We are an award-winning, 501(c)3 non-profit organization fully devoted to the well-being of homeless pets. Until they find their forever homes, all animals in our care receive shelter, food, enrichment — and the love of our staff and volunteers. We also provide veterinary care, training, and socialization to improve adoptability and quality of life. We do what it takes, for as long as it takes, for every animal that enters our doors.
