Meet Roxy...

This super sweet two and a half year old German Shepherd is in need of a foster or adopter, can you help? Her current family has had her since she is a puppy but can unfortunately no longer keep her. RR's good friend has been working with her on basic training and socialization and has called us in to help finding Roxy the perfect home. Today we had a great time visiting with Roxy in and walking her with one of our balanced test doggies. Young Roxy is kid friendly and good with same size balanced doggies, no cats, no small dogs. She 80 lbs., house-trained, spayed, up to date on shots, and ready to meet you. Please consider being Roxy's hero.


Meet Pumpkin...

Calling all heroes!🙌 Our super sweet, senior Pumpkin is ready to start her brand new life, could it be with you? She has nothing but love and tail wags for everyone she meets including other animals. She is sure to waddle her way into your heart in no time. Our favorite chi mix is a whopping 21.5 lbs so she has quite a few pounds to lose but we are confident with continued exercise and tender love and care she will be fit in no time . Pumpkin was found abandoned in a grocery store parking lot on a Sunday morning. Fortunately one of our loving supporters kept her safe until we arrived. Please consider opening your heart and home to our Pumpkin.


Meet Stanley…

Stupendous Stanley is quite possibly the biggest and goofiest meatball we have ever met. His jolly disposition and huge pitbull smile makes him the most popular boy everywhere he goes. Stanley loves doggies and everyone he meets. He enjoys taking long walks with his human, never paying any mind to cats, squirrels or anybody else he meets along the way. Stanley also enjoys car rides and is fully housebroken. He is super in his crate and looking for a place to lay his squishy head. Please consider being his hero today.


Meet Echo…

We are ecstatic to welcome special need Echo into our rescue. Echo, who is fully blind, was picked up running as a stray. Clearly he was dumped by some heartless human and we can only imagine how petrified our little boy must have been alone and scared on the streets. St. Francis must have been watching over Echo because he was delivered safely to the shelter where we rescued him from. From the moment we saw this boy we knew we were meant to help him. And let me tell you he is every bit as wonderful as we thought and then some. Echo is dog and cat friendly and loves everyone he meets. His halo helps him navigate safely in new environments


Meet Luke…

1 year old Luke was found tied to a pole with electrical cord around his neck along with a chain and padlock. Luck was on his side because he was found by some loving folks who took him in and showed him nothing but kindness. Unfortunately, unable to keep him, despite how much they loved him, Like was facing going to a shelter which is when we stepped in and placed him with one of our amazing fosters. He is super dog friendly, both large and small. He loves every dog he meets wherever he goes. He is housetrained, crate trained, and has so much love to give.


Meet Olive…

We wasted no time getting this super sweet, cat loving, and dog loving Cane Corso to safety when we found out her owner had listed her on Craigslist. 6 year old Olive was dumped because her disgustingly selfish owner decided there was no longer room for her and the human baby on the way.
Olive is the funniest, goofiest, wiggliest little happy butt in all the land! She is a dream to walk on leash and this romping baby Clydesdale will make a wonderful addition to any family. She loves dogs and a cat was her best friend in her former home. Olive is kid friendly but due to her size and exuberance when playing older kids will be ideal for her. She's house broken, crate trained and ready to meet you.


Meet Otto…

We rescued 8 month old Otto after he was abandoned at the end of a street in Rockaway near the bay. We had been working on freeing him and three other dogs from a horrific situation on the same street. The four dogs had been chained outside on a filthy porch on two foot chains with no break for 13 days straight. The people ended up taking the other dogs inside after speaking to law enforcement but for some reason they dumped this precious guy. We will never know exactly why but we are thankful everyday they did.

Otto is currently in foster and he has been loving every minute of it. He and his foster mama have been enjoying long walks on Rockaway Beach and lots of playtime at home. Otto even helped his new foster mom babysit her friend's French bulldog Penny. They all had so much fun. His foster mom can't say enough about how fantastic our boy is. There is something about justbeing in his company that makes you happy.

Otto is crate trained, doggie friendly (both large and small), cats unknown. Please consider giving Otto his fairytale ending by making him part of your family today.


Meet Libby…

Libby is one of the sweetest, gentlest dogs you will meet. She is dog friendly and super affectionate, not to mention very well behaved. She wants nothing more than to please her humans. Liberty came from her only home of seven years that had young children. We think our stunner would be a perfect fit for almost any pack.

We pulled Libby off death row on 4th of July after she was heartbreakingly abandoned at Animal Care and Control by the only family she has ever known after living with them for 7 years. Please consider opening up your heart and home to Libby.


