Why we do what we do

The following simple story speaks to why we do what we do.

A sparrow was seen on the ground with its legs in the air. When asked what he was doing he said, “I heard the sky is falling so I have come to help.” The visitor laughed saying, “You can’t stop the sky from falling with those scrawny legs!” The sparrow replied, “One does what one can.”

Our efforts to reduce the number of pets in the system is a small number compared to the vastness of the issue, but even in small measure a difference is being made.

Our primary purpose is to help animals in our care, learn to trust and live happy, healthy lives for the rest of their lives.

Our secondary purpose is reducing the need for rescues

As a society we can continue to care for homeless, abused, and surrendered pets, but if we don’t look at the underlying causes, the number of animals will continue to grow. For this reason our secondary purpose is to provide community outreach and support.

We do this through a three-pronged approach:

  1. By offering sanctuary to surrendered, abandoned, and abused pets we reduce the number entering the overburdened pet shelter system. We also intend to expand so we can provide owners who are nearing death or entering long-term care assurance their pet will be cared for.
  2. Through community education and a community based participatory approach we reach pet owners on a peer-to-peer level and offer resource alignment for bridging the gap between best practices and what is doable for families and individuals.
  3. Utilizing online toolkits as a resource for pet owners who may be dealing with stress and emotion overload, we aim to reduce the cause of abandonment and abuse. Our toolkits utilize evidence-based methods such as mindfulness, art, journal-writing, music, and movement and weave them together with neuroscience, health education, and spirituality creating personalized toolkits.
