Critical Care Fund
Our Critical Care Fund helps us save and treat the ill, injured, and the most "medically needy" dogs in our rescue. It helps us fund heart worm treatments, injuries, parvo, dental issues, and any other issue that may affect our dogs.
We will never turn our back on an underdog and our Critical Care Fund helps to ensure that goal.
Please consider donating to this amazing cause. Every penny helps.
