“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
Below are just a few of our current residents. Many come from neglectful situations and never had the opportunity to properly socialize, develop appropriate “pet” behavior and integrate into a loving home. Because of this, they are viewed by many as “unadoptable”. And, when dogs are branded unadoptable, the general reaction is to euthanize them.
This practice is unacceptable to us, and although we cannot rescue all deserving dogs, we are doing our part to help those we can by providing them a safe and peaceful environment in which to live out their lives. They now spend their days running; swimming, playing and relaxing in the sanctuary’s various play areas warmed by the sun. While some may believe this amounts to excessive attention, we find it is minimal effort in return for their loyalty, love and devotion to us and each other.
