We are not a shelter but a RESCUE and DO NOT have a physical location.
ALL of our adoptable dogs are kept in private foster homes
where they can be part of a family lifestyle outside of a crate, get individual attention and love, socialization and basic training during their temporary transition to a new permanent home.




All adoptions are done through applications. If you are interested in one of our pets, it is important that you

complete an Adoption Application at this link.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
