                                Changing  The  World... One  Paw  At  A  Time​​!

Although our goal is to find wonderful forever homes for the animals that come into our care, sometimes the decision is made for that animal to join our Forever Foster Program. 

 This may be due to the dog's age, chronic or terminal illness, or other special circumstances. 

 When we commit to taking an animal into this program, it is a promise that we give that animal for its lifetime - to provide a loving home environment and medical care for it to live a full and happy life, and a peaceful and dignified passing over the Rainbow Bridge when the time for that journey arrives. 

 Thanks goes out to our amazing Forever Foster families who open their homes and hearts to these special animals and provide them with love and compassionate care for the rest of their days. Our Forever Fosters often have ongoing medical costs and special needs. Please consider helping us provide these deserving creatures with the care that they need - it is truly a gift of a lifetime for that animal.

Gertie is going blind and deaf and requires constant monitoring of her heart as well as several supplies like potty pads, blankets and of course, her special food. If you find it in your heart to help us make whatever she has of life, comfortable, please click on the paypal button and note "Gertie" before submitting your donation. 

Gertrude aka Gertie

I was dumped at a high-kill shelter in 2019 at 15 years old to live in a cage. My family decided I was disposable at such a fragile age. I was scared. All alone, malnourished and shivering on a cold stone floor. Then the best thing happened - me and my three teeth were rescued! 

I was pampered immediately and taken to the vet where we found out I had a bad murmur and what teeth I had, were completely rotten. Due to my heart condition, I cannot get my teeth fixed. The anesthesia can be too much for my fragile, tiny body -- But i'm enjoying my golden years!

My life, now is full of love! My forever foster, who I like to call mom, takes the bestest care of me. I have other dogs to boss around. I get to snooze all day long on cozy beds and warm blankets. Mom lets me cuddle up against her and melt right onto her lap. 

I never thought I would feel loved, happy and safe again. I am happy. I am safe. I am HOME. 


I was born with deformities that need special care. As a rhino iguana, my size is definitely smaller than normal but that doesn't stop me from running to my food as soon as I see it. I wasn't expected to live past a few days after hatching, but I am almost 3 years old! 

My owner could no longer care for me so MHR has been taking care of me and really need help with funding my numerous vet visits. They make sure my bones are of no issue to my vital organs and that it is all functioning properly. I will be cared for with proper husbandry by my forever foster until the rest of my days! 

Would you consider helping them, help me?

Quasi has regularly scheduled vet visits that always include large bills due to x-rays, blood work and additional tests that are needed to make sure he is comfortable and to assess his quality of life. He deserves a fighting chance.
