Who We Are
Welcome to the official website of CANINE GUARDIANS FOR LIFE, INC! Incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 2003, to date we've rescued and placed over 650 dogs into loving homes in NH and surrounding areas. High-kill shelters in other parts of the country routinely euthanize millions of terrific companion dogs each year. One at a time, CGL rescues individual dogs from such facilities and rehomes them with loving forever families.
If you have room for a great new canine companion in your heart and your home, please browse our website for more information to learn how you can help through adoption, fostering, or donations. The more dogs we are able to place, the more dogs we will be able to save! So spread the word!
We're very proud of our new website and will be updating it frequently. Thanks for visiting, and please return again and again!
