We will never have to say no to animals like Chickadee, who was found shivering on a pile of trash, malnourished and dehydrated. She is now gaining weight in a loving foster home, learning to be loved. Every animal deserves it - and you can help us make that happen.

Our expenses are higher than they have ever been. We have been expanding our social services, taking in animals who need more medical care than ever.

"Chickadee was found shivering on a pile of trash. She is now in our home, wearing her favorite sweater, and learning to be loved." 

We're distributing tens of thousands pounds of dog and cat food every month. We can do all of this because of our community. Because of you. 

Help us continue to support and strengthen the bond between animals and humans. 

Let's make this first in person 5K since pre-covid the best one yet!  
We hope to see you there!
