2017 Annual Fund Drive


River wanted to give up. You could see it in her eyes. Her confidence was at an all-time low after her family brought her in and moved away.

And as if that wasn't enough, she was also suffering from severe respiratory infection.

Your support gives pets like River a future.

A gift of $72 will give 2 pets like River shelter for one day, and lifesaving care.
