Bring Your Pups To Kanetoberfest

Did you know that our good furrends Second Chance Animal Shelter will be on hand with their pawsome mobile van to provide low cost rabies and distemper vaccinations? They will also be offering low cost 4DX (heartworm testing), microchips and heartworm preventative. Woweee!!! How excited are we?

We'll also have lots of pet friendly vendors, a dog show, dog demonstrations AND lots of great dog contests you can enter with your best furrend!

Great Volunteer Opportunity at Kanetoberfest!

How would you like to build a Kondo like this super new one that we delivered to Nova?

At Kanetoberfest we will be building Kondos for our dogs!!

We already have 4 teams of four to six people and are looking for one more team.

A team needs to raise $300, which is used towards the building materials and the C.A.R.E. Kit that will be delivered along with the Kondo. A C.A.R.E. Kit includes a heated water bowl, food treats and toys.

If you would like to participate please email us at

Thank you, Krusaders!!!


Here's our favorite chunky monkey, Goliath, enjoying a quick walk with his companion Gricel before she went out as a member of our C.A.R.E. Krew on Friday. Gricel is a great example of what makes Kane's Krusade different - our Pay It Forward component.

Did you know about 70% of the families who receive C.A.R.E. Kits volunteer in some form throughout the year? In this way, we are giving a hand up, not a hand out. We give people an opportunity to be a part of their community, to give back, to contribute, to be part of something bigger. And to say thanks. This is so critical. Everyone wants to be a part of something good.

Gricel has been a Krew member since June of 2014. She goes out just about every Friday, helps with translation, advocates for spay/neuter and does anything else we ask of her. She is an integral part of the Krusade and we're so grateful for her help.

Help! Help! Help! We are looking for Krew members!


Be a part of our team ‪#‎KeepingFamiliesTogether‬ ‪#‎OneDogAtATime‬ !!!

Volunteers go on home visits in teams of two, to deliver C.A.R.E. Kits of food and treats to our dogs.

Kane and Tess give big paws up to board member and Tenant Advocacy Specialist Paul J. Last week, Paul accompanied one of our families to housing court to offer his support and advocacy regarding a housing issue. John, a disabled wheelchair bound man, was facing having to move or give up his beloved 10 year old rat terrier, Princess. Princess is the love of his life and giving her up was just not an option.

Thankfully, with Paul's compassionate advocacy, the great news is... that John's case was dismissed and not only does he get to remain in his apartment, but Princess will continue to be by his side.

Thank you, Paul, for working so hard to keep families together, one dog at a time!

This is why we Krusade!

Your Donations at Work

This is Delilah. We have assisted Delilah's family off and on for the past couple of years. We spayed, vaccinated and microchipped her. When she needed some help with training, we provided some in-home sessions with her family. When her companion lost her job, we provided food for a time. We got a call that Delilah was vomiting and thanks to your donations, we were able to sponsor a vet visit to our good furrends at East Springfield Veterinary Hospital, where she received fluids and some medication to settle her stomach. We got an update that Delilah was doing much better today - all because you give, care and share!
