We are an animal rescue.
While it may seem that we are stating the obvious, it’s important to understand the distinction between boutique pet shopping and saving the life of a shelter pet through adoption.
We save lives. Every day. All day.
The animals in our care are coming from the most deplorable conditions imaginable… high-kill shelters, dump sites, and owner-surrenders. There are fleas, worms, and unspeakable injuries. With your help, we take these animals that humans have failed into our care. Then, we give them the treatment they need, and find them forever families.
Do you want to be a part of something amazing? You can. Simply foster, adopt, or donate.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Adopt?
We are not currently hosting meet/greets. However, we are happy to facilitate an online adoption. Please complete an adoption application (if you haven’t already) at www.4p4l.org/available-animals and we can send over the next steps outlined in an email.
One application is good for any dog in our care so there’s no need for multiple apps.
How Long Does the Process Take?
Depending on which pet you are interested in, the process can take 2 days to 4 weeks. All applications are answered within 3 business days.
How Much Does Adopting Cost?
Adoption fees vary depending on age and breed and include vaccines up until time of adoption, microchip, spay/neuter and 1st 30 days of free Pet insurance from a third party vendor.
-Puppy adoption fees range from $360-$560
-Adult adoption fees range from $50-$310
-Pure breed adoption fees range from $500-$1200
Can you take my pet into your rescue?
Our main focus is to keep dogs and cats out of high-kill shelters. The vast majority of the animals in our care have come from some of the poorest shelters in the country. We transport them into our care to begin a new life in a loving home. Often times we are at full capacity and cannot take owner surrenders. However, if you have to relinquish a pet, we will assess on a case by case basis. You can complete an owner-surrender form here.
I can't adopt, but still want to help...
If you cannot adopt but want to help, below are just a few ways we’d love to have you involved.
- Volunteer at our boarding facility, adoption events or special occasions. Complete a Volunteer Application here.
- Become a foster family. Fostering can be for one night, one week, or longer….it’s up to you. Complete a Foster Application here.
- Become a Whelping Foster. This is a foster who takes in dogs who are new mommies or mommies-to-be. We provide the food, medications, vaccines, and you provide a loving home for a litter of pups until they are 8 weeks old and ready for adoption. Complete a Foster Application here.
- We couldn’t operate at all without the help of our donors. Donate funds to our 501(c)3 organization. Even the smallest amounts help in large ways.
- Lastly, you can help in the comfort of your own home by sharing our social media posts and by reviewing us on Google or Yelp.
