A Canine Gem is an all-volunteer, certified 501(c)(3) dog rescue organization dedicated to saving, rehabilitating and finding loving forever homes for neglected, abused, stray, abandoned and surrendered dogs of all breeds, ages, sizes, colors, abilities and health.

Our Goal:┬áTo make a positive difference in the homeless pet population, with specific focus on the “left-behinds” or “under-dogs” who inexplicably, and through no fault of their own, have been abandoned in high-kill shelters or left to fend for themselves on the streets. We concentrate much of our efforts on assisting senior and special needs dogs — sadly, these dogs face a much greater chance of euthanasia in shelters.

Our dogs primarily come from overcrowded and rural high kill shelters in the southern region of the United States. We also partner with local shelters and individuals as needed.

We carefully screen all prospective adoptive applicants in order to assure that each of our dogs is placed with an appropriate family with which that animal can find the happiness, security and love that he or she truly deserves.
