OUR MISSION: To provide safe and loving homes for companion animals who would otherwise be destined for premature euthanasia at local shelters.
There are 45 cats and dogs for every person born. Only 1 out of 10 dogs born ever get a home. Only 1 out of 12 cats born ever find a home. 800 dogs & cats are KILLED each HOUR in the U.S, because there are not enough homes for them. Opt to adopt. Don't buy-especially from a pet store!

The Howl-o-ween Carnival was awesome and raised $1,004 for SOS. That is a record amount for this event. Deb McGill is amazing and put so much time and energy into this to help our cause. So we say Thank You, Deb McGill! Also, we say Thank You to Sharon Center Veterinary Hospital who was so kind to let us use their newly renovated facility. We know all who attended had a great time and we all look forward to next year.
MEET BAGLEY - OUR AWESOME HEARTWORM SURVIVOR!
Hi, Iím Bagley! They say Iím a BagelÖ.a Bassett/Beagle Hound mix. Iím a super sweet guy that is shy at first but, when you pet me and I figure out I can trust you, Iíll be your life long pal! I play well with other dogs after an introduction, and donít mind cats. I had a rough start in life, and until I came to live with my foster family, I hadnít ever been inside a house!! Iím still pretty scared of loud noises and strangers but, if youíre by my side, I feel better about those things. I had heartworm, and it was horrible but Iím all better now. I am almost completely house trained, and do well when you have to put me in my crate. Iím 6yrs old which means I still have enough energy to hang all day, AND Iíve mastered the adult things like sleeping at night & chewing only my toys and not your shoes!! I really like to learn tricks, I already know sit, and wait and eh-eh when Iím doing something I shouldnít. I want to learn shake and sit up and anything you want to teach me! I think I want a home without little kids, they are full of energy and make a lot of noise and that scares me.

The only way to stop 3.7 million needless deaths is to stop overpopulation. Spaying and neutering is the best & most humane method. Here is a link to some affordable spay/neuter programs.
