Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Finding Shelter is a no-kill animal rescue committed to the saving, rehabilitation, training and permanent placement of dogs and cats in need.

A strong commitment to animals and the people in the community allows us the opportunity to assist and educate humans and save and protect animals. Our goal is to raise public awareness to the plight of animals and the beauty of adopting a homeless animal in need of forever loving care.

The careful screening of all of our potential adopters allows the best match possible between animal and adopter.

All of our animals are spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated and medically treated. We do not discriminate based on breed, age or health status of the animal.

Our animals come from shelters that frequently euthanize for space, from owners who can no longer care for them or when an owner is terminally ill and needs the peace of mind to know their beloved pet will be safe and loved. We also accept and place companion animals who are unwanted, neglected and released from puppy mills and need a second chance at a full and happy life.

Finding Shelter is an all-volunteer animal rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of homeless animals.

Finding Shelter was inspired by Sprout, a little, blind chihuahua who was found as a stray and was in great need of rescue. Founders Grace and Steve Herbert knew they had to do something to help the 3 pound dog who was found on the side of the road and taken to a county shelter. They took him in as a foster with plans to get to a point where he could find a forever family. But Sprout was very underweight, afraid and sick. After an initial visit to the vet, it seemed that Sprout's future was looking grim. He had a gran mal seizure and it was suggested that Sprout be euthanized as he was expected to live only two weeks. In their hearts, Grace and Steve knew that the little dog with a healthy appetite had lots of fight in him. He needed a chance and they decided to give him one. So they started hospice care for Sprout and a miracle began to unfold. Sprout began to gain weight, learn commands, walk on a leash and even play. His personality began to shape and the smallest of milestones like drinking out of a water bowl, wagging his tail and playing with another family dog were celebrated. Sprout was adopted by Grace and Steve and has far surpassed the two weeks that he was expected to live. He continues to thrive and inspire the people who love him.

Grace and Steve were no strangers to animal rescue. Previously, Grace was the Executive Director of another no-kill animal shelter and all of their pets came from shelters or rescues. It seemed only fitting that the Herberts begin an animal rescue as a no-kill, safe haven for adoptable pets like Sprout who just needed a chance.

Finding Shelter provides the most loving care for the animals who need their help finding a permanent home. It is an organization based on love and respect for animals, supported by an incredible group of volunteers who work together to give these animals a quality life and the best chance for adoption.
