White Crane Studio assisted animal rescue charities and saved thousands of lives from euthanasia.

Throughout the decade the White Crane Studio raised funds to rescued, rehabilitate and find homes for thousands of dogs and cats in the local community. Many of these rescued pets have found caring homes from Maine to Florida and many of the states in-between. All of these dogs and cats lives would have been terminated had it not been through the efforts of volunteers working with local shelters and Vet Adoptions.

How you can help!
To adopt go to or visit your local animal shelter and save a life.

Compassion and Kindness

The White Crane Studio works with Vet Adoptions and shelters to rescue animals off the streets of the city that face no other alternative but a slow painful death due to heartworms and diseases or euthanasia from local animal control facilities. We provide them with veterinary care, including spay/neuter, foster care and help to find them permanent homes. We are a no-kill agency that does not euthanize animals due to lack of space or time. We rescue animals that are in desperate need of being saved, such as cases of abandonment, abuse and emergency. We educate the public about responsible animal guardianship and the need to control pet overpopulation. We assist the public with care for their animals via financial assistance, training, or education.
