Successful Adoption Story
Biscuit & the Anderson Family

Just thought we’d check in and let ySuccess Storiesou know how Biscuit is doing. We’ve taken her on a few hikes and she can totally keep up. We went to a place in Auburn and she came back with red paws from all the red dirt! We soon realized she does not like baths! But she was a trooper and cleaned up nicely.

We are in need of assistance in the Orland area. Primarily we can use help in transporting dogs for vet visits and the like. Of course foster homes are always needed, but if you want to get your feet wet in animal rescue or have limited time this is a great way to participate.  Please email us if you can help.
