We specialize in the rescue and re-homing of rottweilers, and give sanctuary to senior dogs, especially those over the age of 10, so they can live out their lives here instead of dying alone and unloved in shelters.

We are a 501c3 MN non-profit corporation.

Foster Homes Needed!...

We are in urgent need of foster homes for rottweilers. Must have bully breed experience. There are many rottweilers getting put down at animal control facilities due to their breed. We are trying to help as many as we can, and with your help we can do that! Since we are not a shelter, we depend on fosters to help us save dogs in need. If you have a large heart, a lot of patience and a welcoming home for dogs in need, give Tara a call at 612-730-0836! Potential foster homes undergo a screening process which includes an application, references and a home visit.

Who We Are

Welcome to our website! We are a foster based rescue that takes in neglected, abused and unwanted animals from various animal control facilities and shelters. We are an all volunteer staff whose sole purpose is to protect and care for these animals until suitable homes can be found for them. We work with other like-minded organizations to help in the placement of abandoned animals. We foster animals in our homes until they are adopted. Most of our dogs come from animal control facilities or shelters where they will be put down due to lack of space, or due to their breed like rottweilers. We give priority to seniors and to those who have suffered severe abuse and neglect.

Adopting a friend

Note to Adopters We are very careful in the placement of our rescue animals. We become very attached to them in our rescue efforts and with them staying in our homes. We get them on the road to good health and sometimes spend a small fortune in vet care. Please keep in mind that many of these wonderful beings have had rough lives and have been abandoned, neglected, starved or beaten by their previous owners through no fault of their own. They have a lot of love to give and ask that you be patient with them as they adjust to their new surroundings. They will repay you with unlimited love and affection.

All dogs are spay or neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, de-wormed and more, before placement. Adoption fees shall not be considered purchase prices, but donations to help defray vet costs and related expenses to help us continue our rescue efforts.

We use the HomeAgain microchip system.

If you are considering adopting a dog, remember it is a long term commitment and these wonderful beings are not disposable. You will need to fill out an adoption application and a home visit may be required, depending on the animal or the distance. We do not do same day adoptions. We request that you call for an appointment after your application has been approved to come and visit the animal of your choice. If you have a current dog, you should bring him/her along to meet the new dog so we can see how everyone interacts.
