We are a nonprofit organization focused on helping make the world around us a better, happier place. With the help of our tireless staff and our personal in-depth training sessions for our volunteers along with our rescues. We strive for greatness for our rescues and do so by testing each individual animals temperament in numerous environments to pinpoint their positive and possibly negative characteristics to find their perfect forever home.
Each day many pets are either found on the streets, or turned into local shelters or rescues. Some are babies, some are seniors, others have behavioral or medical issues the list goes on and on.
We started out with the mind set that we are going to rescue only Armenian Gamprs. Many people have no idea what a Armenian Gampr is. A Gampr is a livestock guardian breed that is a land-race breed from Armenia. They are a large or even an extra large breed ranging from 80 pounds to 140 pounds. They are not a recognized breed from the AKC and are not widely known in the United States. Many are often confused with Anatolian's, Central Asian Shepard's, and a few other breeds. Many of the shelters around the US don’t have Armenian Gamprs listed as a breed in there Data Base.
As we began it came to our attention it is a lot more difficult to find Fosters and placement for large dogs. We have many volunteers that are willing to foster small and medium sized dogs along with Cats. So why stop at trying to just save Gamprs? The cost of food and medication for one large 100lb dog, we can save and place over 10 smaller cats or dogs. Alot of lives can still be saved.
With all of this being said we have changed our mission. Armenian Gamprs have a huge space in our heart, we decided that we will continue to save them but they will not be the only animals that we will set out to rescue. It is our goal to help as many animals as possible, wither it’s a cat, dog, bird, or horse.
We thank everyone for the support and can not wait to see what is in store for us. We have so many great ideas and projects that we want to get started like pet food donated to families that can not afford it, senior and youth programs. All of this is possible with the help of our followers, supporters, and donations.
