We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, fully volunteer organization based in the Finger Lakes Region of Central New York State. We are committed to our dogs' physical, social, and emotional well-being, and to finding them safe and happy homes!
Our goal is to keep dogs out of shelters and find them forever, loving
homes. We are not a shelter, all our dogs live in caring foster homes
in the central NY region. If you are looking to adopt, check out our
adoptable dogs today!
If you are looking to help save lives, but can't adopt, try fostering! It is such a rewarding process. Like our adopted dogs, all of our foster homes have undergone a several-step process to ensure the safety of our dogs.
We are a 100% volunteer organization. Every donation we receive is used entirely for the dogs. Bonus: As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, your
donation is fully tax-deductible! Help us save lives -- donate today!
580 Dogs Have Been Adopted Since 2005
What we do:
We rescue dogs from high-kill shelters, place them into loving local foster homes, and provide them with all needed veterinary care. We love them, care for them, help them with any fears they might have, and lovingly teach them basic manners while we look for, and carefully assess, potential permanent adoptive homes.
We provide ongoing consultation and support to foster homes and permanent adopters for the life of the rescued dog.
We promote compassionate dog guardianship through our public education efforts.
