ONE DOG AT A TIME

GETTING INVOLVED

Save an Animal

ADOPTING A PET

Seeing our dogs find a loving home, fuels our passion to help more dogs. Our organization is committed to making the best match for each dog and ensuring their needs are met. We take the time to learn about them so we can give them the best opportunity at finding their perfect match. 

MAKING A DONATION

We rely solely on donations. Our volunteers host fundraisers to cover vet care and supplies for the dogs throughout the year.  We are not funded.  We have no paid staff. Your continuing support means we can provide the dogs in our program with the care and medical treatment needed. 

BE A FOSTER

Every dog relies on a foster parent to be their stepping stone to a better life.

DONATE

Don’t have time to volunteer or foster? Sign up to make a one time or monthly donation.
