Special Chrismas Adoption Notice
It is once again the time of year when we have to remind our new friends that Canine Crusaders has special requirements to adopt this time of the year. We hope everyone knows what a huge resonsibilty a puppy is. It is a 15 year (or so) commitment to a life! A life only you can make happy. That is why we do not allow gifting of our puppies. if you have been thinking about adopting and have given it the proper amount of thought for this commitment and are ready we would love to talk to you about adopting. The adoption must be done by the new family, mommy or daddy. All information must be that of the new adopter and the adopter must be aware of the upcoming blessed event. That is to say, no surprises! This does not mean mom and dad can not surprise the kids (since mom and dad are the primary care givers). If you have a special situation we can talk about it, but be aware that the puppies health and well being will be the primary concern of every placement Canine Crusadersany does.
Canine Crusaders is happy to be back at Terry's Pet Depot (1711 Rt. 10 East in Morris Plains) Saturday , It's not to late to come see and adopt your special new family member to share those cool nights comming soon. Please call to schedule a meet or with any questions you may have. Or just stop by Terry's and cuddle with a puppy!!
Our Director, Ellen, shows one of our placements, a little love before delivering her to her new forever home.
Red Bank Veterinary Hospital
Ronald L. Tisdale
Canine Crusaders was both proud and honored to be asked to say a few words at the Plaque Dedication Ceremony honoring Ronald L.Tisdale given by Red Bank Veterinary Hospital. Nancy Reselman (above left} made the very generous donation in her husband*s memory allowing the hospital to get a very needed C-arm imaging machine. Dr. Carl Sammarco (center left) used this machine to help locate and repair the hole in Cayenne's heart. Without this life saving surgery Cayenne would not have seen his first birthday last month. Ellen (far right) Director of Canine Crusaders with her husband Ed and lucky puppy Cayenne were glad to take part in this wonderful event. Fawna Mrs. Reselman's very adorable female Bull Mastiff doesn't seem very impressed with the whole thing.
A very special THANK YOU to Dr. Carl Sammarco without whom this very special dog may not have lived to see his first birthday!
As you can see Cayenne is doing great and is now 18 months old and 45 pounds. He is growing stronger and bigger every day. At this point he no longer requires any medication or special handling. He is just a perfect (Little?) boy!
We would like to change your life! Help you find a new best friend. We want to help you to realize the pleasure of helping to save a life and make your life much fuller and happier. We are a non-profit dog rescue, and we not only place homeless dogs and puppies but we make sure you and your new pet are a perfect match. We do a very careful screening of both you and your special new friend to make sure we can match you to a canine that will bring you years of happiness and provide a safe, loving, and healthy home. Our dogs and puppies are meant to be family pets. We don't allow our placements to be used as breeding stock or for any business or sporting uses. If you are looking for a best friend to share your life with and want to make sure you get the perfect fit for your home, please call our rescue and find out why we are ears and tails above the rest. When you speak to any of our placement personnel you will find them willing to go the extra mile to do anything they can to place that special dog or puppy in your home.
A few things you should know regardless of where you find your new family member!
1) No one can guarantee the size of your new puppy! The best anyone can do is make a estimation based on weight and size of parents, but genetics doesn't always work that way. If you have to have a special size you may want to get an older puppy or mature dog.
2) No one can guarantee their dog is completely parasite free! Pups do not shed parasites in every bowel movement! They should be tested and treated for anything found in their stool. If the parasite is in large numbers you will find it most times, but a small infestation can be missed!
3) Anyone who cares about their puppies should be willing to take the puppy back within a reasonable amount of time after placement. Why would anybody want their baby in a home where it doesn't fit? Also, you should have time to get your pup to a vet to be sure it is healthy.
Spay and Neuter policy.
We believe everyone should spay or neuter their pet. They will live a healthier life, however there is more and more proof that early age neutering and spay is not healthy. Our vet will not do this until a pup is 6 months of age. Many studies show doing this to very young puppies is harmful (even the AKC no longer believes in early neuter or spay). Please do your research as it is becoming more and more apparent and many rescues are now changing their ways. However our contract calls for any adopter adopting a young puppy to be required to do the neuter/spay at the proper age and before the first heat. Failure to do so will result in possible forfeiture of your loved pet. If for some reason your vet feels the baby has an issue and needs more time we will need a note from your vet along with his name and number. We follow up on every puppy placed. Controlling overpopulation is everyones responsibillity, Do not bring babies into this world to suffer a life of hunger and illness. Our goal is for your baby to live a healthy life and we look for responsible serious owners who share our vision and commitment.
Early neuter/spay is a complex topic, We recommend the site below as a good starting place as it seems to be unbiased. While this may be a good starting place it should not be the end, Check other sites but alway think if there is a bias involved for the site host. This is a long commitment and you are the one who must deal with your final decision.
Every little bit helps, thank you!
Canine Crusaders is a 501 (C) 3

New adoption days are happening every Sunday at our special home! You can find us at Katie's Pet Depot (416 Renaissance Blvd. Route 130, North Brunswick N.J.) the only place to find your new friend in time for a winter romance! If Sunday doesn't fit your schedule you can contact us to arrange to see our babies (no matter what age we think of all our charges as babies) by appointment. You can also contact us for an application so you can be pre-approved and pick up your puppy at the adoption day.This is the best way to see our puppies in one place because we pick them up from all our loving fosters for these very special days.
With the loss of our own beloved angel Beau our hearts have been aching for 5 months, After many tears and sad days we welcome our own new Baby Nava (Seen here below our Beautiful Big Beau). Nava is a 4 Month old Newfoundland. Nava will not only help to stop the ache in our hearts, she will be training to be Ed's new Service dog, a job Beau did so very well. Like Beau, Nava will attend our Sunday adoption days and continue to carry on the fine work Beau did showing big dogs can be gentle and sweet. Come meet this little girl, she is growing fast.
We would like to thank our wonderful fosters for all their help in housing and helping to place our little angels, without them there would be no way to continue doing the work we find so rewarding and needed. Thank you Michael and Grace. We would also like to give a big hug to Ellen our groomer who donates her time and talent to keep our puppies trimmed and looking their best!

This is the rescue's house mother Mimi. She keeps the older puppies in line and watches over our little ones. She is a 4 year old mini Dacshund and I (we) would be lost without her.
