Vaccine Clinic is this Saturday! -- Wednesday May 4th, 2016

Due to having all these animals it is important that they all be safely restrained, either by being in a carrier or on a regular leash (not a retractable).

In memory of Charles Suydam -- Thursday April 7th, 2016
Today we are doing something a little different. We are honoring a very good friend to our rescue and to many people in Lower DE. Charlie Suydam, who at 90 years young passed away peacefully on April 6th, after a brief illness.
He and his daughter, Beth Suydam, have tirelessly supported our rescue over the last couple of years since we met them. They have helped other local shelters as well. Their moral support and friendship has meant the world to us and our rescue animals. If we ever needed anything, they were there. RIP Charlie. You will never be forgotten.
