A LITTLE ABOUT THE SHELTER

     Located in Fountaintown, IN, near Southeast Indianapolis, in Shelby County, 25 minutes from downtown, and 20 minutes from Greenfield, and minutes from Shelbyville!


     Canine Castaways Rescue, INC is an independently operated facility that focuses on saving our castaways (all are welcome), young and old, in poor health, and regardless of condition. We specifically locate animals at kill shelters and that are next in line. We rehabilitate them if needed and we go through an extensive adoption process to find a fitting permanent home. As mentioned on the home page, we are 100% non-profit and a 501c3. We are always looking for donations and volunteers for weekdays and weekends.


    If interested in donating or volunteering, please see our donation and volunteer page! If you have any questions or would like to speak with a staff member please send an email via the contact page or give us a call! If you have a medical emergency, please call your local animal hospital. We DO NOT have a medical staff at our location.


We're expanding and we need everyone's help to make our dreams come true! 

Adoptable FRIENDS

CICERO – A lovable boy!  Cicero is a very sweet boy who loves people.  He enjoys playing in the water too!

DUCHESS – A beautiful girl!  She is smart, sweet, and loves walks.  Young children make her nervous, so she needs a home with no children under 10 years.  

Vinny – Vinny is an old soul. He was chained out his whole life. He's deaf, so no small kids.  He does know some hand signs. He's just a simple, laid-back, senior fellow who will be there to greet you when you come home from work.
