About Our Rescue Group:

We have been rescuing cats and dogs for over 20 years and working with and also helping other rescue groups and even individuals who rescued abandoned pets. We now have a sanctuary for those hard to place cats from working with other groups and those rescued from feral colonies or abandoned by their owners. Although, we do occasionally take in kittens, we put most of our focus on the older population of cats that are less likely to be adopted, which often means they are with us for a longer period of time. But, we never give up, even older guys can find homes. We hope to find permanent homes for them as we work with them or they will have a lifetime home forever at our sanctuary. We do not euthanize any pet just because it is not adoptable. We also rescue dogs and puppies but on a smaller scale as well as rescue horses, chickens, rabbits, birds, etc., and try to find them loving forever homes too. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. With older and senior cats who are most often the ones that never find homes our expenses are much more, so any donations are greatly appreciated and tax deductible. Donations are welcomed of any amount, item, food, litter, etc. We are always in need of these items. Monetary donations are always welcome as well to help with medical care for our seniors.

Come Meet our Pets:

As much as we would love to come out to do adoption stands, manpower is at a premium to find. Adoption stands can be very time consuming but also extremely stressful to the pets we have for adoption. If you find a pet listed on our pet page, just drop us a note. We will be glad to talk with you about the pet and help you decide if he/she is right for your family. From there we can move on to actually having a visit with the pet in a quite, peaceful situation rather than a highly stressful one where you may not see their true personality. No pressure on our part, and we always take our babies back.

Our Adoption Process:

Please contact us about our fees, contracts, etc., regarding any pet we have listed. All our pets are spayed/neutered and up to date on shots, etc., unless too young, etc.

Adoption through our group does require an application. We know, really an application, but please understand we care for these wonderful creatures in our homes and they become part of our families temporarily. We want only the best for them just like we all want best for our 2 legged children as well. So if you want your babies coming from a group that pets and loves and makes them a temporary part of their family as much as you would, then we just might be the right group for you to find your next addition. We are not trying to judge you and your home. We are trying to judge whether this kitten is appropriate for your home. We want to minimize the chance of our babies (no matter how old) ending up without their family for life because of a bad match. If you feel the way we do about animals, you know that each has their own personality. We've been doing this for 20+ years, so we try hard from the animal's personality to find that right home, the one that lasts forever, so you see we're judging what the animal needs. If you think this works for you, then please continue on. If not, we certainly understand, and there are still some wonderful animals out there that need homes. So, please, visit your local shelters and adopt a pet. We would encourage you as well to consider fostering a 2nd pet temporarily for the shelter, so that it provides space for 1 more life to live a little longer.

Please note, however, we do from time to time help other individual rescuers find homes and advertise for them. These adoptions are handled directly through those individuals and not through our group. Fees imposed by those individuals are in no way distributed back to our group. This is totally a courtesy to that individual rescuer.

Please be sure to have your pets spayed and neutered asap. If you need assistance with ferals or strays, please contact the Richmond SPCA for info.

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.
