Our animals need your help! We depend on your donations. In the case of sick or injured animals, your cash donations are crucial for an animal to be rescued. All cash donations go to treat and ease the pain of injured and sick animals until their owner can be found or they can find a new home. Examples of what is needed are: Medications for upper respiratory, hookworms, roundworms, pinworms, cuts that require antibiotics and pain meds, mange and ringworm. We can also have dogs tested for parvo, cats tested heartworms and get the first round of shots before they get out the door. With out your cash donations we can not help as many animals as we would like.
