"Compassion, in which all ethics must take root, can only attain its full breadth and depth if it embraces all living creatures and does not limit itself to mankind."
~Albert Schweitzer








"Living with animals can be a wonderful experience, especially if we choose to learn the valuable lessons animals teach through their natural enthusiasm, grace, resourcefulness, affection and forgiveness."

3. Our Wish List

Everybody could use a Fairy Godmother, and we are certainly no different. We keep looking for her to show up with a magic pumpkin full of items that we always need. Click below for the list that you can print out and help by bringing us any item listed!

4. Foster

Our foster families are angels sent from heaven - truly. Once our animals have had their health check-up, we place them with our foster families so they can begin to adjust to being part of a family. Many of our animals have had a tough time in the past, and in the pound where we rescue them, and they need some time getting used to being loved and cared for again. Some need a little training. It's a job that pays for itself a thousand times over whenever you look into the eyes of a rescued animal that knows love again. You'll see.

We'll make it easy. Click here for our application.
