The moment an injured dog or cat enters the shelter, the clock is ticking. The time they are allotted is even more limited than that of your average pet. Shelters simply do not have the resources to treat animals with extensive injuries or the space for them to recover afterwards. That’s where we come in. The Pet Rescue Center focuses on helping these injured or disabled, yet otherwise highly adoptable animals.
“The Pet Rescue Center saves what they can…and those animals are changing people’s lives and changing what
we think of as a rescue.” - Cheryl Hopper (Doe's adopter)
Placing them on the road to wellness is only half the battle though. Our goal is to see them not only physically recover but also ultimately find true happiness and love in a forever home. Sometimes the matches work out even better than we could have imagined. When Doe came to us after being hit by a car her leg could not be saved. Her courage on the other hand, was unwavering and she would go on to give her adopter the strength she needed to come to terms with her own disability.
