We rescue homeless and unwanted cats and dogs regardless of breed, age or health, get them spayed or neutered and other necessary medical care and then find temporary and permanent homes they need and deserve! We do not have a shelter. We rely on an amazing group of foster parents and boarding facilities to help us take care of the rescued animals that desperately need our help.

working with hospitals and libraries to share her own dogs with people who could use a "paw" up.
Together with her black cocker spaniel Huppy, Robyn visited Mount Sinai Hospital
and participated in the READ with Mudge program at the New York Public Library.
