Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

York county, Pa. and Prince George's County, Md.

About Our Rescue Group:

We started in 1997 in Princes George's county Maryland going to the county shelter and taking out animals to home foster. The non profit was developed and we qualify as a IRS approved rescue. We currently have a representative in PG county but moved our operation to York Pa. in 2002-= we provide information and referral services, and developed the YorkCounty Feral Cat Coalition. Currently we provide information/ traps on loan for TNR activities. Since we have no shelter we can only work with a few animals at a time, and at this time, primarily cats, though self-fostered dogs can go thru our service. We have NO shelter facilities and cannot take in lost, or unwanted animals. We can and do try to help with efforts to help the owner keep their pet or to find them a good home. We would encourage people who plan to call to do so between the hours of 9am and 10pm only.

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.
