Helping thousands of lost
unwanted, neglected, abused
and abandoned animals every year.

We are currently seeing a high number of Husky / Malamute breeds arriving into our care. We are now looking for owners with experience of these breeds who are looking to add another member to the family or who can even foster for us. If you are interested, please email Thank you!




Our objective is the promotion of kindness and prevention of cruelty to animals.

We reunite lost animals with their owners and find loving new homes for those no longer wanted.
