Our mantra is that the animals are our clients, and we will find the best homes for them. Some of our animals have led terrible lives. Some have been crated for their entire lives, only allowed out of the crate to take care of elimination (and sometimes not even then). Others have been chained outside without shelter and often with limited food and water.
We rescue animals! That means that we do not rescue perfect animals. We rescue puppies, kittens, old dogs, old cats, animals that are ill with heart worm or cancer, blind, deaf, with only three legs. We rescue animals that have lived in a loving home all their lives, but we also rescue animals that have been beaten, starved, and abandoned. Each of these animals has different needs. There is not a “one size fits all” philosophy in rescue. That’s why we have adoption applications and why we interview our Volunteers devote countless hours, with their only return the joy of seeing a pet go to a good home. The idea that we would keep this from happening is patently absurd. The more animals we place in good homes, the more we are able to take in from the shelters.
