COCO’S HEART DOG RESCUE
WHO WE ARE
Coco’s Heart Dog Rescue is an effort grounded in love, dedication and determination. The dream of establishing this rescue started back in 2000 when a very special dog, Coco, passed away unexpectedly at age 5. The loss inspired Coco’s owner, 12 year-old Ashley, to save other canine friends in his name. Ashley and Coco had been the best of friends and it is in his name that this endeavor lives on….
In late 2009, the dream started to become a reality. Now a nonprofit organization, CHDR is 501 (c)3 status. State of Wisconsin licensed and inspected: 400340-DS. CHDR rescues dogs in need without discriminating against breeds or ages. The rescue operates with the help of hundreds of dedicated volunteers, all working toward the common goal of saving the lives of dogs in need, and giving them the love they deserve. We are foster based out of the Twin Cities, and we hold events in the surrounding areas. Every dog that comes to Coco’s Heart receives the highest quality veterinary care and a loving temporary home from dedicated foster families. CHDR’s adoption process ensures that every dog goes to the most loving forever home.
Coco’s Heart Dog Rescue is a primarily volunteer-driven organization that welcomes dogs to rescue from unfortunate situations and houses them in volunteer foster homes while preparing them for adoption placement. We focus on evaluating each dog’s needs, provide high quality veterinary care, and work towards finding them a life long match with an adoption placement. We strive to educate our community on the importance of rescue, our specific rescue efforts, responsible pet ownership, and the difference each person can make on the lives of dogs in need.
“Angel’s Pet World has made an incredible impact on our rescue efforts. They are very supportive by hosting adoption events, adoptable dog showcases, birthday parties and fundraisers to help benefit our rescue. They help in countless ways and always do so from a place of genuinely caring for our dogs and their well being. We love Angel’s Pet World!”
