We aim to raise people’s awareness about animal cruelty and encourage them to take part in eradicating this problem. Our goal is to find all our rescues a forever home that provides them with all the love, stability, and structure that they need and deserve. We actually look forward to the day that we will go out of business. When that happens, it means that every animal in this world has already been saved from cruelty and can sleep in comfort, being lavished with love by pet owners who truly care for them.
Our organization provides rescue care and rehabilitative services to abandoned and abused dogs in the Stockton area. We also offer foster care and process their adoption placement to their new homes.
