Donate via Paypal! Our medical expenses for foster pets far outweigh our adoption fee. Consider donating to help with medical costs and together, we can continue to save these wonderful animals!
These local businesses support our efforts! Some help by hosting our Adoption Days, some allow us to have donation boxes at their business, while others help
promote our animals.

"We must become
the change we want
There are many ways to help our animals! Find one or more that fit your lifestyle and available time. Volunteer with us!
1. Help at an Adoption Day
We often need an extra hand to hold a dog, carry in a cat, fill a water bowl or transport a dog or cat to the event. Adoption Days are almost every Saturday. Check the Contact & Events page for locations.
We help dogs from Berrien County Animal Control (our county shelter) once a month with THEIR OWN Adoption Day! One Volunteer = One Dog who gets to attend! Volunteer to hold and love a dog for 2 hours or help transport to and/or from the shelter in Berrien Center.
2. Help with a Fundraising Event, share ideas for one or even do a fundraiser for us!
Depending on the function, we could use your assistance helping care for animals who may be present, talking with people about the animals, selling tickets before or during the event, and set-up or tear-down.
3. Become a Foster Pet Parent
Often people think they do not have it in them to be a foster pet parent. You may be surprised! Fostering - backbone of our organization - is the ultimate "hands on" experience if you love dogs or cats! Fostering is nurturing an animal as he/she embarks on a new chapter of life. Any neglect or abuse is now behind them - replaced by your love and care that will change their life forever! Foster parents learn first-hand a dog or cat's behavior, likes, habits and maybe even quirks and this knowledge and understanding helps to find them the permanent home.
Medical care and often cost of food for foster pets is covered by Save A Stray.
