Our Mission

Our mission is to help our furry friends find their forever homes...whether it be rescuing from high kill shelters, the streets, an abusive home, fostering or transporting - each of us can do something!  We want them to know the love and kindness they deserve. When we place one of our rescues, we do so after careful consideration. This way, we can be confident  that each one is placed in a loving home.  Therefore, a good fit for the rescued baby as well as its new human family.
