  1. Save A Life * You are helping to save a life by providing a forever home for a homeless animal rather than creating a market for additional kittens/puppies.

  2. Offer Animals New Hope * Many pets are victims of circumstance - moving, allergies, lack of forethought - and deserve a new home. These animals bring unconditional love and companionship. Adopters are heroes in the battle against pet overpopulation - and to their new pet. Be a hero!

  3. Variety * Animal shelters have it all - from purebreds to the most unique crossbreeds. Don't be limited by looking or a specific breed; crossbreeds can have the best traits from a variety of breed-lines.

  4. Animal Personalities * Our knowledge of the animal's characteristics, activity level, needs, traits and care requirements allow for excellent family matches and placement.

  5. Experienced Animals * We don't just have puppies and kittens, we also have many experienced animals. With older pets, there is little guesswork - what you see is what you get - which helps when looking for a compatible pet. Sometimes it can be difficult to form a bond with younger dogs, as they are more prone to be feisty and independent. Most of the dogs from shelters have been denied the warmth that comes from a loving family, so they are more prone to form an instant bond with those that show them a little caring.

  6. Knowledgeable Staff / Volunteers * Our goal is to help you decide on the pet that's right for you, your family and your lifestyle so our pets find life-long homes.

  7. Health Care * Vaccinations, sterilizations, identification and more, are all included in the adoption fee.

  8. Support * After the adoption, we are happy to answer questions and/or refer you to a trainer who can provide assistance.

"I Rescued a Human Today"

Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.

As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life. She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.

Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

..I rescued a human today.
