Who We Are

We are a rescue group founded in the summer of 2007 that specializes in rescuing dogs and puppies from high kill shelters. Although we are located in Central PA we rescue dogs from all over the country. To date we have rescued over 200 dogs and puppies from Pennsylvania, Kentucky, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Maryland, and Arkansas. We are NOT a shelter, all of our dogs are in foster care until placed into their forever homes.

How You Can Help

You can help save a life!! We are desperately looking for new foster homes. Since we are a small rescue with no physical shelter every foster home we get represents another life that we can save. Since we deal with all breeds and many different shelters we can easily match you with the foster that is right for you. We also believe that our foster parents who take such good care of our dogs deserve input into where the dog they foster ends up so we vow that we won't approve any adoption until the foster home has signed off on the new family!

If you can't foster or adopt please consider making a donation to help the dogs. Bags of food, treats, toys, crates, or any dog supplies can be put to good use. We also accept donations towards or veterinarian bills if you'd like to donate you can contact Dan at for the information needed.

Adopting a friend

We require an adoption fee of $150 ($100 for dogs older than 6 months) to cover our medical, boarding, feeding, and transportation costs associated with rescuing the dogs. All adults dogs will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be spayed/neutered will be required in the adoption agreement to be spayed/neutered by the adopter when they are 7 months old.

Come Visit Us!

Although we don't have a physical location we are committed to placing the animals into new homes as quickly as possibly so we are available almost anytime to show the dogs/puppies by appointment. Just give us a call or shoot us and email and we'll set it up!
