​​In the Spring of 2003, a dedicated group of animal lovers met to discuss the possibility of building and running a no-kill animal shelter in Bradford County, Pennsylvania. By the end of that year, we were incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, formed a board of directors, and began planning and fundraising to build the shelter. We are currently a member of the Central Bradford County Chamber of Commerce and the Towanda Business Association. ​

  • Build a no kill animal shelter that will provide a clean comfortable, safe, and healthy environment for each animal.

  • Provide public educational programs to promote harmonious relationships between companion animals and their humans to end cruelty.

  • Strive to return stray animals to their homes, and to aggressively seek suitable homes for homeless animals through adoption, fostering, and​ collaboration with service organizations.

  • Build a strong spay/neuter program within the community and offer help to those in need of emergency medical care.

  • Fund the organization by soliciting memberships, grants, and donations to support our programs and operation of the shelter.
