We are a small not for profit 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization dedicated to rescuing and re-homing toy breed dogs.
We consist of volunteer families and individuals in the U.S., who foster in our homes. We are always in need of caring people to temporarily foster them until they go home.
We only take in dogs that we are able to place in foster homes and not back into a kennel situation. Puppymill dogs need to learn to be in a home and not from one kennel to another.
We take in the old, the special needs, and at times, the young.
Although our main focus is helping any ex breeder in need, we also pull from kill shelters and when we have the foster space available will help with owner surrenders.
We do not have a physical shelter for people to just stop in and see the dogs.
We do not receive any government funding nor pay outside fundraisers. We rely entirely on donations and our own fundraisers to support our efforts.
Without our caring, dedicated volunteers and foster homes and people like you who support us, we would not be able to help these little survivors out of the mills and offer them a chance at a normal life.
There are no salaries here for what we do. We get paid with sloppy kisses and a warm body to snuggle up with while they are with us.
We don't count how many we have rescued thoughout the years, nor do we care. Our main goal is to rescue, rehab and place into permanent loving homes. In the years that we have been doing this only 2 have been returned to us because they were not working out in their homes.
Many of us started out with other rescue groups and then branched out on our own. We have been rescuing dogs for many years, with our first puppymill survivor coming to us in 1999. After that, we started focusing on helping these little souls have a life outside of a cage of misery. In October of 2002 we received our 501(c)3 non profit status.
Although we are a small group, we are a very dedicated group of volunteers.
