Sully is coming home!

Thanks to our wonderful friends who gave financial gifts, we were able to send Sully to specialized training for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome). Sully was rescued from what we believe was a criminal dog fighting ring. After he was rescued, Sully was shy and skittish.

Sully has been with his trainers for about 4 weeks now. He is becoming more confident and less shy. Soon, Sully will be coming home and once again, I am reaching out to you to support Sully.

Sully will need a home to go to when he is finished with his training. We hope to find Sully his Fur Ever home, but a good foster home would be wonderful as well.

Sully needs to be the only pet in the home. And he should be in a home with children over the age of 12.

Sully is a sweet boy who has had a tough life. He just needs someone to love him unconditionally.

If you are interested in supporting Sully either through adoption or fostering, please email Sue at

We got it! LET’S BUILD!

I am very excited to announce that we have received the long sought after permit from Brevard County that allows us to begin the construction phase of the Sanctuary! We now focus on converting 17 acres of Florida brush land into a first class 11 building campus with multiple dog runs and pastures specifically designed to give animals the best opportunity to find their forever homes.

Thank you for giving us amazing support throughout this process. Now we begin construction and look forward to bringing you on this amazing journey with us. Please click here to read our Case for Support and learn about the details of our plan. We need our community partners as we move forward and know we can count on you. Please help us share this news with your friends and the rest of the community. Everyone has a way to help save the lives of the many animals that need us whether it be through a donation made below, connecting us with businesses that can help us build or just getting the word out. Now is the time to make this dream come true!

Let’s do this!
