Mazel (R165340) heard her chances are great for finding her perfect home at our Adoption Center. At 3 years old, this wide eyed lady has a lot of love to give, and can’t wait to share it with you. If big cats are your thing, you’ll want to meet this fine young lady. There’s more to love with Mazel! #GetYourRescueOn #catsofinstagram #adoptablecats #adoptme #rescueme #catoftheday

Help Me Heal Update: We are happy to announce that Magoo has his surgery to repair his facial defect! He now has a complete lip! There’s a chance that the flap we created might not receive the blood it needs to survive. However, we are hopeful that it will heal properly. He’s currently on a feeding tube only until the flap has healed. Help us continue the life-saving work that we do by clicking the link in our bio and making a donation to help cover the cost of his much needed medical care. #HelpMagooHeal #HelpMeHeal #linkinbio #speedyrecovery

Cha-Cha is a recent rescue pup from Yulin China, by way of our rescue partner The Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation. This handsome boy is looking for an active household with plenty of room for him to run and play. Cha-Cha gets along well with other dogs, so a canine sibling would be be ideal. #GetYourRescueOn #puppies #puppyoftheday #adoptablepuppy #adoptme #rescueme


Tito (IR1252) is as sweet as they come. This young male is super shy , but once Tito comes out of his shell, you'll see that he'll become the most affectionate dog. After a few walks and treats, we know you'll win him over! He would do best in a quiet home with a patient and understanding pet parent who can share walks and play time with him. If you are interested in meeting him, send an email to #GetYourRescueOn


Mr. Sneed knows the power of monthly support — he could barely stand properly when we first saved him from a puppy mill. But with long-term care, he is happy and walking comfortably.

Imagine if your impact could double to save more lives like his? It can! Become a monthly donor by 2/22 — your first 12 gifts will be matched by a generous donor. Give monthly today! Link in bio.



Our adorable, adoptable felines received these beautiful #Valentines themed blankets to keep them comfortable during their stay with us. Thank you to our volunteers and associates for taking time out of their schedule to make them. #HappyValentinesDay


Take one look at Nash (T98506) and you’ll find it near impossible not to smile ear to ear! This one-year-old Doberman mix is all about having fun and giving lots of kisses. Nash would do best in a home with an active and attentive household, as he craves attention and love! If you are interested in meeting this goof ball, send an email to

This just in: A generous donor is offering to MATCH every new monthly supporter’s gift for the next 12 months. If you’re ready to share your love for pets year-round, then don’t miss this chance to double that love for cats & dogs... like Pretty Kitty. Her name fits the face, but neurological deficiencies required special care for the first 3 years of her life. Pets like her need dependable support, so please hurry. This offer only lasts until 2/22. Double your monthly giving power today! Link in bio.


Like if you agree.
