Kane's Krusade

We prevent the surrender of dogs to shelters through the distribution of Canine Assistance, Resources and Education (C.A.R.E.) Kits containing food, equipment, vaccinations, spay/neuter, vet care and dog training. Our Tenant Advocacy program helps people find dog-friendly housing, obtain emotional support dog certification where appropriate, and assist with eviction notices that are specific to the family dog. We also design and build custom insulated dog houses called Kondos. These dog houses are loaned to dog owners who cannot afford a proper dog house and whose dog must remain outside for some portion of the day. We reinforce and comply with Massachusetts animal welfare and tethering laws.

We are the only animal welfare organization in Western MA that brings services directly to people in their homes. Many of our people are disabled, elderly or don't have cars. By going to their homes, we establish a rapport and generate good will. We proved dog training in the home. This empowers us to identify other issues that may be contributing to behavioral challenges. Our families must receive some form of federal or state assistance. Our families are the elderly, disabled, veterans and others living on fixed incomes or unemployment.

Kane's Krusade utilizes a unique Pay It Forward system. After 6 months of receiving services, families must Pay It Forward through a variety of volunteer options as they are physically and mentally able. 85% of our volunteers are family members.
