My passion for kindness.
From the beginning I strived to create a solid foundation. First and foremost, to be a model of kindness to people, not just animals. To learn and maintain the highest standard of animal care, to learn from others, and to collaborate with social agencies and animal welfare groups.

Our mission is to nurture, honour and protect the human/animal bond.
