What We Do

How You Can Help

We believe that cats and dogs deserve to live their lives in the best possible conditions – adopted into loving homes, in temporary foster care, or moved up from feral colonies into barns. These programs accomplish those goals through rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming.

  • Rehabilitation – before our adoptees are rehomed, we address their physical and social issues and update their vaccinations.
  • Fostering for Rockstars – we are striving to recruit a cadre of dedicated fosters who care for the pets between intake and placement.
  • Adoption and “Cat-Matchmaking” – we pride ourselves on very low adoption failures because we know our adoptees and consider which adopters will be the best fit for their temperament, age, and personality.
  • Senior and Special Needs placement – we are determined to find the right homes to assure a fulfilling relationship for those pets that need extra care because of age or physical/medical restrictions.
  • Barn Placement - we work diligently to find safe alternatives for relocating feral, semi-feral, or tame cats that are accustomed to being outdoors. Our barn placement adoptions follow a strict, proven protocol for acclimating them to their new home.
  • Rehoming Assistance – in most cases due to the volume of homeless animals that we intake, we cannot accept surrendered pets. We can however, help the current guardians by posting their pets on national adoption databases, and by referring potential adopters to them.

The folks at Pet Smart recommended your organization because I am in the unfortunate position that I have to give up my cat (Gracie) for adoption due to a few significant issues. She's a 13 y.o. Grey tabby, spayed, slightly overweight, with all current inoculations, and is healthy. She has been an exclusive indoor cat.

Three years ago we brought a puppy into the home. All was well at first and they acclimated and coexisted well, no animosity. As our dog started growing up she became more aggressive towards the Gracie. She chases her out of any room she comes into. Fortunately, the cat is faster, I don't know what would happen if the dog caught her. There is usually a lot of hissing and swatting, and two costly ER trips for scratched cornea.
Gracie’s quality of life has and continues to seriously suffer and it isn’t fair to her. She has to hide and travel in the shadows, to get to her food, water, and litter box. Additionally, she isn’t getting as much love and attention she deserves. We have them separated as best we can on different levels but it’s inevitable she gets caught and chased away by the dog. This has caused her to defecate, and urinate outside her box.

Secondly, our dog developed sever allergies to environmental factors, which included feline dander. I need to eliminate this as a constant factor. Our dog is under the care of a Dermatologist, which is costing me thousands of dollars in quarterly visits, skin and blood tests, medications, and allergy injections. With the dander as a continuous factor, it is impeding and/or preventing the injections from becoming successful in treating the allergies. Thus, I am forced to continue to spend considerable amounts of additional money on pills and shots and blood test for medication to just keep my dog comfortable. Hoping the shots take effect, this has been ongoing for a year and a half.

Finally, I am in bankruptcy. Perhaps you can imagine how this exasperates the situation.
I hope and pray that you have the ability to adopt Gracie and give her the chance to live her life carefree. If not will you please recommend other rescues I can pursue?
Thank you in advance,

Sincerely,
Dustin Richardson

Dog Of the Month: Oboe

Oboe is a very loving and sweet dog and would be best suited for someone who has a yard or an active adopter who could take him on runs or play throw-and-retrieve games. He also loves water. He will step right into the bathtub and wait for you to give him a shower.

Senior Of the Month: Pebbles
