Meet our Founders


Jill has been prominent in the rescue community since 2012. She has taken part in rescuing more than 300 lives in only a few years. She comes from a family that has a long history with animals, from horse races to zoos and farming. Her compassion and patience speak true for those who’s voices cannot be heard.


Sheri was inadvertently coaxed into merely fostering a sweet senior dog, at least that was just the plan initially in 2013… years later she has taken part in rescuing over 200 lives and couldn’t feel more accomplished with her volunteer rescue efforts.

Our Animals

All of our rescue animals are examined by our veterinarian, treated for any illnesses, microchipped and given age appropriate vaccines prior to being adopted. All animals are spayed or neutered before being adopted. Our goal is to help reduce the pet population and the need for euthanasia due to overcrowding in shelters.

Our rescue animals are fostered in homes and treated like family. We encourage a cage free environment as much as possible. We temperament test the animals with children and other dogs and cats. We have the ability to experience their personalities in our standard home environments. Often it is difficult for our fosters to adopt out their foster animals as we grow to love and care for them, however the reward is the happiness in the new furever family and the ability to then rescue another animal in need!
