About Our Rescue Group:

We are a group of friends who love animals and open our homes to pets of all sizes needing new forever homes. We don't have a shelter, so all pets are kept in our homes until they get adopted. We provide medical care and lots of love to all our fosters.

Our Adoption Process:

We require a completed adoption application and homecheck before an animal is placed. Our adoption fees vary based on animal type and age. All pets will be spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and tested for all major diseases.

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.
