The journey to a forever home can often be a long one for shelter dogs, with many individuals helping out along the way. We feel it is important to note that shelters and animal control facilities are a very important part of this journey. More often than not, shelters are filled with caring and concerned employees and volunteers who aid in transitioning individual dogs into more ideal solutions for their needs. For many dogs, this means finding their way to rescues like ours. However, we could not do what we do without the amazing folks from local shelters who contact us to help with dogs who are either not getting interest in the shelter, need more attention than their resources can cover and/or who cannot handle the shelter environment. We acknowledge and commend so many who work tirelessly every day to help wonderful animals who otherwise cannot help themselves.
