We are an all-breed dog and cat rescue.



The Adoption Process begins when you complete an online application, naming either one or a few of our Available Animals or providing a description of the type of animal you hope to adopt.

Our rescue operations are staffed entirely by caring volunteers and are not supported by taxes. Except for 3 Thrift Shop employees, no one receives compensation–we rely on our wonderful supporters to allow us to keep saying YES to all the animals.
