Our mission is to help animals that have found their way into kill shelters from neglectful owners.
In West Virginia, for example, the laws are somewhat non-existent. There are no leash laws, no restrictions on how many animals one owner can have on their property, and the food stamps that folks can qualify for can be used for dog food. They do not always give these dogs vet care so they are sometimes sick, and many have never even been to the vet for puppy shots, deworming, etc.  At the one particular shelter we frequently visit in West Virginia, in a bad month they could euthanize 150-200 dogs and that includes males, females, puppies & pregnant moms regardless of breed or temperament. People do not spay and neuter so there are more pets than owners.
We also rescue from another high kill shelter in Bowling Green, KY.  That shelter is forced to euthanize at alarming rates as well.  In one month, they could put to rest as many as over 500 dogs and cats but we try to do our part in finding new homes for animals that need us.  Once again, there is little or no vet care and certainly not enough animals being altered to control the problem by pet owners.
Very often shelter workers will save dogs for us as long as they can. They do try to help as much as possible on their end but sometimes their efforts are in vain simply because they have so many strays in the area, surrenders and dropoffs, and hoarding situations that are dealt with on a daily basis.
We are trying to make a difference and feel that we are as our numbers approach 1,000 animals taken from the shelters and rehomed successfully.
Our ultimate goal is to end the sadness for these animals.
Rescue because they need us… Rescue because you can… Rescue because they deserve better…
