Congratulations the Winner of the Masters Tourney:

Pete Falcone! 


Grover is a handsome 5-year old Beagle/Jack Russell terrier mix, and he's rearing to go to find a new 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. 


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.  

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.  


Want to Adopt at an Event, or have you fallen in love with one of the adoptable dogs on the website?

Apply and get pre-approved now!

October 17th: 

The Normal Theater is screening Redemption, Nathan Winograd's film about the No Kill Movement in America. Join us to learn more about our important mission, with a presentation by Nathan himself after the screening!
