It takes a lot of people for a rescue to work.   Our dedicated people at times travel great distances, we foster and care for every darling that becomes our charge, arrange for grooming, vet visits, teach them, socialize them, do home checks of prospective new forever homes, conduct interviews, and - in general - work very hard to find a perfect forever home. 

We appreciate the foster families who find it in their hearts to take these wonderful animals into their homes to become part of their families and get them ready for their forever homes!  It is the love for our Berners that guides us in the most satisfying adventure together.  It truly takes a village ------  Thank you !

We want to express our deepest appreciation to 'Doc' Rick Broz whose determination was so instrumental to the rescue of Piper.   Without him, she would never have been caught.

He took the time to join us at the September 20 meeting, and it was a sheer pleasure to have met this incredible man.

Thank you, Doc !

This is Draco/Ernie - the little guy who had the heart defect from last year.   All grown up  at nearly 1 year and doing just fine.

Here's Sweetie off to her new home on Saturday.   She's living in Pennsylvania now and has a cat or two for four legged company.


These are some of our placed rescues.
