You'll save two lives. With more people surrendering pets than adopting, shelter staff are forced to make difficult decisions and euthanize pets to make space for incoming animals. Adopting rather than shopping for your next pet will help to reduce the number of animals euthanized. Adopting a pet actually saves TWO LIVES as you free up space for another animal in need to find lasting love through the wonder of adoption. It is a FUN experience and you’ll feel good opening your heart and home to a shelter pet.

Contrary to popular belief, the vast majority of shelter pets are homeless through no fault of their own. Divorce, financial constraints, time limitations and NOT the animal’s health and/or behavior are the most common reasons an animal is left homeless. For every pet purchased, a shelter pet loses out on a home. People never think to ask themselves where that puppy in the window comes from. More often than not, puppies come from puppy mills - mass dog breeding facilities where the animals are housed in inhumane, filthy and deplorable conditions. Many never see the light of day, receive human attention, exercise, veterinary care and are repeatedly bred for profit. These commercial breeders sell to pet stores and advertise online and in newspapers. Puppy mill animals often have behavioral and health issues. “Retired” breeders are often abandoned, sold at auction or are inhumanely euthanized. ADOPT, DON’T SHOP. If people continue buying from pet stores and mills, there will always be a market for the animals raised in these horrid conditions.


Our rescue animals need a place to feel safe, a place to learn love, heal and regain their trust in people.


Animals that have foster families have a much greater chance of getting adopted! Foster families learn so much about their foster rescue that they become expert matchmakers resulting in successful loving forever adoptive homes!


Commitment issues? No worries! We are looking for overnight, weekend, weekly, monthly, and long-term foster homes. Love doesn’t cost a thing. We provide it all! Food, crate, litter, training tools and medical care. You provide a Loving Home!


No problem! All animals big and small are looking for foster homes.
