    - Wine has been around for centuries, and there are some health benefits to drinking a glass! Moderate drinkers have lower risks for liver disease, type two diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and some cancers. Wine has also been known to reduce “bad” cholesterol, or LDL, and increase “good” cholesterol, known as HDL.

    And a glass of wine won’t add to your waist line. According to Delish.com, a five ounce glass of wine has just 100 calories, and its fat-free and cholesterol free.

    So...Raise your glass and celebrate the day!

    About Canine Companions Rescue Center:
    Canine Companions Rescue Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation founded in 2004 for the purpose of working with the community and area animal control agencies to promote the adoption of dogs without families. It is our goal to rescue dogs with good family potential. If our adopters and our dogs are both happier after the match, then we've done our job!

    Our adoption fee for all of our dogs, regardless of breed, is $200 for adults and $275 for puppies. As part of this fee we will bring your dog up to date medically, including a spay or neuter. The adoption fee also includes a post-adoption vet visit with one of CCRC vets. For more details on what is covered, please see our Health Statement on the Adoption Application page. These services would run over $300 at the vet, so adopting a rescue dog makes good financial sense!
