As we turn our heads to the future and watch the rebirth of our shelter … hope rises like a phoenix from the ashes.

Join us in our mission …

DaVinci is the last of our “fire dogs” available for adoption:

We have adopted all but one of the animals rescued from the fire. See the video for our two remaining dog, DaVinci, who is now looking for his forever home. You can see more details on DaVinci here. With thanks to our friends at AWCA-TV, for the video!

Sweetpea For Animals is a nonprofit, no-kill animal rescue organization. We take in animals who are on “death row” at other shelters, or whose owners can’t keep them but don’t want to surrender them to a kill shelter. We rely on donations to run our animal rescue. The November 2015 fire cleaned out our whole year’s operating budget – and then some. We had just taken a mortgage on the shelter facility when the rescue shelter building burned to the ground. We are renovating the main building, which housed the boarding kennels as a subsidiary shelter and kennels while we rebuild.  If you would like to contribute to our disaster recovery fund, please use one of the donation links in the sidebar.
We are very happy that many of you are willing to open your hearts – and homes – to our animals. Thank you.
