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.

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 Dog of the Week


Jade is a 3 1/2 year old female Boxer mix who weighs 72.2 lbs. She's a sweet and energetic girl who loves everyone as soon as she meets them! She knows sit, shake and down, and she's house trained! Yay, Jade!

Jade needs to be the only dog in the home and would do best in a home with children over 12 years old.
