In Nov 2011 with your help we rescued our first foster dog Caroline. Since then we have stayed very busy rescuing, fostering, and finding forever homes for the dogs we love so much.
We will now cease taking in foster dogs and accepting donations. However, we will continue to work diligently as a rescue to ensure our remaining foster dogs are adopted. We plan to keep our Facebook page and our website up so that we can serve in support of other rescues and act as a venue in which to share critical information on animal welfare.
We are so very proud of our achievements, and grateful for having the opportunity to help so many dogs and families. We know that CCBTR's success is a result of the dedication of our volunteers and the support of our adopters, friends and fans. We thank you all very much and we plan to stay connected on social media so we can each continue to help the animals that need us!
Thank you for all YOU do for animals in need.
Roberta, Laura, Kathy and Rhonda.
The American Veterinary Medical Association uses the chart below to calculate age and we thought we would share it in hope that you would consider a mature dog for adoption.
So many senior dogs are overlooked because of their age. Many people still use that “old” calculation to translate a dog’s age in human years – 7 years of each actual year. Well, let’s recalculate!
Since smaller breeds tend to live longer than larger breeds, it’s important to calculate your dog’s age according to the right category: small (20 pounds or less), medium (21 – 50 pounds).
Age of Dog Small Breed Medium Breed
(Human Years) (Age In Dog Years) (Age In Dog Years)
6 40 42
7 44 47
8 48 51
9 52 56
10 56 60
11 60 65
12 64 69
13 68 74
So let’s look a little closer at our “senior” or “older” dogs. “60 IS THE NEW 40” ISN’T IT??
Dutch 7 years old (in human years) 47 years old (in dog years)
Louie 7 years old (in human years) 47 years old (in dog years)
Stella 8 years old (in human years) 48 years old (in dog years)
Bryce 9 years old (in human years) 56 years old (in dog years)
Holly 8 years old (in human years) 48 years old (in dog years)
ALL OF THESE DOGS HAVE LOTS OF LIFE TO LIVE AND LOTS OF LOVE TO GIVE. CAN YOU GIVE AN OLDER DOG A HOME? YOU WON’T REGRET IT. YOU WILL GET MORE LOVE THAN YOU EVER IMAGINED.

An important Message from CCBTR
CCBTR asks that you strongly encourage everyone you know to spay or neuter their pets. Even in spite of the best rescue efforts, it is impossible to ensure that all the homeless animals are rescued and adopted. PLEASE help the agencies in your local community raise awareness and provide low cost spay/neuter programs.
