What is an eligible pet adoption?
Our goal is to give the most overlooked pets a second chance at life through adoption: adult and special needs dogs and cats, and large dogs.
The hard truth is that a majority of these types of companion pets will be killed or, if in a “no kill” facility, can languish for months – or years – without a home or family to call their own.
