Approximately 7 million pets will die this year in shelters across the US. Some die humanely with lethal injection, some will be thrown into a gas chamber and die a slow, frightening death, some will be shot, or beaten.

The stories we read and each dog's story is heart-wrenching, the numbers of those we can't help are overwhelming, and everyday we are haunted by the faces of those we can't save.
We cannot stop. We will not stop, until all of the cages are empty.

For example: Do you have an active family that likes to hike or run? Or are you looking for a quieter family member to cuddle with or provide companionship? Our goal is to make a l
