How Does It Work?
All the animals in our rescue program have been
through some type of turmoil. Many excellent pets simply end up
in shelters because of over-breeding. Therefore, it is up to the
rescuers to find the best "forever" home for each animal
in our care. Sometimes, we end up with several people interested
in the same dog. Please note, we can't make everyone happy. Please
keep this in mind when applying for adoption.
All the dogs listed on our Petfinder
web site are available for adoption unless marked PENDING or ADOPTED.

with shots, and evaluated before they are placed.The adoption donation
covers all food, medical and related expenses. Without these donations
it would not be possible for our volunteers to continue saving other
dogs in real need.
