In our first 12 years, we've saved over 12,000 animals and placed them in loving "furever" homes! In 2021, we placed almost 1,200 animals. We adhere to a No-Kill animal welfare philosophy which means we do not euthanize animals to create
space. We partner with shelters that are overcrowded, we work with 14 Lehigh County and 1 Berks County municipalities to take in stray dogs and cats, rescue dogs and cats from natural
disasters, accept dogs and cats from owners who need to relinquish them, and work to place animals into loving homes.
Thank you so much to our supporters who allow our mission to grow!!
