This rescue is named after two very special dogs that I was blessed to have in my life. That the universe found me to be worthy of such a gift is forever humbling. This rescue is their legacy. It is based on Connor and Millie's sheer tenacity and determination to survive; their desire to love, be loved, and the ability to forgive.

We are looking for experienced fosters who have the knowledge to care for senior dogs or dogs with medical issues. Our dogs have been traumatized and will need special care and attention. Please only adults with their own homes and transportation apply. If you rent, we require a letter from your landlord approving dogs to be fostered. We welcome Vet Techs and medical personnel.
