We are very rescue friendly and rescue oriented. This means that we strive to save as many 4-legged lives as possible by sending them to the rescue groups that we work with. (If you are a rescue group please feel free to contact us. We are willing to work with anyone!) Sadly, we aren't able to save them all. However, your donations of food, time, and money will ensure that our rescue efforts can continue. It's because of your donations that we are able to save lives!
