We run fully on charitable contributions! 

Your donations are the FOUNDATION for us to save precious lives and prepare each dog for their new home who may need a little extra time to find their forever humans.

Where does your money go?

The variable adoption fees and donations allow us to care and assist the less adoptable dogs with high medical costs and allow us to continue our rescue efforts.


If you were to pay a similar or higher fee through a breeder, not only would you not be helping an animal in need, additionally you would be paying for intentional breeding that has led to the overpopulation of dogs.

Please take a look at the information below which helps explain why we have adoption fees, ask for donations and where donations are applied.
