General Information

As part of our mission, we assist with rehabilitation, rescue and adoption of animals.  

We encourage holistic and natural care of animals.  We are one of the few animal rescue organizations that will coordinate adoptions of naturally-reared animals. 


We are aware of MANY animals in need of forever homes.  We work with a large network of rescue groups and rehabilitators, so please contact us if you are interested in adoption or foster care. Periodically, we will post information about some special animals and urgent situations. 

We also keep a list of people who request to be notified or matched to a specific type of animal, so please let us know if you are looking for a specific companion.
