How To Get Help

When someone finds themselves in a situation where they need temporary help for their pets, our volunteers will work very hard to accommodate all requests. We also provide temporary care for anyone who is hospitalized and needs a helping hand to care for their pets.  Our rescue has also worked with our local Mental Health organization to assist clients who need temporary foster care for their pets.

Prior to taking in a dog or cat and placing into foster care, we require the animals to be up to date on vaccines to provide safety for the pets of our foster families.

Once arrangements are made and a foster family is available, we have an agreement that needs to be reviewed and signed by the owner of the animals.

Our volunteers and foster families are big hearted people wanting to make a difference and they DO!
