Chow Chow Rescue of Central New York is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 rescue group started in 2001 by Chow enthusiast Cindy Stone. This rescue was formed out of love for this unique breed and is dedicated to finding forever homes for pure-breed Chows.

Chow Chow Rescue of Central New York is not a shelter. It is solely based on help from our volunteers and foster homes. CCRCNY never places a dog with a bite history or one that shows any kind of aggression. We get calls every day for Chows in need of help. Unfortunately, we can not save them all but do our best to save as many as we can. The look on their face when one gets adopted is as good as gold to us.
If you want to adopt one of our Chows we do require that you fill out an adoption application. We ask $300.00 to adopt a Chow Chow from our Rescue which helps defray the cost of running the rescue. All dogs come up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and are spayed/neutered. We try to have all dogs groomed and micro-chipped but sometimes don’t have the funds to do so.
