All donations are tax deductible.
Please contact us if you are in need of a receipt for tax purposes.

Our rescue is 100% volunteer; there are no paid staff  within our organization.

All funds donated go strictly to the care, vetting, and if necessary, boarding.

We do not use any funds for fundraising costs, stamps, gas, supplies, etc.
These are items that we pay for out of our own pockets.
If you would like to donate any of the below items, it would truly help us.  Thank you!
