Our Companion Animal Rescue's chief guiding principle is to always do the right thing for animals, regardless of the cost or challenge. We are committed to helping animals in need today, while also providing programs to prevent animals from becoming homeless. One hundred percent of our capital campaign (construction at the Ashford Sanctuary) and 99% of our operating costs (vet bills, pet food, various Sanctuary and Program Center operational expenses, etc.) are made possible by the generosity of the community. There are few non-profit organizations, animal-related or otherwise, whose ability to serve its constituents is so closely tied to the voluntary philanthropic support of the public.
