Finding Shelter is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, no-kill, volunteer supported animal rescue organization dedicated to the saving, rehabilitation, training and permanent placement of dogs and cats in need.

Operating since January 1, 2010, we are inspired by Sprout, our tiny, blind Chihuahua who, even after his passing in 2012, reminds us every day that saving the lives of homeless animals is no small “feet”!

They may be lost and running scared
They may be left alone
They have a chance at finding shelter
They’re never far from home

Special Programs

Finding Shelter operates Special Programs that are near and dear to our hearts: The Ray of Hope Fund, Finding Peace, Sprout’s Angels, and Finding Answers. Each of these programs benefits both animals and families alike. Each of these programs also requires support from people like you!
The Ray of Hope Fund is in memory of our own little Ray and his journey into rescue and the peace he found at the end of his life. Ray had lived his life with very little medical care, but still showed strength in his final days. The animal(s) currently listed in the Ray of Hope Fund are in need of or are recovering from surgery. Please consider donating to Finding Shelter to help cover the cost of their medical care.
