of Courage, Love, and Hope

A small, cute, and young dog, rescued from a puppy mill, finds love from both human and dog friends and, for the first time in his short life, reasons to hope.
He, and his fellow puppy mill-survivor friends need your help ...

If you, or someone you know, is thinking of adopting a kitty soon, consider doing it during our November "Cat Blast"! Anyone who adopts a feline friend during November will receive a $5.00 PetSmart Gift Card and one entry per adoption for a chance to win the “November Cat Blast” raffle basket...a Martha Stewart Cat Cave stuffed full of treats and toys valued at $105.00!
