Who We Are

We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) facility offering long-term care to dogs and cats until they can be found a loving forever home. We are a true no-kill facility. Only suffering animals with untreatable conditions and those rare, unpredictably vicious dogs (average less than 1 per yr) are put down. (Feral and 'barn' cats are allowed to roam the grounds freely after spay/neuter if space permits). Located on over 11 acres near Cassville in Southwest Missouri, we have one Operations Manager and 5 staff members, and exist with a handful of dedicated volunteers and the good will and generosity of people who care about the welfare of animals. 
Our cats live in Community Rooms with plenty of space to climb, play, and hide, and are caged only when in need of isolation to maintain good health for all. One room has an outdoor area, with plans for more. 
Our dogs live in large, outdoor pens - most 16 X 16 for 2 dogs, and 30 X 90 fields holding 3 dogs each. They enjoy access to fresh water, food, shelter, and shade, with swimming pools during warm weather.

 

   OUR MISSION STATEMENT

To rescue the abused, abandoned, and dumped animals in the area. To provide loving care, medical attention, and socialization in as homelike an environment as possible. To provide sanctuary to those deemed "unadoptable". To educate the public on humane treatment of animals and the importance and impact of spaying and neutering dogs and cats. To do our part to put an end to pet overpopulation, abuse, and inhumane treatment of animals. Euthanasia is necessary to be humane to a pet, not to control population.
