Can't spend a dime? 
Then, spend some time... helping us help those in need.

 We Are a non profit corporation formed by a group of volunteers dedicated to enriching and saving the lives of abandoned animals, dogs and pets.  We will support and assist other rescues and shelters with medical costs and educate the public through programs designed to inform people of the need to spay, neuter, adopt, foster and support rescues and shelters.


1335 Mineo Drive, Punta Gorda,  FL 33950 US

We want to help educate and inform the general public with respect to issues related to homeless dogs and other animals through publications, presentations, promotions, advertising, and all other effective or available means.

Together, we can make a difference


We exist to end needless suffering

                      of dogs and other pets who have been

abandoned and are sick or injured.

​Many of these dogs have serious injuries

or diseases that require immediate or

emergency veterinary care.  If left untreated,

it sometimes becomes necessary for the animal

to be put to sleep.  We know that we cannot

save them all, but with the help of generous donors

and  our fundraising, we will strive to

save as many as we can.

Let us know how if you want to help save lives.
