Mission Statement:

We rescue and rehabilitate animals, primarily small dogs. Our mission is to provide safe homes and health care for stray, abandoned, and abused companion animals, and to provide education of the general public regarding the responsibilities of ownership and the humane treatment of companion animals.

Primary Programs:

We rescue companion animals from abusive situations, abandonment, shelters, backyard breeders, and other situations.

We provide all necessary health care for these companion animals prior to placing them in loving, forever homes.

We have a network of qualified foster homes where our animals are cared for and taught basic skills prior to adoption.

We also place and provide for companion animals with senior citizens who would not otherwise be able to afford a companion animal.

Most of these animals are rescued from and placed in New Mexico homes. However, we also rescue animals from out of state and place them in surrounding areas such as southern Colorado.
