Mission Statement

The mission of A Little Patch of Heaven Animal Rescue, a 501c3, Federal non-profit organization, is to rescue and supply any animal, nationwide, regardless of age or medical condition, with love, shelter, food, human companionship, medical care, and spay-neuter services through local veterinarians until permanent placement is secured into a prescreened loving home, as long as the dog is not dangerous to humans or other dogs.

A Little Patch of Heaven Animal Rescue will accept into rescue any animal who is either abandoned in a shelter or living with an owner who can no longer supply care. We also participate in rescue and placement of K9’s who are pulled from the Puppy Mills or purchased at Puppy Mill auctions.

We wish to eliminate the euthanasia of any healthy, adoptable animal in our county. We do not accept euthanasia as a means of population control for animals. We believe each animals life is meaningful and each deserves a loving home.

Educating and informing the public about the commercial pet industry in America and about responsible pet ownership is also very important to us, as well as reviving the spirit of volunteerism across our country.

A Little Patch of Heaven Animal Rescue is composed of approximately 7 people, and volunteers that are willing to foster, transport, or otherwise assist in this massive rescue effort. We are supported entirely by donations andfundraisers. We have helped rehome almost 350 pets to date, and hope to continue the efforts.

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Our vision: We hope to see a day when there is no longer a market for puppies sold in the pet shops of America. Then and only then, will the suffering endured by thousands of companion animals in the puppy mills of America, cease.

Our Future Goal: Our goal is to ensure that no K9 is forced to live his or her life in a Puppy Mill or needlessly euthanized anywhere in America because of the lack of medical care or an available, loving home.
