What makes “Our Waifs” Special…

  • If we share responsibility for a homeless animal, it will not be killed for lack of a home.
  • We will treat it as an individual, not a statistic, and do everything in our power to give it needed care and protection and insure it a good lifetime home.
  • We will try to adopt to people whose history of animal care we know, and for those we don’t know, we have an extensive application, interview, and screening process.
  • We follow-up to assure ourselves that the match is a good one and that it’s working out well, or we take the animal back!
  • We do everything we can to educate and support people to provide excellent, humane care.
  • Because our Waifs are usually in foster care for a while for rehabilitation, they are often part of bonded pairs by the time they’re ready for adoption…
