Mission

Big Love's mission is to rescue abandoned, abused, and neglected animals. We will get them medical care or behavioral training so we can find them their forever homes. Our team is made up of seasoned rescuers who have spent many years rescuing frightened and abandoned animals of all ages and sizes from sidewalks and dumpsters to alleyways and gutters. We’ve taken dogs who had gone days without food or water, chained in yards while their owners moved away. The animals we encounter are all emergencies and may suffer multiple health problems. Very often, their immune systems are low and they have been through physical and emotional trauma. Our vision is a world where people have compassion, respect and big love for animals.

Big Love Rescue and Adoption Program

Big Love Animal Rescue seeks to rescue as many dogs as possible from the streets, rehabilitate them, and place them with loving forever homes. Our rehabilitation program will cover anything the animal needs, from surgeries to medications to obedience training. Furthermore, our adoption process is designed to thoroughly vet potential adopters to make sure the dog is placed with a family that will satisfy his needs.
