mission & vision

No need is too small and no cry is too quiet to be heard. We will devote the time, resources and energy necessary to educate, advocate and protect.


501c3 Charitable Non-profit Rescue​

We pull animals at risk of euthanasia from shelters across Wisconsin, as well as those left on our doorstep and surrendered by owners who can no longer provide care.  The animals we pull; Cats, Kittens, Dogs, Puppies  Gerbils, Hamsters, Guinea Pigs, Rabbits, Birds and various exotics such as lizards and snakes and many more.  We take the ones who do not fit the status quo of shelter work and are a financial drain on shelters with limited resources and knowledge in regards to dietary needs, adequate housing and proper care.  These animals are at a much higher risk for euthanasia and death.  We are, often times, their last and only hope.Type your paragraph here.
