We serve Holmes County, Ohio, and the surrounding areas
It all started with one family in Northern Lancaster County, Pennsylvania (yes, THAT Lancaster County). They started reaching out to local Puppy breeders, and they convinced quite a few of them that it's better to place their dogs into a loving home than to continue doing what they used to do with a dog they no longer wanted. In the many years since that humble beginning in 1998, we've grown from a family operation into having dozens of volunteers, supporters, and friends, all of whom are dedicated to the same task: Saving their lives!
We also rescue cats from local farms, families, and nearby kill shelters. We've also found homes for rabbits, finches, guinea pigs, maccaws, snakes, frogs, turtles, goats, sheep, pigs, horses and even an alligator!
We do not have a shelter facility that you can visit, as we do all our housing and care through foster homes and volunteers. But we do bring our dogs and cats to Pet Valu in Ephrata Pa. We will make appointments for approved adopters to come meet the animal, and see if the animal adopts them (it's far more important that the animal is happy, as they've had the much more difficult life).
PLEASE NOTE: We are, as it says above, a family-based effort, and that must come first in everything we do! All our volunteers have families that always take precidence over other activities. So if anyone is slow to respond to you, or we take more time than you might think is proper, chalk it up to being parents first, and animal rescuers second! We hope you understand...
