What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In a nutshell, we are animal advocates who provide a voice for the pets in the shelters. The main mission of our nonprofit organization, is to provide medical care for sick and injured pets that are so often overlooked by adopters due to financial constraints. With the help of our veterinarian partners, we rehabilitate the dogs so they can thrive and find their forever homes.

Charting impact

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

We aspire to help as many sick and injured shelter animals as financially possible, rehabilitate their bodies and minds, and ultimately find loving forever homes with responsible adopters. We also strive to help increase the live release rate at area shelters by rescuing the animals that are classified as urgent, which are at risk of euthanasia.

Fundraising efforts will allow us to help more animals. We stay active in the community to collect donations while also spreading awareness of animal welfare. Education is also a key factor of reducing the number of animals that enter into the shelter every year.

Our Facebook page has an enormous following which allows us to reach thousands of people in the area, as well as many all across the country. With the help of our followers, we are are able to spread the word of animals in need as well as collect regular donations which is helping our organization grow.

We have helped many animals in need since becoming a nonprofit organization in 2017. Every pet is special to us, but we've seen some pretty amazing stories come from our work. One of our rescued pets was honored as a K9 officer of the day and awarded a special certificate at a city hall meeting. Another is working toward becoming a therapy dog to help spread joy to the ill at local hospitals. This only shows how important our work has been, and inspires us daily to continue our efforts. Not only for the animals we save, but for those whose lives are enriched by these pets once they have been rehabilitated and adopted.
