The rescue's namesake, Sage - being rescued after hours of running away from rescuers through the streets of midtown. Sage was used as a "bait dog" which are used to fight and train bigger dogs how to kill for the purposes of dog fighting.

Trap & Release
We set up traps to capture stray cats, which will be neutered then go up for adoption or reintroduced into the population.
Children's Animal Educational Classes
We have children from 4-18 interact with out dogs/cats/guinea pigs to teach them how to handle animals safely. The children will also be exposed to other animals we may have at the rescue such as pot belly pigs, birds, lizards and non-venomous snakes.
