About Us

You can make a difference in their lives by opening up your heart & home.

We are a non-profit rescue center for dogs and cats located on the outskirts of Nanjing city, China. We rescue, rehabilitate and rehome dogs and cats that have been abandoned, abused or are living on the streets. We wish to help as many animals as we can and have them feel loved and safe everyday. We provide them with the necessary vaccinations and microchip for their health and safety. We also participate in local education program to help the youth understand how to treat and cat and dog and what is the meaning of rescuing an animal.

Success Stories

Our furry hearts who've finally found a home

We love having Michi! We spend most of our free time exploring the neighborhood with Michi who loves to discover new places and people. The process of an international adoption can sometimes be stressful but for us it was totally worth it!

The Hart Family & Michi

Papi has been such a wonderful addition to our family! Despite all he’s been through, he is the sweetest, lovable and most protective companion. My favorite part of the day is right before I go to sleep he always insist on first receiving cuddles, so cute!! I am so thankful for Suzanne and Orik for teaching me so much about how to care for pets who’ve been abandoned. They helped to make sure I was well prepared to create a loving and understanding home for Papi.
