NEED HELP?         Please, DO NOT give up.  We are here to help.


THE COLD HARD TRUTH

  • If you take your dog to a public animal control agency or humane society, it is considered  "owner relinquishment" and he/she may be euthanized immediately or within hours after you leave.
  • Rescues all across the United States are FULL which means they probably have no room for your dog.
  • "Free to Good Home" oftentimes means a death sentence, even if you ask for a rehoming fee. Many dogs on Craigslist end up being used as bait dogs (dogs used to hone the skills of aggressive dogs within dog fighting rings) or are used for "live shooting/target practice" in the desert. Horrific, but true.
