About Our Rescue Group:

We rescue and place animals that no one else will take. There are not many no kill shelters in our area so please adopt! Every time an animal is adopted that also open up a space so another animal can be helped...its like saving not just one but two animals!

Come Meet our Pets:

If you are interested in one of our animals just call/email and we will set up a time for you to meet the animal.

Our Adoption Process:

We do not usually charge a fee unless the pets medical bills have been really high. We require that you neuter/spay the pet if it is not already altered at the time of adoption. We also welcome any donations because funds help us help more animals! Thanks for caring!

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
