Pupdates Hot Off The Press: January 5, 2016

Recent Adoptions!!!

Vanna White







Featured Pet: Steve

Meet Steve!

Steve, also called Baxter, is a medium-sized, two and a 1/2 year old shepherd/cattle dog mix who has lots of energy and needs a job!  He would work well as an only dog or one with older children as he wants to ‘herd’ others.  He does great on the leash and lays nicely when transporting in the car.  He has been neutered, microchipped and is up to date on vaccinations.  If you have an active home, please consider adding Steve to your family.

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

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

Education: Make a donation without spending any extra money!

Happy New Year!

We are thrilled to announce that we found furever homes for over 125 animals in 2015! We would not have been able to do this without the support of our amazing volunteers and fosters. We would also like to thank everyone who made monetary donations. These donations go directly towards the care of the animals, and we could not exist without adequate funds for medical procedures and boarding care.
