About Us

Mission:

To fund low cost or free spay and neuter, free vaccines and educational materials and to help with emergency veterinary care in some cases - to prevent pet overpopulation and to keep animals in their homes and out of shelters.

Organizational Overview:

I started this small non profit to fill what I saw as a huge gap in the services provided to homeless and low income people, including people on a fixed income or people struggling with a short term financial crisis. People love and need their pets, but the cost of caring for them is often completely out of reach. Often this means animals are surrendered to shelters. Everyone says to me 'no-one else does what you do'. That means either I am completely wrong, or maybe everyone else is! It doesn't matter - what matters is that people shouldn't have to choose between feeding their kids and having their dog spayed, or fixing their truck or taking the cat to the vet for a bladder infection. Help me help others in our community. Donate Now!
