Can you help our doggies run, play and heal in safety?

Our dream is to create a safe space where our doggies can run and play to help them rebuild their confidence and restore their spirits after their time at the council pounds. So many coming to us are withdrawn, depressed and highly stressed. We want to build our Freedom Dog Park right here at the shelter.

Watch the video to hear just how important the park will be for all our doggies

Freedom Dog Park

The Freedom Dog Park will be a large, grassed doggie playground but of course it needs really secure fencing and proper access gates to keep all our doggies safe.
And with a construction budget of $15,000, we are asking for your help to make this dream come true for our doggies!

Do You See That Doggie in the Shelter?

Back in 1952, traditional pop-singer Patti Page recorded the hit single “(How Much Is That) Doggy in the Window.” By her own admission, it seemed like a harmless children’s song at the time, invoking the doe-eyed puppies found at the corner pet shop.

Fifty years later, Patti (quite literally) changed her tune. With the majority of pet stores relying on puppy mills, Patti’s new lyrics encourage listeners to look to shelter animals instead.

Interested in providing a foster home for our dogs?

Tracy Samassa has made another wonderful video about fostering dogs for Doggie Rescue.

If we can find foster homes for our current doggies, we free up space to save more lives. Every dog fostered is one life saved. Can you help us by giving a home to one of our doggies?
