Please come out to our open house and help us donate to Kelsey Romanowski who is in need of a Diabetic Alert Dog. We decided to help Kelsey after hearing her story on the radio. Read her story here.


We are in need of some items for the animals. Please check out our Wish List page if you can donate something.

Special Thanks to Lloyd Wilkiel for his generous donations, including adopting all of our animals!
