WORKING TOWARDS A BETTER TOMORROW

Our Story

Since November of 2011 the rescue has been growing.  It all started when two friends, working in a pet store, learned about the helpless animals being euthanized in the USA. At first, their efforts were focused on the high-kill shelters in California.  Soon after, they were helping local animals as well. As the network grew and more foster homes came on board, they were able to make a difference in many more lives.  They have hosted and participated in several fundraisers, community events and more!   Overall, they are so humbled to have countless volunteers and foster homes that help them on the journey of saving lives. Not having a facility or ‘shelter’, they rely on the community to provide a safe loving place.  All the in’s and out’s of the rescue are handled by dedicated volunteers.

what we do

RESCUING PETS

Our motto is that we do not discriminate against dogs based on age, breed, or location. We believe every dog deserves a happy forever home, which is why we rescue dogs both inside, and outside of, the Okanagan.

FINDING PETS A HOME

We do not euthanize to "make space". We work hard to find potential applicants, even if it takes a long time. Some dogs have stayed in our program for over a year. We want to make the right match - Not a quick adoption.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Volunteers are an integral part of our rescue. We are all volunteers and we are always looking for more help! Volunteering is a great way to help the animals, have fun and meet like-minded people.

EDUCATE

It's important to know how to care for a dog. We love visiting local schools to talk about our rescue animals and educate future pet owners on what it entails. We promote force free training methods as well as spaying and neutering.
