Our VISION is simple .........
An animal sanctuary in Miami County, a facility supported by community volunteers and donations to provide necessary vetting, long term quality care, exercise, socialization, training (rehabilitation and rehoming) to companion animals residing in county shelters deemed "urgent" in OHIO. This would offer a better opportunity to find the right companionship with a forever family and include a pet related resource center for the community.
- We are currently an ALL VOLUNTEER network
- We have NO facility; FOSTERS are always needed.
- Our RESCUE EFFORTS include fostering, transporting, training, sponsoring, volunteering, fundraising, Facebook posts & sharing, Meet/Greets, Courtesy postings, and many other activities to help furry companions - primarily canines find new homes.
We also "partner" with other pet related resources and rescue groups to help place and rehome RESCUED PETS.
- Assistance to REDUCE the OVERPOPULATION of cats and dogs - thus reducing euthanizing.
- PROVIDE resources to EDUCATE the community about "responsible pet ownership" and rescue opportunities.
- RAISE FUNDS to help with necessary vetting for the pets we rescue, rehabilitate and rehome.
- ADOPT (rescue) from OHIO county shelters canines deemed "urgent", provide necessary vet care, rehabilitate (via foster homes and train) and then re-home. Felines are currently being rescued through the Miami County Humane Society.

Did you know ? Most OHIO county shelters are frequently over capacity;
numerous puppy mills and back yard breeders in OHIO are contributing factors
to the overpopulation. Over crowded shelters and few adoptions cause a pet's stay
to be short lived; county shelters were established for a short-term housing of pets,
never long term housing or caretaking. It takes a community to FIX the problem of overpopulation; SPAYing and NEUTERing will REDUCE and STOP over-population
and keeps pets healthy !
