We love the fact that we are a foster-based rescue.


Many of our animals come from incredibly humble beginnings, and the shelter setting prior to joining our network may be their only experience "inside". Often, rescued animals are dumped, born stray, and may initially lack the basic needs we look forward to providing our pets. The end goal, and our mission, is to place our animals into forever, loving homes, that will meet all the needs (and more) our pups may have yet to experience. 


 We keep close contact with our fosters and value their input into each of our animals' needs. We put our animals first when it comes to their placement. Completing an application to adopt does not promise you a pup, we want adoptions to be a match for all.


If you see an animal you are interested in, the first step would be to APPLY! Then, let your vet office/references/landlords know that we'll be in touch! A dog's bio is accessible on our Adopt A Pet website and Facebook page!


Questions about the dog? Email the coordinator located in the listing! Our volunteer coordinators will do their best to respond promptly(we do have other jobs so please be patient).
