Save Pets of Today saves pets EVERY day.  Won't you join us?

Note: The dogs we post with kill dates are not with our rescue but are in county shelters who will kill them on the dates given. We do not kill dogs.  On the contrary, we do everything to save them, like posting their pictures and info here. We will pull these dogs from the shelter and vet them and find them homes but we need a foster home where they can stay while they wait for their forever home. We will not sugarcoat or hide the fact that dogs are killed everyday in county shelters because there are not enough homes for them.  Please read the Letter From A Shelter Manager.

Adopting A Friend

Our adoption procedure consists of an adoption application, a homecheck/homevisit and communication with the family's current veterinarian. Every one of our animals are spayed/neutered before going to their new forever exceptions, so please don't ask.

All our dogs up for adoption have a donation fee. The fee depends on the dog; breed, age, size, and medical expenses incurred by rescue.

Please Join Us

We are not a shelter but individual foster homes. We always need volunteers. If you have any room in your home and heart, please consider fostering! If you can't foster but still want to help, contact us.

Rest In Peace - Humans Failed Him
RIP - Humans Failed Him

If you find that you can not adopt from us, please adopt from someone else. A list of local shelters and rescues can be found right here on Petfinder. There are millions of homeless animals counting on you to do the right thing. Don't breed or buy while homeless animals die.

Foster Homes and Volunteers Needed

BECOME A FOSTER HOME!! Temporary foster homes are such a vital part of our organization since we operate through a network of foster homes rather than a shelter facility. One person CAN make a difference in the life of a dog or cat. The more foster homes we have, the more dogs and cats we can save. Sometimes it may be hard to let go when an adoptive family is found; however, it is very emotionally rewarding to know that you have helped save the life of the animal you foster.

Please consider opening your heart and home to a dog or cat while he/she waits for a "forever family". Becoming a foster home is EASY and the biggest way that you can help. First, complete our foster home questionnaire and then a volunteer will contact you for a home visit. At that time, we will go over what is involved with being a foster home and discuss how involved you would like to be in the adoption process. 

Foster Homes are always needed. Once you have your foster animal, it is important to be patient and allow time to adjust to the new surroundings. As a foster parent, you will play an important part in a successful adoption by observing the habits of the animal and helping to determine the type of home that would be best suited for the pet. The foster family needs to provide LOVE. Help make a difference today!! Remember, "Saving one pet may not change the world, but it will change the world for that pet!" VOLUNTEER TO HELP!! We could not operate without the hard work and dedication of volunteers who want to help make a difference. If you are interested in becoming a foster home or volunteering in other ways, please contact us!

Spay/Neuter InformationA shelter is a terrible place to live and die.

The only way to make an impact on the pet overpopulation crisis is to spay and neuter your pets.

For information on free or low cost spay/neuter, please email us.

Help End Dog Fighting

Meet Oogy...very lucky to have survuved the horrors of being a bait dog!Oogy the dog was only four months old when he was tied to a stake and used as bait to teach other dogs how to fight in the disgusting world of underground dog-fighting. Viciously attacked by other dogs, the left side of Oogy's head, from behind his eye to his ear, was torn completely off - his jawbone and skull irreparably damaged. He was then thrown into a cage where he would have bled to death if not for the sudden raid on the dog fighting ring by the police who took Oogy to a vet who nursed him back to life.

Despite his horrible ordeal, Oogy is a real sweetheart and was adopted by a loving family.  He now makes appearances to put a face to the horrors of dog fighting ."Oogy’s story reminds us to see with our hearts and that for every heinous act, there is good in this world—and that is something worth fighting for," says his owner, Larry Levin.

10 things to do if you suspect dog fighting.
