We only accept cats and small animals into rescue. We ceased our services to dogs in March 2015.
Currently we are full and expect to be full without being able to accept new animals until we adopt 15 cats out. We base this estimate on how many fosters we have and how fast adoptions are happening. You can continue to check our website or call to check for vacancy in our program. We are not currently keeping a wait list as it has become impossible to get to the wait list in any reasonable timing. If you are looking for a referral we recommend contacting your local humane society, PetSmart or Petco stores near you.
