2017 Prevent Cruelty


Lucky Sue had terror in her eyes as she took her first tentative steps toward us. Her past was a mystery but all signs pointed to a rough life.

Animals like Lucky Sue need you to take a stand against cruelty.

Thanks to you, this Labrador mix has a bright future.

But thousands more need you.

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

We envision a state where each companion animal finds a permanent, compassionate home, where communities are enriched by the special bond between people and animals and where cruelty no longer exists.
