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 remaining dog, DaVinci, who is still looking for his forever home. You can find details on DaVinci here.

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 very happy that so many of you are willing to open your hearts – and homes – to our animals. Thank you.

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 …
