Inspiring Impactful Change


Help our longer-term rescues find their

new forever homes.

Some of our rescues from within our community need a little more time and help to become the perfect fur-buddy for a forever home. Our enhanced enrichment program provides individualized behavioral training and extra TLC to help them blossom into amazing forever friends. Your donations will allow us to expand our in-home visits and training and get them back into the community where they belong!

Thank You for Supporting Our Holiday Boutique

Please continue to help us by supporting us through your Amazon purchases by going to

Amazon donates a portion of the proceeds to us!



Countryside Animal Rescue (CAR) is a dedicated team with many years of experience working with all kinds of breeds of dogs.  The dogs in our program come from shelters or from owners that can no longer care for their dog.  Some come from the streets of Mexico.

Each dog is carefully evaluated and vetted. We are with these dogs everyday working with them and learning more about them. When we feel they are ready for a new home they become available for adoption.

Please read our Before You Adopt Page , then complete our Application.

Introducing Icarus !

Icarus is a very handsome, 1 yr and 3 mth old Chihuahua mix. His brindle coloring is stunning. He is good with other dogs and loves to play. He was in a home, but the cat was not thrilled with Icarus. Icarus just wanted to play, but the cat was not happy ! So, a home without cats is best. Icarus loves to go on walks, play with toys and at the end of the day, he loves to cuddle in your lap.

Strength had a rough start.


Pupdate:    Strength Wants to Be Your Valentine !

Strength has been in a foster home for about 2 weeks and is doing amazing. He has not had one accident in the home, so his is a champ at potty training. He doesn't try and jump up on the furniture. He is an amazing listener and plays well with the other two dogs in the home. This little guy wil be an amazing addition to your family. He is loving and cuddley and is patiently waiting for his new home.


Two days after he and his two siblings were left at our rescue they tested positive for Parvo. It took about 2 weeks of 24 /7 care to fight off the virus. All 3 pups recovered.  Due to the concern and hope they would pull through and the strength they needed to fight this horrible virus is how they were given their names.


Strength is kind hearted and gentle. His inner strength kept him fighting towards  recovery.  He loves to be with you and cuddle. He is a curious puppy, easily entertained with toys and loves playing fetch.  Strength will be an amazing addition to your family. He wants a family with someone home most of the time and who will take him on new adventures.

He is a 4 months old, Shepherd mix with beautiful brindle markings.
