Saving Sunny works to reduce the flow of dogs into the shelter system by providing education, resources, and advocacy for people and their pets regardless of socioeconomic status, race, gender, age, sexual orientation, age, or ability.


keeping pets in the home

Saving Sunny was founded in 2010 as a rescue + foster organization. Now, we assist pet owners with the ability to keep their dogs from ever entering the shelter system in the first place, through basic resources, advocacy, and education.

We have found that surrendering a dog to an animal shelter is often a last resort for loving families who may be living in a historically disenfranchised community and be struggling to find resources + assistance to care for their pets. Our Community Dog Resource Center, founded in 2014, is designed to lessen the flow of dogs into the municipal shelter by giving a helping hand to those in need. We believe that everyone is deserving of the companionship of a pet. Saving Sunny also continues to rescue dogs on a small scale, offers support to our municipal shelters through our CDRC, behavior, and courtesy posting programs, and provides education and advocacy through public events and campaigns.
