Finding Shelter Animal Rescue began on January 1, 2010 as a no-kill rescue for dogs and cats. Finding Shelter was inspired by Sprout, a blind Chihuahua who was abandoned on the side of the road in November, 2009. Sprout was sick and afraid and was expected to live only two, short weeks. He had quite a bit of fight in him for such a small guy, but on February 1, 2012, Sprout lost his battle with hydrocephalus. He was and will continue to be our inspiration and we will continue to honor and celebrate his life.

In continuing with this tradition, we’re holding our 10th annual super-adoption event in honor of Sprout’s anniversary. Please come out and celebrate with us!
