Our new play yard...
Our beautiful, remodeled Cattery...
Dogs are often brought to our front gate at the rescue. Gabriel was brought to us as we were writing our Christmas letter
He is now our special Christmas angel. As you can see he has been starved.
It’s not unusual that we get dogs in this condition and still each time it’s very shocking and upsetting to us. We are committed to give him the love and care that he so deserves.
Please help us give him a new beginning. Your donations help so many who come to us in need. We thank you and appreciate the support.
A special thank you to our wonderful veterinarians...
Dr. Totman, Dr. Thompson and Dr. Melissa.
Thank you to the Neighborhood News for placing monthly pictures of our available animals and showcasing our adoptable pets. Diane and Lauri are such a tremendous help and we appreciate their generosity and support . Thank you!

Canned Dog Food
With your support we have been able to continually rescue the many kennel dogs who come to us in such great need.
The cost to rehabilitate these dogs is tremendous. Most have never been provided with medical care.
We start with grooming. deworming, vaccinations, microchips and then on to the Veterinarian for spay, neuter and often, much needed dental care.
This picture is just a few of the many arriving at the rescue.
To all of our friends,
Thank you for your support.
While the homeless pets wait and hope to find the perfect, loving home, your donations make it possible for us to help provide them with the proper care and a safe, loving environment.
We appreciate your continuous support!
Often someone will bring a dog on Craigslist to our attention. We saw Sunny and our heart went out to this old boy who lived in a pen in the desert, no longer able to breed and of no use. He was now being sold.
We offered the breeder the fee she was asking and Sunny was transported to RFSC. He came filthy and in need of some extra food.
We showered Sunny with love and the care he needed, gave him a soft, warm bed indoors. He responded with such gratitude he would prance as we walked him on the leash.
Sunny knew he was loved. His beautiful white coat was now a picture of beauty. Our wonderful vet neutered him and after a few months of care he was now ready for adoption.
This past weekend his new mom came for him. She said she just wanted to give an old dog a home for the few years he had left. At age 12 this will be his first thanksgiving and Christmas in a home being part of a family.
We wanted to share our joy with you.
Thank God for the opportunity to help dogs like Sunny and for bringing kind people who stepped up to rescue this fine dog.
