Mission

We rescue dogs and cats from high kill animal shelters in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. We spay and neuter them, vaccinate them and get them well. Then, we house them in a stress free environment where you can meet the animals and decide if you want to adopt. We hope by meeting the animals and spending time with them in our café, this will reduce the return rate.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There are too many returned animals that are adopted. There are too many animals as pets that are not spayed or neutered. We hope to reduce the return rate of adopted shelter pets and get all of our adopted animals spayed and neutered. For those feisty cats, we place them in barns :)

Goals & Strategy

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

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

To reduce the amount of pets that end up in shelters and reduce the amount of animals that need to be euthanized.

We rescue pets and have people meet them in our cat café. Getting to know the animal reduces the rate of return.

We have every capability to do this. We have a space where you can meet the animal and worst case, we accept returns. We treat the adoption as if you were a foster. Hopefully, this allows one to return an animal to us to rehome instead of it ending up in animal control.

So far we have adopted out 5 of 7 under this program.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: May 16 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Executive Director

Michelle Vereckey

I am a practicing attorney on Main Street in Monroe NC for 20 years. I saw the horrific conditions at a local rescue where I adopted and later had to put down a wonderful cat named Charlie. I decided there is a much better way to adopt an animal so I started this nonprofit.
