We advance the welfare of animals and promote positive relationships between animals and people. 

We are Social Animals!

Donnet is a big girl in need of big love! Her temperament is sweet, and like all rabbits, she cherishes hop time outside of her cozy cage to give her legs a nice long stretch.

Donnet is great for the Netflix binger, content to sit at your side and take in your favorite show. Sound like the perfect match? Hop down to meet her today! #514457

Your Friday warm and fuzzy!

On Tuesday, we received 15 dogs and 3 cats (10 have already been adopted) from Memphis Tennessee courtesy of Wings of Rescue. Since our local shelter has consistently hit a 90% or higher live release rate (the criteria for a no-kill shelter), we've been invited to rescue animals from other states whose shelters are packed full. The animals we receive last minutes on our floor, as they're incredibly adoptable like Ellie, and we've got a great community of support in Pierce County. We literally could not do this life-saving work without you <3

We'll be at PetSmart Tacoma (by the Target) tomorrow from noon to 5:00 pm with adoptable cats and rabbits, so come love on our animals, and maybe even add to your family!

Then on Saturday starting at 11:00 am, dogs, kittens, cats, and rabbits will be available, hoping to find their fur-ever homes. It's going to be a great weekend for making happy happen :D

OUR MISSION

Creating positive relationships for people and pets is how we advance the welfare of animals in our community. As a local, independent 501c3 non-profit organization, this has been our mission since 1888. We provide sheltering and adoption services as well as pet care resources for families. Visit us in person or check out our adoptable animals and other services listed on this website.
