Our mission is based on Nathan Winograd's No Kill Philosophy, which states that all healthy and treatable homeless animals have the right to live.

Our Move Is Complete!

The dogs are settling into country living at Tri-Lakes, 2020 Bunn St, Bloomington

We have many opportunities available for volunteers, whether it involves contact with the dogs, doing office work, volunteering at events or data entry from your home.  

Dogs who may otherwise be destroyed at an overcrowded shelter are temporarily placed with you, their foster family, until a forever family is found.
