in the easiest way possible. They connected with me quickly after my application to adopt Scooter, and they did such an amazing job caring for him!

During transport to me from Texas to Washington, Scooter developed a runny nose and they connected with me INSTANTLY and overnighted anti biotics and checked on him to make sure he was taken care of.

They are so compassionate and great at what they do! If I decide to rescue another little angel, I will definitely go through them!

Woof-Woof! CCPAL is where you will want to get your next fur baby from ! It is the organization that you will want to volunteer with and to donate money and /or other resources to ! Why? CCPAL genuinely cares about the dogs they take in and their thoughtful placement of each and every animal is what they are great at! They sometimes have to hold onto the dogs a long time until the perfect human/dog match can be found. It's totally awesome to witness this behind the scenes and as volunteers, we do.

Not only do we volunteer with this organization, but CCPAL is where we got our dog from about three years ago. (big smiley face!) He had been hit by a car and had some leg/foot issues that they were working with a local vet to heal. During our search, we were so lucky they really listened to what kind of dog we wanted and matched us to one that was still in the process of healing and not even available yet.

We feel like we have the best dog in the world but we realize that there are probably a lot of other families who have adopted from CCPAL and feel the exact same way about their fur baby. If you are looking for a dog, CCPAL is your go-to. They transport dogs to many areas of the US and Canada! If you are not looking to increase your family size right now, you might just consider a donation as they are really and truly helping the doggies!

I volunteer with CCPAL Rescue remotely, all the way from Canada! Having adopted from Texas myself, I already had so much respect and admiration for what this organization works so hard to do, and I was honoured and excited to become a part of it. The individuals at CCPAL work tirelessly to care for the animals they rescue, and their great rewards come from the photos of the adopted pets living dream lives as beloved family members all over the United States and Canada. They make magic happen each and every time a once homeless pet lights up the life of the person or family that falls completely in love with it. Their joy is contagious and it is a privilege to be a part of these dreams coming true!

I got my dog from CCPAL and we couldn't have had a better experience.
They had a very detailed description of my pup's personality that was dead on.

They pulled our dog from a local shelter that euthanizes due to overcrowding.
We are so happy to have found this organization and that they saved our sweet pup.

We adopted Barkley in March 2018 From CCPAL. He arrived here in Washington State May 3 2018. I first saw him on Adopt A Pet, fell in love with him and knew he belonged here with us. The communication with them was great during the course of the adoption and all ran smooth to get him here. The staff were so good to work with. Barkley has been such a wonderful addition to our house and he has the sweetest, most affectionate personality.

I first found CCPAL through a listing they had for a Husky (Parker). I had two already and was looking to add a third. I was particular in what I was looking for as I had to ensure that they would fit into my pack. Not all rescues are the same and you truly have to experience the bad before you know what is good. I was so glad I found CCPAL. After filling out the adoption paperwork and speaking with a few team members, they decided that my home would be a good fit. Unfortunately, just before transport, Parker escaped the enclosure and was never found. All CCPAL members were heartbroken as they desperately tried to find him. Afterwards, they made it their mission to find the perfect new addition for me. I must say, they were successful. They found Ranger in a shelter, and after speaking with the shelter representative, Rachel, they started the process of evaluating him to ensure he would be a good fit. I couldn't be happier with my little cuddle-bug. He plays with my other two wonderfully and we have started sledding for fun. I will eventually adding a fourth pack member and I will be looking to CCPAL for assistance in making that happen. They truly care about placing their dogs in the perfect home. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new fur baby to add to their family.

We had a wonderful experience in working with CCPAL when looking for a dog to adopt. I happened to see a dog I was interested in on a pet-finder website and we immediately contacted them to see if the dog we wanted was still available. She was, so we provided some references that they contacted and set up a phone call to discuss if the dog was the right fit for us. We know they called our references and they had good questions to make sure it was a good fit, they definitely did their due dilligence. The transportation to get the dog from Texas to us all of the way to Washington did a great job and provided updates along the way. We've provided updates on how she is doing, and they are always interested and excited that our dog has found such a loving home. We are so thrilled to have worked with CCPAL and would again in a heartbeat.

CCPAL was amazing! I was looking for a puppy and came across them. They were efficient and helpful when it came to adopting "Cap". They sent her to me healthy and happy and very cuddly. I am so grateful to them for letting my adopt my best friend! I am constantly talking about where I got her from because she loves meeting people and is super friendly with other animals and I think CCPAL is to thank for that! I was truely amazed with them and the fact that they were able to get her to me in New York from Texas! Thank you CCPAL!
