Our mission is to save puppies born with a cleft palate, cleft lip and/or any other special needs.
We also aim to educate breeders, veterinary professionals and the general public about the care of these special babies and the happy full lives they can live after they receive this care. We don't see imperfections; we see a life worth saving!
CCPR founder, Mandi, began her life in rescue as a teenager. From saving feral cats to rescuing dogs off the street, she has seen a lot. All of which ignited a passion in her that could not be ignored. When her first cleft pup, Gypsy, was relinquished with aspiration pneumonia she fought so hard to survive. The impact she made would forever change the trajectory of our rescue story. And CCPR was born! Not long after, there was an expansion of the rescue to include Texas Cleft Pup Rescue, giving special needs pups in both states the chance they all deserve!
Countless puppies are needlessly euthanized just for being born with a cleft palate (or other birth defect)? CCPR and TCPR provides specialized care to these vulnerable pups! From birth they require tube feeding around the clock as well as other specialized medical care. We are a dedicated group of fosters who have made it our mission to provide quality care for every puppy we bring in!
We rely on donations to continue with our lifesaving mission. Without the generous contributions from our amazing supporters, we wouldn't be able to save and care for the countless puppies entrusted to us.
If it is on your heart to make a lifesaving donation to these brave pups, we have several ways you can help!
All donations are tax deductible.
