Please bear with us as we are experiencing an increase in foster & adoption applications.




Overcrowded shelters take in millions of stray, abused, and lost animals every year. Not only do these animals give you unconditional love, but they have been shown to be physically, emotionally, and psychologically beneficial to their companions. Additionally, when you adopt, you are opening up another space for a rescue or shelter to help another animal in need.  



Not ready to adopt? That’s okay – You can still help! Fostering is a great way to help without the commitment. East Coast Canine Rescue is a 100% foster based rescue. Our dogs are saved from high-kill shelters as well as situations of abuse and neglect.  We believe every dog deserves a home; therefore, our dogs are immediately placed in foster homes where they are loved, cared for, and provided a home where they can let their personality shine. 


Volunteers are an integral part of East Coast Canine Rescue Inc.  We are always looking for friendly, dynamic, dog-loving people eager to help get our deserving dogs find loving homes. We are consistently looking for volunteers to help in our many departments: Transportation of dogs to events and foster homes, Home Visits, Photography, and Adoption Events. 

Volunteer of the Month: 
Lauren Fauchon


For those of you who may not know Lauren well here is a little in-site to the person she is. Lauren is married to a wonderful women named Danielle ( another ECCR volunteer). They reside in CT with their 2 ECCR doggies. Both of their dogs were mom dogs that gave birth in south. They were very difficult placements with multiple returns. Each time we tried to match them in a home and it didn’t work out Lauren and Danielle never hesitated to take them back in. Finally realizing they had their home with them. Lauren is a selfless person with multiple hours of volunteer service to ECCR. She has done hundreds of home visits throughout CT and has helped with applications. Most recently she has been the Chinese litter step mom coming to my house daily at noon to bottle feed. She has helped out in transportation days and countless vet appointments. She is at all events work permitting and creates and prints off all the dogs pictures to be hung around pens and on tables to help inform potential adopters of whom is available for adoption. Her loving and caring doesn’t stop with the dogs. She is also an active Army National Guardsmen. She is part of the 192nd MP ( military police) unit. She is ranked as an E6 staff sergeant and awaiting her promotion to E7 sergeant first class !!! Amazing and so proud, I know we all have the upmost respect for our military personnel. 

Today we all wish you a safe tour and quick return home to all of us who love you.

Thank you for your endless commitment to ECCR, all the doggies you help save and our Country GOD BLESS AMERICA
