We Believe in Second Chances


Doggie Deliverance

In traditional animal shelters, 50% of dogs are euthanized before they can be adopted. Blossom Animal Rescue is changing those numbers with your help.


Hospice Haven

We make a pet’s last days their best days with round-the-clock care for elderly and terminally ill dogs and cats.


Kat's Cradle

Sadly, the first cats to be killed in most shelters are special needs cats. With your support, Blossom is changing this tragic statistic.



Life happens. We understand. Let us help you find a new home for your dog that will warm both your hearts.
