We rescue animals from local shelters and the streets that may or may not be adoptable. We spay and neuter every animal that comes into our rescue, as well as shots and other necessary vet care. Some of them need additional medical attention. We work with local vets to see that all their needs are met.​​​​​


We appreciate all the support we received in 2017! We are putting out one last push to help with some heartworm positive dogs needing your help.

Thanks to the generous support of our donors in 2017, we have been able to save nearly 150 pets this year alone and 2017 isn't over yet! 

Although most of our dogs have been heartworm negative, several recent intakes have been positive.  This is a sometimes scary, but necessary and expensive treatment to save the lives of the precious pets in our care.  

We are dedicated to do all we can to help them live long, happy lives and make a positive difference in the lives of those who choose to adopt them!  Therefore, we have never raised our dog adoption fee from $100 (cats are only $50).  This in no way covers all of their medical expenses (spay/neuter, shots, heartworm treatment (if necessary), etc), but we want potential adopters with big hearts to be able to adopt them.  

Will you help us continue to SAVE.THEM.ALL by contributing to the care of these loving pets?  We currently have (5) dogs needing heartworm treatment so any funds we receive from #GivingTuesday2017 will help cover these expenses as well as spay/neuters.  Thank you and have a Merry Christmas!
