Lost & Found Animals


If you need to find your dog a new forever home, we MIGHT be able to help. BUT We can only take in animals when we have open fosters willing to house your pet or open spaces at the Rescue Center. Complete a owner surrender request form by clicking the link to the left. Submitting a form does NOT mean we will take your animal, however we will process for consideration.

Owner Surrender


Rescuing abused and neglected animals is not an easy task, it requires funds and support from our supporters. We hope you will come support us at one of our many events. Doing so you are helping us continue to save more lives!
