Who We Are

Critical Pet Rescue is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to providing placement services to displaced animals in the Southern Oregon area.

C.P.R. was founded with the desire to provide placement services for the increasing number of pets abandoned at county shelters and those needing re-homing in the Southern Oregon area. We are open to taking in animals from outside Oregon as room is available, and based on a case by case basis.

C.P.R. operates with a “Safe Haven” policy in accepting animals for re-homing. Animals are placed in foster homes where they are cared for while awaiting their forever home.Β  Animals will be up to date on required vaccinations and all animals of age are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, unless they are too young at the time of adoption (or confirmed a health risk by a veterinarian). If they have not been altered by the time of adoption due to a young age, arrangements will be made with adopter to have it done and follow up will happen to be sure we are not adding to the pet over population problem.

The founders of Critical Pet Rescue each came to the group with their own personal skills as related to the rescue and re-homing of displaced pets. Some with years of experience in rescuing and re-homing pets, most with experience in fostering at need animals. Some with a history in the animal shelter system.Β  Above all, the founders came together as a group of individuals with the same goal of helping at-risk, in-need pets find their deserved chance at loving forever homes.

  1. CPR is a WONDERFUL group of people and I am SO glad that I met them and continue to work with them. They truly care about every animal that comes into their rescue. I seriously love each and every one of them. You guys are great! I look forward to working with you again.

  2. Thank you Jacqueline, we feel the same way about you and your rescue. You too have a heart that truly cares and I’m sure we will be working together for a long time!!

  4. Hi, awesome work. I’ve lived in GP for 5 years and in so surprised I’ve never heard of you guys. I was wondering do you guys even get tortoises that need loving forever homes? Or is is just furry friends?

    1. Thank you Anna we just started officially in Jan of this year. We are very new even though several of us have been unofficially rescuing animals on our own many years collectively. We haven’t had a tortoise come in yet but I’m sure we would take one in if needed. πŸ™‚

  5. Hi there! I have been trying to reach someone about Beanie! Is this the right place? I am not on facebook so I left a couple of messages at the phone number shown. I haven’t heard anything yet and I’m worried I might lose the chance to offer him a new home. Does Beanie still need a home? Would you let me adopt him if I live 250 miles away? I would love to talk with someone about him! THANK YOU!!

    1. Beanie is still with us and I will be emailing you about him. I am so sorry that we have not responded to your call. Not sure what happened with that but will check up with it.

  6. We are so pleased that you are enjoying your new kitten. We hope you will have many years of purrs and fun ahead.

  7. I am interested in finding a dog thats is great with kids and will alert me if anyone comes into the house or knocks. Not looking for a gaurd dog just one that will bark if ppl come into the house. How do i see what you have available?

    1. Hi Larry…so sorry that we aren’t updated here yet. Do you have Facebook? You can find us there and pictures of all the dogs we have available. We also have Felines but they don’t bark. πŸ˜‰ I have a 7 month old pup that I’m fostering that is making quite a nice alert dog. She is friendly but being a pup might knock down small kids. Her name is Macy. Let me know if you can’t get on Facebook and I will email you some pictures of our animals.

  8. So my mom is part of C.P.R. and I just love all the animals that come through to us. I hope this group stays a thing for longer than I can imagine.

    1. Thank you Eric! We love that your mom is a major part of CPR and we couldn’t do it without her or your family! It takes a lot to care for some of the animals we get and you all help them get well, get socialized and also fear less. You are all amazing and I’m sure we will stay together for longer than you can imagine! πŸ™‚
