      True Natured Rescue Inc. saves animals from the shelters, who are at risk of being euthanized. Most of the animals pulled from the shelter are considered "last call" and only have a few hours to live. While in our care, we strive to provide each dog or puppy an individualized experience.

      Yes, our goal is to save as many lives as possible but we also want to provide each animal, the opportunity to find their FUREVER home and a sense of safety & stability. Our goal is to get each animal their own special home. In a sense we are a match making service and attempt to match each animal with the best home for them.
