Samson Bear



“Rescued does not mean damaged, it means let down by humans.” We process our applications in the order in which they are received. We do our best to match our adoptable pets with the best possible placement.  Our adoption fees vary depending on the animal and typically includes initial distemper vaccines and spay/neuter at 6 months old at our local vet.

Fosters are a necessary part of what we do! You can be specific in the age, breed, size, etc of the animal(s) you are able to care for. Remember, fostering is not a lifetime commitment. This a temporary placement until a forever home can be found. 

We provide ALL the necessities associated with fostering (food, bedding, toys and any necessary medical care), you provide the shelter and love!
