Why Us

Making a Paw-sitive Impact

With a primary focus on saving lives, our foundation is guided by three powerful purposes:


Pet Sanctuary

Over the last 15 years, our primary dedication has been to improve the welfare of neglected animals and make a positive impact on their lives.


Resource Aid

We take pride in enhancing the well-being of companion animals by providing vital resources and solutions to non-profit organizations.


Welfare Advocacy

Furthermore, we actively advocate for animal welfare through community events, including activities such as Yard Sales and 5K Run/Walk events.

Our Story

Small Foundation, Big Heart

Companion animals need our love and care, and they depend on our support.

Just like you, we love pets.

From day one, our efforts have been entirely volunteer-driven, yet our initiative has saved the lives of many companion animals.

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

How did it all begin? Well, it 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 mark the beginning of a life-saving journey!
