How do we use your donations?



In 2012 we helped Viola, Rufio, and more than 1500 others!

In the first 10 months of 2012 our Foster Program rescued 443 cats and dogs found as strays or in danger of euthanasia at a local shelter. In addition, we provided 1167 spay and neuter surgeries to cats and dogs in our community.

We couldn't do this work without you!

Did You Know: Cats are living longer than they used to, nearly twice as long as they did in 1930.
