What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Rescuing adult and senior animals with health conditions and continuing to receive needed funding to cover their medical expenses, often times after they have been adopted we provide financial assistance to cover their needed medical care. Senior dogs and cats can require medication, a special diet or a procedure simply due to their age though otherwise healthy, sweet and able to provide companionship. We want to do all we can to place them into caring, loving permanent homes without placing undue financial burdens on the adopters.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals include reducing the number of animals impounded and euthanized at our local shelters, preventing litters that contribute to the pet overpopulation problem, and giving unwanted pets a second chance.

Our strategies include rescuing animals from high-kill and rural shelters that experience more overcrowding and fewer adoptions and exposure; and providing veterinary and medical care along with spaying/neutering all animals before making them available for adoption.

Negotiated rates with veterinarians and other animal health-care specialists, dedicated board members and volunteers; and, funding we receive from Foundation grants along with individual and corporate donors.

We continue to seek and receive grant funding from foundations, and we continue to develop long-term relationships with top veterinary providers and professional trainers.
