Everyone always asks..."Who is C.A.R.L?"  

Canine Adoption and Rescue League (also known as C.A.R.L.) is an IRC 501(c) (3) Private Non-Profit No-Kill Organization. We rely on donations and do not receive government, state, or city funding. The rescue is operated almost entirely by volunteers. Since 1996, Canine Adoption and Rescue League has rescued and placed thousands of unwanted, sick, abandoned and homeless dogs. Dogs in our adoption program are placed in pre-screened, loving and secure homes. We make a lifetime commitment to all of our dogs.

Canine Adoption & Rescue Leagues Mission:

Canine Adoption and Rescue League's mission is to advocate for animal welfare. We seek to end the needless deaths of companion animals through our adoption, education, and outreach programs. 

 In 2005, C.A.R.L. purchased an operating boarding kennel open to the public and centrally located to the west of Santa Paula off the 126 Freeway.  The facility was re-named to C.A.R.L.'s Pet Care Center.  The two acre property includes a 2,400 square foot on site residence, 60 outdoor runs with concrete foundation and concrete brick houses, 30 indoor/outdoor runs with concrete flooring, 15 outdoor runs with concrete flooring and concrete brick sidewalls, 50 exercise yards and grooming facilities. The front acre of the property is the public boarding and caretaker residence. The back acre is the Burnice Kraemer Sanctuary for C.A.R.L.'s adoptable dogs that reside at our facility while they await a home of their own. C.A.R.L.'s Pet Care Center operations are overseen by the Canine Adoption and Rescue League Board of Directors.
