Currently, we are a small rescue, but we often provide information in the community about the importance of spaying and neutering and winter safety. We’ve been in the paper, on the radio, and often hold events to bring the community together (ie: Puppy Play Dates, Adopt-A-Thons, etc)

We began in August 2013!

We use many volunteers for driving, fostering, fundraising, and advertising. It’s as east as contacting our email and lending a hand!

Kennels, dog food, toys, leashes and collars, and cash donations for our vetting bills.

Establishing a mass spay and neuter clinic! *Fingers crossed*