Meet Laura…

We were alerted to Laura's need for rescue back in June. She was very pregnant and had just been found in Philly with a belt tightly wrapped around her neck affixed to a pole. As soon as we saw her face and looked in her eyes we felt a connection with her and knew we were meant to help her and all the little lives inside her. We whisked her away to one of our very special foster families who kept Laura and her babies safe until the pups were all adopted. Sadly Laura was overlooked and is still waiting for her happily ever after. Our super silly, roly-poly seal pup Laura is such a goofball. If you are looking for a dog that will keep you laughing, likes to cuddle, and is the perfect combination of playful and calm then look no further. Laura is your gal. She is 4 years old and good with male doggies her own size, and loves absolutely everyone she meets. Please consider opening up your heart and home to help her on her journey to happily ever after.


Meet Meet Lyla (Phoenix)...

This super sweet little girl was intentionally burned and left for dead by humans. She was sitting on death row when we met her and welcomed her into our rescue. Fast forward to today the once scared and confused Lyla is now relaxed and playful. She loves nothing more than frolicking in the garden and relaxing in the shade while we water the plants. To say she is sweet is just an understatement. When she is not enjoying our yard she loves lounging on the couch with her favorite bone. It's hard not to fall in love the minute you meet her. There is something so precious and unique about our girl. Please consider being her hero today. She is 2 years old, doggie friendly, and will do best in a home where she can join an already balanced dog or where she can be the only dog and showered with all the attention. Please consider opening up your heart and home to Lyla.


Meet Mia…

This incredibly sweet 6 year old earth angel was abandoned in an apartment and left to fend for herself. The people who owned the house the apartment was in took care of her for quite a while but are no longer able to keep her so they reached out for help. She is a wiggly and happy girl who loves to give kisses and cuddle under the blankets. Mia is 60lbs of gentleness and is great with kids and everyone she meets including doggies. Her exceptional leash skills make her a dream to walk. Please consider opening your heart and home to this precious girl. bsp;


Meet Willow…

We were contacted by someone who was desperately searching for help to get this girl safe. Her story is all too familiar; a young owner gets a dog and then dumps the dog on family members when the responsibility gets in the way of their personal life. Only in this story, sweet Willow was dumped on elderly grandparents who physically could not care for her. The family even attributes the unfortunate passing of the grandfather to the care of Willow, being he had to go up and down stairs to let her out, and he was not supposed to do stairs and suffered a heart attack... Then grandma fell numerous times trying to walk her. After trying for quite some time and being turned down by every rescue and no-kill shelter, to avoid her "suffering" in a kill shelter, they were just going to voluntarily euthanize her. Looking at this hopeful face with such softness in her eyes, we couldn't say no.

Willow is about 4 years old, and her sweet, shy disposition is remarkable. She's perfectly house trained, walks beautifully on leash and is extremely responsive to commands. She's great with other dogs and kids. Please consider giving this angel the furever she deserves.



Meet Casey...

We rescued Casey shortly after we received a call that he was in danger of being euthanized. His former owner found out her new apartment was not going to allow him there and according to her she thought he might actually be better off dead than without her. Lucky for Casey we were able to convince her that this wasn't the case and now he is safe with us. Sadly Casey's owner hadn't even realized that he was deaf.

Our precious 4 1/2 year old boy has the biggest heart. He enjoys leisurely walks, playing fetch, and last but not least cuddling up on the couch with his people. Casey absolutely adores the company of other doggies. Casey is deaf but is quickly learning hand signals - he's eager to please and his hearing impairment doesn't seem to slow him down at all. He's a great dog with a huge heart and he's just busy loving life now that he's safe. 


Meet Maddie...

An angel among us... Sweet Miss Madeline has had a rough start to her short life.  You see, Maddie's previous owners didn't think she deserved to be a real member of the family.  So they kept her confined to a shoddy wooden box that was pinned up against the exterior of the house, alone and afraid.  

She was starving, freezing and injured. Her cries for help went unanswered until a Good Samaritan pleaded with her "family" to surrender her to rescue so we could properly care for her and get her much needed, long overdue medical attention. She has now undergone two eye graft surgeries to repair an old trauma, and her once emaciated, frail body is now strong and healthy.   

Despite the horror she endured at the hands of humans, this angel loves everyone she meets.  She has the most infectious "smile" and her sunny, playful disposition is remarkable.  Maddie loves other dogs and kids.  She is about 3 years old, petite at 43 pounds and she is a bulldog/pit mix.   

Maddie is looking for her furever family to love and cherish for all of time.   Won't you give this sweet girl the life she was always meant to live?


Meet stunning blond brindle Walter White...

Walter came to us after narrowly escaping death. He was literally being walked to the kill room when he was pulled. 

He's an absolute sweetheart, goofy and beyond happy go lucky. Walter is about  three, he LOVES dogs and and just wants the love of any human that crosses his path.  Walter is about 60 pounds and ready for his furever family. He would be the perfect addition to any pack
