Animals are my passion. I feel extremely blessed to be able to use this gift to help not only animals, but the people who love them. I rescued my first dog over 25 years ago. I was young and not knowing any better bought a dog from a backyard breeder. He was very sick and ended up dying a few weeks and several hundred dollars later. This experience was a hard lesson learned, but the beginning of a desire to end the suffering of animals. I became the person who always stopped to help a stray. Luckily, I fell in love with and married someone who will tolerate this addiction. At one time we had a full house with 10 rescue dogs living with us. It was at this point that we jointly decided to take the plunge and become an official nonprofit. This decision has come with a lot of hard work, long hours and sacrifices. But the rewards greatly outnumber the price that we have had to pay. We wouldn't have it any other way! I could have never imagined the impact we have had on so many people.
All of these and so many more stories are what keeps us going. We will continue to do as much as we can to reach the ultimate goal of a world with ALL pets in loving homes!!
