“You can judge a man's true character by the way he treats his fellow animals.” 
~Paul McCartney
Our Mission Statment
   Our Mission to provide temporary shelter to stray, abandoned, and surrendered animals for the purpose of finding permanent suitable new homes. To provide assistance and financial aid to prevent overpopulation through spaying and neutering programs. We are determined to keep administrative expenses extremely low so that virtually every dollar taken in goes directly to the care of the animals. Our group remains interested in, and committed to the welfare of the dogs and cats beyond the adoption process. Finally we strive to work with area shelters and other rescue, and humane organizations to develop a network of supporters and volunteers in order to create a better world for homeless pets.

We couldn't do it with out you!

If all my friends were to jump off a bridge, I wouldn't jump with them.  I'd be at the bottom to catch them.
