Critical Care

We are proud to be one of very few rescues who take in the most difficult and/or critical medical cases. Other rescues, the city's Animal Control and our neighbors look to us for help and support. 

Unfortunately we are always at the brink of our financial boundaries which forces us to consider scaling down our Critical Care Program. This would restrict us to only taking in the animals that are already adoptable and leaves us unable to save the ones that truly need us

We have to ask for your assistance to save these truly helpless and homeless animals. Whether it is illness or injury they suffer from, with your generosity we can help heal them and give them the second chance they deserve. 

Please donate, they are counting on us every day.

Sincere thanks to Joseph Weidlein, Meghan Horwitz and Lauren Pak for this video.


With your generous donations, hundreds of critically injured animals who would otherwise not be given a chance could be saved and given a second chance at life.

So many of our animals have benefited from our Critical Care Fund, many of whom would never have been able to regain their quality of life and a chance to find their forever homes.  When a critical need is identified for one of our animals, we make an urgent plea for help through our website and email messages to our supporters. Unfortunately, many medical treatments and required follow-up appointments exceed the estimated costs.  For this reason, it is always necessary to have reserve funds available whenever possible.

Medically Challenged Recipients
Once rescued we may discover that an animal has extensive medical needs that can be addressed by quality medical intervention. Many times, the animal will require surgery for either a preexisting medical condition or physical trauma previously sustained, i.e. by having been hit by a car.

We cannot do this alone. We need your help. Please consider a donation to our Critical Care Fund today. You may mail a check directly or donate via Network For Good by clicking below. We appreciate your ongoing support.
