A litter of 10 puppies were abandoned and seeking help. They are loving their foster people!
This beautiful family of strays took up residence in a family's garage. They were brought to safety and found loving homes.
Sugar Plum & Gumdrop were strays that were rescued by the local fire department after climbing a tall tree and could not come down.
Hero, a very special dog who inspires us long after he left us, to persevere and keep focusing on each day as a new opportunity.

 Special Spotlight 


Fonzie is a very special cat! He checks ALL the boxes for being the most wonderful pet ever! He has the biggest heart, and loves everyone and everything. 

He is a special needs cat in that he is Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) positive. Fonzie was found as a stray with a large injury to the right side of his face. He appeared to have been bitten. This may have been how he contracted it, but it means he must be in a home with non-aggressive cats or he could also live with other FIV + cats. FIV cats can have a very normal life; they can have a high quality of life, and live for a long time. Sometimes, they test negative upon retest, as the test can turn up with a false positive. It is recommended the FIV + cat is retested in 6 months to confirm the status. 

Fonzie gives loving head butts, and has the cutest meow that you have to listen to in the video. He loves to chatter! And loves attention and loving. He would be a super companion for anyone that wants a very loving cat that seeks your attention. He will be with you everywhere you go. And you have to LOVE his polydactyl feet! They are absolutely fantastic!

Fonzie is fully vaccinated and microchipped.
