Announcing our August Pets of the Month: MICKEY and CASSIE OLIVE!

Beagle/boston mix standing with a big smile on his face Stunning tortie waiting for you to pet her
MICKEY: Adult male Beagle/Boston mix
Mickey is a seven year old Beagle/Boston mix who was rescued from a hoarding situation. He has been fully vetted including a dental and is a healthy little love bug. At 16 pounds, he could use some good food, a comfortable bed, and lots of attention. He would be happiest as the center of attention, but does get along with other dogs. Cats are an unknown, but he does need to go to a home without children.
CASSIE OLIVE: Adult female tortoiseshell

Cassie Olive is a sweet little girl, looking for attention and love. She has a short tail that just adds to her charm! She would make a wonderful addition to your home and she is hoping you choose her!

FADIE: Adult female calico

Fadie is a chatty and affectionate darling of a cat who dreams of once again being in a home of her own… Can you make her dream come true? Fadie came from a home with children, and she is also comfortable with the other cats in our adoption center.

FANCY: Adult female American Bulldog

Fancy is a fabulous girl who is sweet with people and eager to learn. Sadly, she has grown up in a kennel, and she needs training and an understanding person. She will do best in a home with no other dogs.

Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary: Work Days

201507141734192397We are finally ready to move forward on our Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary project, and we need YOUR help!

On Saturday June 25th and Sunday June 26th from 8am until mid-afternoon we’ll be working again at the Sanctuary. There is a wide variety of small and large jobs to tackle, both inside the house and outside on the grounds. Please consider giving some time this weekend to help move the Sanctuary forward. The sooner we are able to get the place ready for occupancy, the sooner we will be able to relocate!

If you are unavailable to help on our Sanctuary work days, please consider supporting our efforts to build a new home for our cats and dogs by making a donation. Thank you for your support!

Goldie is RUSHING to find a home of her own!


Goldie is adorably affectionate and just loves to cuddle, but she can become overwhelmed by stress around other cats or around children. In a home of her own, she could relax and be herself—a consummate cuddle-bug who would be a great companion for someone! Please call 410-643-9955 for more information about adopting Goldie or click here to apply!
