Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Our volunteers come from all walks of life, but have one fundamental thing in common, and that is our love of dogs and our dedication to help them in whatever way we can. Each volunteer has their own stories and motivations for doing what they do, but all of us do it for one reason: LOVE! Most of our volunteers have been doing rescue work for many years and are what we lovingly refer to as our “Seasoned Nuts!”
Our mission is to rescue, provide sanctuary, and obtain medical care, through licensed veterinarians, to ultimately re-home abandoned, surrendered, stray, abused or neglected dogs. We also want to educate the public on the plight of homeless dogs, the benefits of adoption, the importance of spay/neuter, and the proper care of dogs.
Our dogs come to us in a variety of ways, such as shelter turnovers and owner surrenders. Dogs will be accepted regardless of breed, size, age, or medical status providing that there is a suitable foster home available to care for the dog, as well as financial means to provide for the medical care of the dog. Priority is given to dogs coming from abuse or neglect situations, shelter turnovers, owner surrenders, or other situations that might place the dog in imminent danger of homelessness, injury, neglect or death.
All of the dogs that come to the rescue are placed in appropriate foster homes while they are evaluated and given any needed medical care. Our foster volunteers are a wonderful, caring, and compassionate lot who open their hearts, homes and wallets knowing that their only compensation will be that mixture of joy and sorrow they will one day feel when they hand off that happy, healthy, wagging tail to a smiling adopter who promises to love them forever.
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.
