Featured Pet: Quinn

Meet Quinn!

Quinn is an amazing blue and white American Staffordshire Terrier mix girl who loves going for walks and just hanging out with her people. She loves all people and is very social. She is about two years old and really wants a home of her own. She is spayed, up to date on shots and microchipped.

The adoption fee of $175 helps with medical expenses incurred by the Rescue.

If you want to meet her, please fill out an on-line application at and we will contact you so that you can meet this darling girl.

Education: Monetary Donations

We are so grateful to everyone who donates their hard earned money to our organization and we wanted to let you know where that money goes. First, we are 100% volunteer based. No one in our organization receives a salary, phone or gas reimbursement. Every dollar we receive goes directly to the care of our animals. All of our animals receive vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchipping and teeth cleaning (if needed). Aside from medical expenses, we also use donation dollars to pay for food, toys, treats and boarding expenses. We love and care for every animal in our organization like they are our own pets to make sure that their adoption transition is as smooth as possible.

We are so excited to announce our very first fundraising event that we are co-hosting with our friends at Luv of Dogz Fund. Please join us at OHSO Brewery in Arcadia on October 1st from 4:30pm – 9:30pm on the patio. We will be doing a silent auction, 50/50 raffle and adoptions. Plus, OHSO will be donating 20% from each tab to our groups. We hope to see you there!
