Scope of Services

    As an organization of animal lovers, we pull dogs from the Brownsville Animal shelters and                 provide foster homes until they are adopted. We strive to match each dog with the right family             after the dog has been observed in a foster home.  We provide all medical care including                       vaccinations and food to the dogs as well spay/neuter and microchip.  We take our dogs to                   PetSmart to look for potential "forever" pet parents & homes to adopt these homeless animals. We     work with other rescue groups – locally, statewide, and nationally.  All animals remain in our care       until they are adopted which can range from weeks to years. In addition, we assist local citizens           with maintaining and keeping their dogs.  This may be done through assistance with medical              expenses, spay/neuter, food, education, and displaying available adoptable dogs.
