With our no surrender fee and no questions asked policy, we provide care for small animals who can no longer be kept by their owners for a variety of reasons. We welcome any type of leftover pet supplies at the time of surrender that you care to donate to the rescue.

Rehabilitation and Special Needs

We work to restore health to animals who have been found, surrendered or rescued from abused situations with the goal of getting them into a new home. For animals whose health cannot be restored, they will remain with a volunteer foster home and be provided hospice care services.

This also includes pregnant females, possibly pregnant females and litters.


The best part of our jobs! We will work with you to find the perfect animal to fit into your home. After being surrendered, every animal is health checked and given a new name to fit a new life! He or she will then be fostered out or kept here while waiting for the right family to come along and showcased on this website. Each adoption fee will be priced according to the individual animal’s care needs. For more information, please see the available animals section

Understanding Pet Loss

The largest downside to sharing our lives with small pets is knowing that they won’t be with us long. If you are struggling with grief after a pet loss or are unsure what to do when a pet does die, call us. We will help you do what needs to be accomplished with sympathy and understanding or just be an ear to listen.
