Canine Cupids is a foster home based, all-volunteer dog rescue. This growing non-profit concentrates its efforts on Milwaukee’s homeless, neglected, and exceptional needs dogs. Since its establishment in April 2013, Canine Cupids has welcomed nearly 300 dogs and expanded to 50 active foster homes.

Founding President Lynn Allen has attracted a dedicated and committed leadership group with a wealth of rescue experience. Together, they designed an organization focused on dogs with the greatest needs, inter-organizational cooperation, and operational integrity. On those grounds, Canine Cupids has assembled a large volunteer network that supports all aspects of the organization.

Canine Cupids works closely with MADACC (Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission), identifying the dogs with the most significant needs or at the highest risk of being euthanized. Canine Cupids has removed dogs from a variety of situations and continues to consider dogs from other sources, but primarily and proudly chooses to work with MADACC. The number of remarkable dogs that have passed through Canine Cupids over the last 20 months are too many to count, and to isolate a single success is simply impossible. The organization has developed a reputation for taking the tough cases. It has seen unimaginable cases of mange, broken bones from accidents gone untreated, multiple ACL tears, heartworm infestation, and sweet bodies consumed by cancer. Canine Cupids measures it success daily, through the love and dedication of its foster families, volunteers, and resilient animals. Success comes with the foster family that turns into the hospice family and gives a dog the peaceful, loving end he deserves. Success comes with the outpouring on Facebook of cheers and tears when symptoms improve or surgeries are successful. Success comes with every “Love Story” picture posted on the website.

Canine Cupids is looking forward to a new year of new dogs, new challenges, and new partners. A significant focus for 2015 is to expand fund development efforts and broaden Canine Cupids’ public visibility. Securing Canine Cupids’ sustainability gives hope to the many dogs in need and the many families looking for their perfect companion.
