We do not discriminate based on breed, age, lack of manners, medical background or current medical state. Those animals that need us most, those who are in jeopardy of losing their lives due to a lack of resources in a shelter (or at risk of euthanasia in a local clinic), will be the dogs we seek out for rescue.

Our dogs receive the vet care, love, exercise and attention they need before being placed up for adoption. Once they find their forever homes though, we make a promise that our dogs will never be alone again, and should their new home be unable to care for them in the future, we promise to take them back into care. We love these dogs like they were our very own, and we want to make sure they are never abandoned again.

Since our start in 2012, we have helped network well over 1000 dogs with other reputable rescues and have taken in over 1200 dogs into our care.
