Being Good Stewards.

Unlike other organizations, the Candusso Charitable Foundation is made up of 100% volunteers. Yes, you read that correctly. We believe in our mission of funding adoptions so much that our board of directors and all who work with us in achieving our mission are volunteers. This allows our organization to fund more adoptions.

Program Funding.

Our organization relies on the generous donations of the public to support our programs.  Donors may claim donations on taxes as tax deductible. Donation receipts are available upon request.
