We receive no government funding. We are a Self-Funded Non-Profit. We rely on our adoption fees, surrender fees and the kindness of the public to keep our rescue running.

We rescue puppies and dogs from the High Kill shelters/pounds and give them a second chance at a wonderful life with their forever family. We also, when the space allows, take in owner surrenders.
