Charting impact

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

We aim to have a direct impact on the lives of abused and abandoned animals. We also aim to combat animal cruelty at its source by promoting consequences for abusers. We focus on promoting a more kind and compassionate world for animals.

We have a direct impact by saving the animals who are in desperate need and who have nowhere else to go. We provide them with all the love and care they need and deserve. We also work with law enforcement to pursue consequences for animal abusers. We visit schools and provide sanctuary tours in our efforts to promote a more compassionate world.

We have a very dedicated staff of volunteers who devote their time and energy to our animals and our programs.

We have rescued hundreds of animals and continue to be more effective every year. We intend to expand our rescue, sanctuary and humane education programs to have a more far-reaching impact.
