Who we are

We are a dedicated group of volunteers helping at-risk pets.  Our service area is Harrisonburg city and Rockingham County, but we have partnerships all over the state.  As an all-volunteer 501c3, we depend entirely on donations to help pets and their owners.

Our primary focus is keeping pets healthy and happy in their original loving homes.  If that isn't possible, we can help owners with the rehoming process.  We also work closely with, and support, other shelters and rescues in our area.

We always need:  pet food (cat, dog, kitten and puppy); gently used items like crates, bowls, toys and collars; and additional volunteers.  Our volunteers set up adoption and other events, assist at events, help individual pets and owners, and keep our online activities current.

If you are interested in donating supplies or helping, please contact us.

Helping Owners -- Keeping pets out of the shelter

The last thing we want is for more pets to end up in shelters. 

 

We work with owners who need:

 

  • Basic, advanced and emergency vet care,

  • Pet food,

  • Supplies, including crates and doghouses,

  • Transportation, and

  • Training/behavioral counseling.

Fostering Saves Lives -- We can only help if we have a foster

Simply put, fostering saves lives.  We get requests to take pets from distressed owners weekly.  The only way we can take these pets into our program is to have a foster home available.

 

Fostering is incredibly rewarding.  We match you with a pet in need, provide all supplies and vet care -- you just provide the love and patience.  Afraid you will 'fail'?  That's okay, too.  Think of it as a trial adoption.

Contact us to ask about fostering.
