Friends! We need your help! We found a passenger van that would be perfect for our transport program!!! It’s currently for sale and we need to raise $7,000 as quickly as possible to get it!

We can’t tell you the importance of getting another vehicle and what it would mean for our transport team!

When you donate to help us get our new vehicle, you are helping save thousands of lives simply by helping them hitch a ride to their new shelter, where they are usually adopted within the same week that they arrive! They not only help us open up valuable kennel space, they help with heartworm babies, nursing moms, and seniors who normally have a hard time finding homes in our area!

Please help us save more lives by donating towards a transport van!

Thank you ❤️❤️❤️

How much of donations is used for the animals & how much is used for big salaries, nice office furniture....?

I am playing Devil's advocate here: How many miles...what is the condition?? For $7000.00 it couldn't be very good! Are the tires good...they will cost $800.00 a piece!

Hey there friends!!! My name is Tarzan.
Are you looking for a loyal best friend, a free fitness trainer, and a lovable goofball to make your life complete?

I may just be the boy for you! I love people, hugs, and playtime! I’m also known to sound just like a small child crying when I get super excited!

I love everyone and everything! I love other dogs, but they should be prepared to want to play! I am seriously the best of both worlds! I can be very calm and gentleman like and also be very playful and outgoing!

I’d be an awesome road trip companion ❤️

Come by the shelter and meet me, Tarzan! P.s. I have a nub tail 😝
