Canine Outreach Care and Rescue helps pay medical expenses for dogs

Canine Outreach Care and Rescue is a local nonprofit dedicated to helping families pay for emergency veterinary expenses if their dog becomes injured or sick.

COCR was founded based on the belief that all animals are entitled to great veterinary care, even if their family does not have the financial means to provide this care.

The founders of COCR have experienced many devastating injuries with their own dogs — including two back surgeries, cancer, and one unfortunate encounter with a truck — so they understand how these injuries affect families firsthand.

COCR is currently funded by Custom Body Fitness in Carbondale, and donations are accepted as well.

COCR has partnered with North Fork Veterinary Clinic in Paonia, and the founders prefer that families seek the services of owner Dr. Vincent. They say he is extremely honest, humble, ethical, knowledgeable and, most importantly, very caring. He is truly passionate about helping animals, and it is apparent to anyone who takes their pet to see him.

COCR determined to help families in need. They can contact COCR directly at 970-589-6540, or by referral from Dr. Vincent. Visit COCR on Facebook to learn more and find out how to donate.
