As the COVID-19 Pandemic impacts our country and the world, we are also taking steps to ensure safety. At this time, we have made some adjustments to our protocols to allow Home Visits to be done "virtually" (via Skype, Facetime, etc). We will still continue our rigorous process of vet checks, background checks and face to face meetings of dogs, however we will work with our approved adopters and foster homes to ensure the comfort and safety of all.
At this time, all adoption events through the end of March have been canceled.
Please do not think our fosters/volunteers who introduce dogs to you are rude when they do not shake your hand.
Please do not be surprised if you are offered gloves, or are asked to do meets outside.
There will be no Foster Orientation programs, Dog Walking orientations or other group gatherings until (at earliest) April 4th.
We will work to assist in keeping the community safe and not spread this virus, however we also have the animals who need care and forever homes. If you are an approved foster home and would like to pick up a new foster dog, please contact
The impact to the animal community, rescues and shelters is immense. We are unable to purchase our normal supplies of bleach, bleach tabs, paper towel, disinfectant cleaners, laundry detergents...even dog food! We use Kirkland as our base kibble and mix in the various foods that are donated. At this time we are limited to one bag of each type of Kirkland food per day. That will not feed 200 dogs! We are fortunate to still have the fabulous Stella and Chewy's which gives our dogs the amazing balance they need, but kibble is still needed.
If you are able to donate any cleaning supplies or dog food, it is greatly appreciated. Please contact
We are receiving so many requests to surrender animals that people cannot care for any longer or cannot afford due to health or career situations, and are trying to do what we can. We will continue to do our best to save as many as we can during this time of crisis and chaos.
Please remember to be kind. If you have a neighbor who can't feed their dog, help them. It may keep that dog in their home. If you see a stranger in need, try to help where you can. We are all in this together.
We are grateful for the support of such an amazing community.
