Mission: Critter Crusaders of Cedar Rapids exists to provide and guide lifesaving advanced medical care for homeless or stray animals. We offer this service to shelters and rescues in the area to reduce euthanasia numbers and restore broken lives.

Much of our society considers homeless pets as disposable. Many are brought to us in serious condition from being neglected or abused. These animals would normally drain resources from a budget-conscious shelter and would be the first to be euthanized due to financial restrictions. This is where Critter Crusaders steps in to help. Through the life and limb-saving medical and surgical interventions we provide, our goal is to restore health and adoptability to the homeless animal population. Through the process of diagnosis and treatment, we work side by side with our veterinary partners to deliver the most comprehensive medical and surgical options available. These are the pets that have suffered the most and deserve a chance to be healthy and loved.

These people are so caring, giving and dedicated to making sure homeless, stray animals get medical care and forever homes. My husband and I went on the "Two Wheels Four Paws Poker Run" motorcycle ride. It was so well organized, we really enjoyed ourselves, and we were able to help out the animals at the same time. Win/win! http://www.crittercrusaderscr.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/CCM-Poker-Run-Reg.-Form_2016.pdf
