About Us

Adopting A Friend

















We are looking for adopting persons who are committing to making a difference financially and morally in the life of an animal.  Contribution donations are NOT A PURCHASE PRICE NOR ADOPTION FEE but a donation freely given. 

Adoption donations help us cover the spay/neuter of your new pet,  current shots,  micro chipping,  grooming, flea meds, food, training if needed,  supplies, medical care, and temporary boarding of the animal.  

A home check will also be REQUIRED as well as a BINDING CONTRACT to adopt an animal from our group.  With the adoption donation you will be supporting the work of rescuing of many more homeless pets....and let's not forget, finding your NEW BEST FRIEND!
