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


Vicki is the heart and soul of ECCR. She works endlessly to advocate for all dogs 24/7. She is the one that pulls them to safety, sets up transports, organizes all vetting, finds foster homes, and finds forever homes for every ECCR dog. On top of her endless volunteer work for ECCR, Vicki works to maintain her full time job, family, and 5 fur-babies. To say she is devoted is an understatement! She is Wonder Woman, a superhero, a mentor, a friend, an inspiration to all, and the leader of ECCR.
