It takes an entire community to keep a shelter like ours running. We survive solely on donations from people just like you! It is always difficult to ask for community support. However, this shelter is not just for those who volunteer and work here; it's for the entire community...and most importantly it's for the innocent dogs who deserve to be safe and in loving homes for the rest of their lives! Please take a minute to see our list of requests. Hopefully there is something listed that you can contribute. We are very grateful for any and all donations, no matter how small or how big. Every little bit helps.  You could help us rescue and save another life today!  Thank you for all your continued love and support!


Monetary donations help keep our shelter running, and allow us to save the most lives!  All monetary donations go to directly supporting our shelter to pay bills such as rent, utilities, and vet bills.  The more monetary donations we receive, especially monthly commitments, the more it allow us to grow and commit to saving more dogs from death row!  Monthly giving is so great because if we know we have money we can count on every month, we know we can cover our organizational costs, and can take in more pups in need of TLC.  Natalie's favorite dogs to take in are the elderly, injured and mistreated kids, to give them that second chance where other shelters won't or can't.  Nearly 50% of our funds this year have gone towards veterinary supplies and expenses, and the rest to dog food, supplies, rent, utilities, transports, and running and maintaining the shelter!!  Help us save more dogs from death row and puppy mills by committing to monthly giving!  Or of course, if you can't commit to that at this time, you can make a one time donation, or help in a multitude of other ways!  While you are always welcome to stop by the shelter and donate in person, we do have easier more convenient options as well, such as Might Cause, PayPal, Facebook, and the mail! 

We are always in need of volunteers.  We need people to walk dogs, help keep the shelter clean, do laundry, give comfort to the dogs that are afraid, sick or sad.  Even help keeping our neighborhood cleaned up!

 Remember: We are a 501(c)3 organization, and your tax deductible donation goes directly to the dogs!
