About Our Rescue Group:

We were founded on June 26th, 2012 in memory of an eight year old black German Shepherd/Chow named Cayleb. His story is a sad one, but one that inspired our founder to save others like him. He was taken in as a lost dog to a county shelter, and after three long months, he was beginning to reach the end of his given time. When our founder peered into his kennel, he looked intimidating and scared. She couldn't resist adopting him. As soon as he got outside, he started giving kisses, and happily hopped in the back seat of the car without hesitation. Cayleb quickly became best friends with the founder's current dog (a very dog shy poodle), as well as with everyone he met.
Unfortunately, after a month of morning runs and trips to the dog park, Cayleb began to go down hill quickly. When x-rayed, an inoperable mass was found in his liver, and our founder had to make the tough decision to let him go on July 13th, 2012.

We have had dogs as old as 20 years old in our rescue, and as young as 8. We have all breeds, from Dachshunds to Mastiffs, Coonhounds to Wirehaired Pointing Griffons.
We love our seniors, and hope to spread that love with everyone else!

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.
