Our referral list:

To be added to our list the rescue or shelter needs to commit to humane handling and training techniques otherwise known under the following terms: positive reinforcement, reward-based, scientific modern, force-free, fear-free, aversive-free dog training. Rescues that promote inhumane training methods known as traditional or balanced training techniques will not be permitted. We fight for the humane treatment of dogs and any animal before, during and after an adoption. Our philosophy is: a dog that is saved from one life sentence should not be facing the next because of poor choices made by humans. 

Our referral list is free of charge. We have the right to deny any applications to our referral list.
