Making a Life-Changing Difference

Giving Back

We are pleased to actively improve the lives of companion animals by assisting non-profit organizations with essential resources and solutions.


Rising Awareness

In addition, we also promote animal welfare by organizing community events for both children and adults, such as Yard Sales or 5K Run/Walk events.

Our Story

Small Foundation, Big Heart

Companion animals want to love and be loved. Also, they continue to need our help.

Just like you, we love pets.

From day one, our efforts have been completely volunteered, yet our initiative saved the lives of many companion animals.

For nearly two decades, I have dedicated myself to rescuing cats (and dogs) in need.

How it all started? Well, it all started slowly and unexpectedly. When my two daughters rescued a week old kitten from a sewer in front of our house, little did I know that this single rescue project would lead to a life-saving journey!
