About Our Rescue Group:

It all started with one family in Northern Lancaster County, Pennsylvania (yes, THAT Lancaster County). They started reaching out to local Puppy breeders, and they convinced quite a few of them that it's better to place their dogs into a loving home than to continue doing what they used to do with a dog they no longer wanted. In the many years since that humble beginning in 1998, we've grown from a family operation into having dozens of volunteers, supporters, and friends, all of whom are dedicated to the same task: Saving their lives!

We also rescue cats from local farms, families, and nearby kill shelters. We've also found homes for rabbits, finches, guinea pigs, maccaws, snakes, frogs, turtles, goats, sheep, pigs, horses and even an alligator!

We do not have a shelter facility that you can visit, as we do all our housing and care through foster homes and volunteers. But we do bring our dogs and cats to Pet Valu in Ephrata Pa. We will make appointments for approved adopters to come meet the animal, and see if the animal adopts them (it's far more important that the animal is happy, as they've had the much more difficult life).

PLEASE NOTE: We are, as it says above, a family-based effort, and that must come first in everything we do! All our volunteers have families that always take precidence over other activities. So if anyone is slow to respond to you, or we take more time than you might think is proper, chalk it up to being parents first, and animal rescuers second! We hope you understand...

Our Adoption Process:

Our process is very easy...there is a link to an adoption form on the page for each dog. Find a dog you're interested in adopting, and click the link to complete the adoption form. We'll review it, contact your references, and get in touch with the homes we believe to be the best match. We make no guarantees of working in any order of receipt...we're looking for the proper home for our dogs, not just whoever can fill out the form the fastest! No offense intended, please

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
