Give a Wag! Gives to Canton Shelters

Founded by Diane Aquino with the support of her family, Jade’s No Kill Rescue has been a labor of love since its inception in 2012. Working out of a dedicated foster network, this shelter has built a community of dedicated dog lovers firmly rooted in the No Kill mantra. This shelter promotes their mission of refuge and compassion by providing Canton residents with connections to resources they need in emergency situations like natural disasters or forced surrender. Adoptions are appointment only.

Paws Crazy is a small nonprofit serving Canton and other towns in Stark County through their expansive foster network. Committed to resolving animal homelessness, Paws Crazy works to provide vaccinations and desexing to all animals that come into their welcoming arms. They have adoption events frequently and host local fundraising events like the Spaghetti & No Balls Dinner or the Scotch Doubles Bowling Night. This rescue is a no-kill shelter, so space is limited.

Like the name suggests, Second Chance Ohio is a small rescue that strives to give dogs a second chance at life by placing animals in a loving foster home until they are adopted. Despite their limited capacity, this shelter has rehomed hundreds of animals since 1991. By fostering intimate relationships with adoptable animals, the passionate crew at Second Chance are able to provide prospective owners with all the details needed to create a match made in heaven and a happily ever after story.  Second Chance is a no-kill facility, and only take surrendered animals under very specific circumstances.
