Local owners who can no longer keep their dogs due to various hardships and from high-kill shelters all over the West Coast. They accept dogs from Washington, Oregon, California, Hawaii, Texas, New Mexico as well as Mexico.


Partnering with communities overwhelmed by their homeless dog population, they help work to ultimately lower the euthanasia rate in those counties. They also serve as a collection site for donations that they then disperse to the immediate community as well as their partner shelters along the West coast.
