Mission Statement:

To alleviate animal suffering by providing sanctuary from abuse, neglect, and homelessness;

To end the killing of healthy animals as a method of population control;

To teach that animals are intrinsically valuable, worthy of respect, compassion, and care.

Primary Programs:

Currently our efforts are focused on dogs, who live safe and free here while they recover physical and emotional health. All are spayed or neutered, receive appropriate veterinary care and excellent nutrition. As needed, they receive homeopathic and herbal remedies, nutritional supplements, chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, and western medicines to address acute or chronic physical or behavioral symptoms. When they are ready, we help them to join new human families.

If an unexpected condition such as cancer is revealed, or a traumatized dog who functions well in this environment cannot adjust to the requirements of life as a "pet" and is considered "unadoptable," we do everything possible to help them achieve comfort and happiness and they live out their lives here.

We regret deeply that we cannot take in every dog who needs help, because we do not kill dogs to make space for other dogs. We see each dog through to adoption into a new family or to old age and death. We do euthanize for untreatable suffering.
