In Memory of Sadie

02/05/2002 – 11/23/2016

I am making this donation for “Lindy”, to help her with the many vet visits and medications she will need.
My donation is in memory of my beloved Sadie.  Sadie was 14 when I had to make the heartbreaking decision to let her go. She had numerous medical problems, demadex, thyroid, diabetes, cancer. . . Her body grew weak and frail.  Sadly, I knew it was time.  Sadie had the best of everything.  She wanted for nothing. There was nothing I would not do for her.  She was my Puppy Girl for almost 15 years.  I love her more than words can say.  Always by my side, my constant companion, during some very sad times in my life.  But, I know she is pain-free, now, running around in the green grass near Rainbow Bridge waiting, til we meet again.  It is in Sadie’s memory that I wish to donate towards Lindy’s needs.  I know y’all will take good care of her.
Thank you so very much, CCR, for everything you do to help the helpless, neglected and abused.
You are truly God’s hands.

Love, Annette Kovar (Sadie’s Mom)

In memory of Fortissima Onyx T Rocko aka Rocko

6/27/06 – 12/25/16

Rocko was my neighbor Kathy Neal’s dog.  We called him the Mayor of King Drive (our street) because he loved and welcomed everyone.  Rocko was champion Cane Corso, but mostly he stole our hearts.  He will be missed.

Maude was as loved as any pup could possibly be.

Katherine Carr


In memory of Valorosa


I rescued her in March of 2008 from the Nevada SPCA in Las Vegas and had the pleasure being with her 24/7 until her passing. She will forever be terribly missed and deeply loved.

Love, Dad

Max was loved and cared for by Dan & Kim.  A life too short…

In memory of Brutie

1/10/06 💙 12/30/16

No better dog than Brutie. He was our inspiration to get a Cane Corso. I truly believe his Super Mom, Angela was the reason he was the best dog ever. She is a wonderful dog advocate and is a model for every dog parent.

Love, Fortés mom

In Memory of Mookie Gorman

2008 – 2016

Donors: Jason and Heathor Davis

Rebekah Maggart

December 28, 1976 – October 17, 2015

In 2009, Rebekah Maggart was approved by CCR and took on an abandoned, young Cane Corso pulled from an east TX shelter, as a foster dog. Rebekah and Porter were a match made in heaven from day 1!! Rebekah became a friend to CCR’s Director and often helped fundraise at events like Pecan St Festival in Austin, TX. Becky was never afraid to put a donation coat on Porter and trot him around for others to meet, greet, and donate. We were sad when she and Porter moved to Washington state about 2 yrs ago. However, Becky continued to stay in touch via FaceBook and helped us when we needed it in WA.

Sadly, Rebekah passed as the result of a tragic automobile accident on Oct. 17, 2015 while driving with her beloved dog Porter to the park. Porter survived the accident, with minor injuries. Becky will be dearly missed and remain in our hearts forever. Until we meet again, Becky…

“Rebekah loved her dog Porter and took him for walks and made sure he was well protected. He had a special padded area in the far back of her Jeep. I have seen many pictures and videos of him – you knew he was a family member. Becky was generous and always willing to help friends and strangers alike.”

– Elise Maggart, Rebekah’s mother

We have received generous donations to the dogs of CCR by family and friends of Rebekah Maggart.
