This organization assisted our grass-roots rescue organization and county animal services in rescuing, treating and re-homing multiple dogs and cats who were injured or otherwise neglected over the past year. They covered our veterinary care, feed and re-homing costs. Kudos to their people and board!

This organization was the only one I could find that would take my dog that was somewhat aggressive. Their animal behaviorist evaluated him and said that they would begin an intervention plan to change his behavior. To date, he is reported to be much better and living on their animal sanctuary in Florida until a home is found. The local shelters said they would not take him and animal control would have killed him. Thank you so much AFAR!
