CRFCRC Rescue Information

The CRFCRC has asked regional shelters to contact us when they get a dog that resembles a Flat-Coated Retriever. Some of these dogs appear to be pure bred FlatCoated Retrievers and others are clearly a mix of several breeds. In every case, the dog needs a permanent or foster home in order to avoid being euthanized.

If you can either foster or adopt a dog, or if you would like to be notified about future rescue opportunities, please contact the CRFCRC Rescue Coordinator:

Janet Boss: (410) 750-7723
