Hidden Gems

Hidden Gems are wonderful companion animals that are not “on display” in our public adoption gallery because they do best in a calm and quiet environment outside of the public adoption area. These animals are readily available for adoption – please ask for an introduction!

Hidden Gems

Special Needs

We rescue and rehabilitate all healthy and treatable animals. When an animal in our care is suffering (from a chronic illness, challenging behavior or a terminal disease) and are deemed unhealthy or untreatable, we do everything we can to find a rescue group, family or person willing to take on their special needs. We recognize that the animals on this page will need special care and possibly expenses beyond a healthy pet, so we are waiving their adoption fees.
