We need volunteers!

We are a newer animal rescue that is looking for volunteers. We have so many different ways to volunteer, including being a foster family. We have volunteer opportunities for all ages! We have a list of so many ways you can help the rescue including tasks that can be done right at home. Please email for more information.

Who We Are

We are a smaller, rescue group that focuses on animals in local pounds/shelters. We rescue dogs and cats from shelters where they have no room and euthanize due to space. They are all great animals very deserving of great homes. Our rescue was created through the desire to save more lives that all our members have. We all have a passion to save animals as well as a commitment to ensure great futures for all our animals we rescue.

Adopting a friend

Adoption Process:
Step 1: Fill out an application on the animal you are interested in.
Step 2: Home visit once step one is completed.

Once both the application and home visit are approved then the adoption takes place. There is an adoption fee, which is different for each animal. There is also an adoption contract that must be signed for the adoption to finalize.

This process ensures that all our animals find the homes they have waited their whole lives for...

If you are interested in adopting one of our furbabies please click on the link for our adoption application below to fill out. Under normal circumstances we will get back in touch with you about your application within 24 hours.

The animals listed on our website are all in foster homes. Just because you are not in the state the animal is fostered in, don't let that stop you from applying. Since we require a home visit, we will travel up to 2 hours from Linden, NJ to place our rescue furbabies.


ADOPTING—For pets near you, check out: or or Don’t buy while others die. You’re new best friend is closer than you realize.

FOSTERING—You can take a dog or cat into your home for a period of time (1 week to a few months). You take care of them and give them the extra time they need until they find a home of their own. Many animals are very adoptable but are in high-kill shelters where they only have 3 days to find a home. Most just need more time to find their new family. This is a very rewarding experience to know YOU were the reason they are alive, you were part of their journey to find their forever home.

BRINGING ANIMALS TO THE VET—We currently use two different vets. When we rescue dogs and cats they need either updated shots or to be fixed. If you can help, you would pick up and drop off the animal at the vets office and get them there safely. This is a task that could help us greatly. If you have some extra time to spare one day we can make a vet appointment to fit your schedule.

HELPING GET US "OUT THERE"—We are always trying to spread the animal rescue message. As well as how important fixing your animals is. We are always trying to make a presence and have everyone remember to adopt versus purchase a dog. We need help calling around to get exposure. Whether it is the paper, fliers, anything.

SUPPLY DRIVE—We collect old blankets, towels, sheets; small, medium & large dog collars, leashes; carriers/crates; dog food; dog beds; and monetary donations for vet bills (spay/neuter).

FUNDRAISING—We are always looking for people to help with events and even plan them.

Thousands of animals are saved each month by a network of rescuers who work together. Please join us and help make a HUGE difference!
