As of early this morning, a Texas-based rescuer has passed away in their home. Unfortunately we don’t know how long he was alone with the dogs. There are a minimum of 50 dogs and we need to get most of them to the vet and out to breed rescues. Some of the dogs are in the Cane Corso Rescue program; others are not. We need funds for crates, bedding, food, health certificates for interstate transport and transports themselves
A CCR representative has already been in contact with police to get dogs out.
Dog breeds are Neos, Corsos, and Tibetans and there may be a few bull terriers.
The initial estimated fund is around $5000 but may go up as needed to get these dogs taken care of.
We will keep this page updated with additional details below as they become available.

4:45pm CST – We lost the older Corso. His chest radiographs looked horrible- fungal or bacterial infection everywhere- and the vet basically said “there is nothing we can do for him at this point”. RIP big boy
From our president:
“I need to add something very important!!! Dan would often take dogs that were given the diagnosis of chronic disease and The owners didn’t want to deal with them or the shelter was going to euthanize them. ￼He did not want them to die in the shelter, so he would take them and give them the best last day or two of their lives before he sent them over rainbow bridge. Dan never wanted them to die in the shelter alone. I KNOW in my heart that he was trying to do that for this dog, but instead Dan died first. Nobody knew who this dog was, not even Dan’s mom. So my guess is that he got him from a shelter just before he passed away himself. ￼￼”
