Our Founder and Director, Leo Grillo answers this question best. His words can be found on the “About the Facility page” on this web site:
“I’d rather not be a hero, adopting out our animals and STEALING homes away from animals in the pound – wonderful animals who will be killed only because they can’t find new homes.

National statistics are that Americans on average only keep their pets 2 1/2 years! Shocking! I wrote the first book on adopting animals, and I made a star studded video about it. Then I discovered that lifetime adoptions are rare. My animals have been victimized already and I promise them that I will not risk their lives ever again, so I do not adopt them out. Better to give a 2 1/2 year life extension to a poor pound animal who is about to be killed in a system that does not work.” – Leo
