What Drives Us

Our Mission

The eastern end of the Coachella Valley is historically underserved and lacks basic resources for abandoned and stray animals. Our mission is to become a resource center for low-income dog owners and abandoned pets alike. We will continue to change lives one dog at a time.

Get Involved

Help Us Save More Dogs


Saving homeless dogs takes a team and every person is instrumental in giving the dog a new life. If you would like to join our pack, we need transporters, dog walkers, dog groomers, fundraisers and grant writers. Please fill out the Volunteer Application and we will call you.

Be A Foster Parent

We are able to rescue more dogs by using fosters. Whether you enjoy the experience of changing a dog’s life and getting them prepared for a forever home or your looking for a dog and want to become a failed foster, please fill out the Foster Application and we will call  you.
