🌟We all know we cannot adopt every animal that pulls on our heartstrings, but we can still make a profound difference on animals in need. Our animal sponsorship program allows you to make a tax-deductible donation that will support one of our special foster pets!  Many of our rescued dogs have veterinary expenses that exceed the amount of their adoption fees. Your contribution will assist in offsetting these expenditures and ensure that we can continue to save more animals going forward!  Sponsorship directly supports the particular pet of your choosing which means your contribution will not be allocated to other program funds.  Each sponsor donation will support food, treats, beds, vaccinations, flea/heartworms medications, etc for that particular pet.  

🌟As a sponsor, you can establish reoccurring donations that will help different rescue animals throughout the year, or you can make a one-time contribution. Once you've decided you want to sponsor one of our pets below, then click the link "Pets name."  Once there, you will be able to choose the amount of your sponsorship and designate one time or reoccurring payments.  Please note name of pet you are sponsoring.  For sponsoring a particular pet, we will place your name as the sponsor & amount sponsored. (The sponsor(s) will remain under the particular pet for the entire year).  

🌟Thank you for considering to sponsor an animal in need. Together we can diminish the unnecessary suffering of animals and be their voice for change.

A dog's breed does not determine aggression, risk, or bite severity!

Recent dog bite incident data confirms that dog bite-related fatalities (DBRFs) and serious dog bite-related incidents are not a breed-specific issue; furthermore, the data also confirms that breed-specific legislation (BSL) is not only ineffective, but also entirely obsolete given the number of breeds involved in fatal attacks.

In fact, since only 2016, at least 47 different breeds and mixed breeds have been involved in fatal dog attacks (listed in Table 1 below) in the U.S. including: Akita, Boxer, Doberman Pinscher, German Shepherd, Great Dane, Husky, Labrador Retriever, Mastiff, Pitbull-Type, Rottweiler, and many others; moreover, the number of incidents associated with each breed is more closely related to each breed's population size and its risk rate than to any "inherent risk" in a specific breed or dog type.

While every serious dog bite-related incident is tragic, the number and variety of breeds implicated in fatal dog attacks is clear evidence that these incidents are not a breed-specific issue while also validating the importance of comprehensive breed-neutral regulations for public safety.

Additionally, the data validates what multiple peer-reviewed studies have concluded such as breed does not determine risk and that breed-specific dog bans (BSL) are ineffective because serious dog bite-related incidents involve many different breeds and mixes.

🌈👑Today’s blog is dedicated to our beautiful princess, Piper👑🌈

👑Piper, was taken into our rescue when she was just a small pup👑

🌈After arriving to her foster home, it didn’t take long for her to be a foster failure, and adopted by her foster family🌈

👑Piper fit so perfectly into their family and she instantly had a bond to her dog brother Diesel and her human sister, Bella👑

🌈Here is a note from Piper’s Mom “She’s obsessed with squirrels and listens better than Diesel! Piper loves to chase laser lights like a cat🌈

👑🌈Piper, you are such a smart and sweet girl and we look forward to seeing you and your forever family continue to make wonderful memories including adding a new human baby to the family soon🌈👑
