Canine Adoption Network

Canine Adoption Network is a group of dedicated individual foster homes in North Georgia that work to better the lives of companion animals.

Welcome to Canine Adoption Network

As we take in strays, the hurt, the injured, the hungry, the afraid and lonely, the mistreated, and seniors that no one else wants, our vet bills are astronomical. We take as many as we can with the help of donations. We are 100% donor supported.

About Us

We are licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture to assist with homeless and/or abused animals. Canine Adoption Network is a group of dedicated individual foster homes that work to better the lives of companion animals. Our experience as animal rescuers, vet techs, and pet owners has given us first hand knowledge of the desperate plight of companion animals in today’s society. Our mission is to place the animals that we are able to assist in the very best possible homes, no matter how long that may take.

We are a Group of Foster Homes in North Metro Atlanta, GA.

All our dogs live in our nurturing foster homes and are socialized with other animals. They are not kept in kennels. All dogs are spayed or neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and on heartworm prevention prior to adoption.

Dogs come from various places, rural and Metro Atlanta animal control facilities, strays, the hurt, the injured, the hungry, the afraid and lonely, the mistreated, we take as many as we can with the help of foster homes and donations.

The post covid world we live in is causing a growing number of pet owners to abandon their pets and/or surrender them to shelters after going back to work and being required to be away from home.  Lots of owners are losing their homes or being forced into housing that doesn’t allow animals. We’ve seen where people have abandoned dogs in the home, we’ve seen dogs that have been surviving for weeks on toilet water, we’ve seen dogs that have either been chained up outside or left in the yard when the people have left, we’ve seen pets who are just set free to fend for themselves.

Consider that out of every litter of 7 puppies, 5 of them will have 3 different homes by the time they are 2 years old. Only 1 out of 7 will live in the same home for its entire life.

Please help by giving today.  Every dollar received goes 100% to the care and rehabilitation of the dogs.

Because We Really Care About Your Pets

Foster an Animal - Change Lives!

Fostering an animal means taking in and caring for a pet on a temporary basis, while the pet is waiting to be adopted. This includes daily care (feeding, socializing, exercising) and plenty of love! Fosters also attend adoption events. There are several different foster situations and types of fosters, with placements ranging from a few days to several months. Canine Adoption Network covers all vet care and flea and heartworm preventatives for our foster dogs.  If you would like more information on fostering a dog we would love to talk with you, please contact us.

Types of Fosters Needed

Canine Adoption Network focuses on several different types of fosters:
  • “Regular” or permanent fosters to care for pets on a shorter or longer-term basis, in preparation for them to find their forever homes
  • Temporary fosters to cover during holidays, vacations, and emergencies until permanent fosters can be found or return.
  • Single pet home fosters for animals that do better as a single companion rather than in a home around other animals.
  • Special needs fosters for animals that need continuous and/or special medical care or may be blind, deaf, or older and need more attention.

Your Help Matters!

When you get involved with fostering, you’re helping to save animals from overcrowded shelters and other life-threatening situations where hard decisions must often be made. And fostering is not just about meeting basic needs and giving animals a place to stay. A loving foster placement truly helps the pet: it reduces stress and improves their health and behavior, which in turn makes the pet more appealing to potential adopters. Do good in the world for you, the dog and their future family by fostering today.

Important Fostering Information

  • You must love dogs and have the ability to provide a safe, temporary home.
  • You must be at least 21 years of age and reside in the Greater Atlanta area.

  • You understand and can comply with your landlord’s and/or county’s guidelines about the number of pets allowed in your home.
