Our goal, with your help, is to make the world better for animals and their people.
We raise funds for the smallest, neediest rescue organizations all across the United States, and beyond. We distribute these “Little Guy Grants” daily on a most needed basis. We help people with pet emergencies. We work for the passing and enforcing of anti-cruelty laws. We work for and support everything that makes life more humane for all animals. We support spay/neuter legislation, and oppose Breed Specific Legislation (BSL). Most importantly, we rescue and re-home animals, which in the end, makes life better for people.
Thank you Wiley Miller, creator of Non Sequitur and champion of animal rescue.

Our Wonderful Tiger
This is Tiger. He spent 7 years outside on concrete at the end of a heavy chain, never knowing a moment of kindness.
When the people moved away and left him, the new renters gave a neighbor the weekend to find him a place to go, or be killed. Several rescues, including us, banded together to find him a perfect, loving home. He is truly our Cinderella poster boy.
