501(c)(3) Non-profit Charity

It's not just a name, it's a fact.     
For the love of the four legged friends we adore and those who need to be given a second chance for a good life.
As long as animals are deliberately killed in shelters, there will never be enough rescuers.  The number of dogs and cats euthanized each year in shelters has decreased from 12–20 million in recent years past to an estimated 3–4 million annually. That is still 3-4 million too many.  In addition, the horrific gas chamber which takes up to 30 minutes of excruciating torture to kill the animals, is still legal in 30 U.S. states.  The animals need more help and YOU can be part of that.

See puppies under the Watch Me Grow tabALL Creatures Matter Rescue is here to help animals in need and ensure they get the care they deserve. Currently we are a small breed rescue but will take in larger dogs if fosters are available.  We then place them with carefully screened, loving families. There are many animals in the world without homes and millions are killed every year! This is unacceptable. ACM takes in as many dogs as possible who are either on "death row", from puppy mills or relinquished by their owners. They will be housed in a home where they will get individualized attention and care until they are adopted.  ACM plans to open a sanctuary where ALL types of animals can live out their lives in safety.  With limited funds and space, we've started with dogs, but soon ACM will be saving dogs, cats, birds, farm animals, etc. 

The welfare of these animals is of the utmost importance, therefore, an application and references will be required for adoption.  They will be spayed or neutered, given all shots, micro-chipped, dewormed  and tested for heartworm disease before leaving the rescue. In addition, we provide any needed medical attention the animal might require regardless of the costs. No animal will ever be euthanized in this rescue over money or inconvenience!

ACM exists to save the lives of animals in need and depends upon donations, adoptions, and volunteers to exist. We hope you take the time to look at our animals and make a donation of some kind to help those in need

We are now a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. 
Your donations are tax-deductible. 

Watch for big changes within the rescue.


Dolly was rescued from a puppy mill where she spent 7 long years breeding.  She was released when she developed medical problems on which they didn't want to spend the money.  This little one is very sweet, a precious little girl.  She's already had a hernia repaired.  Now she needs this mass removed, tested and to get her dental cleaning done along with some tooth extractions.  Please donate to Dolly's fundraiser and let's get this girl on the road to recovery and to a life of love and comfort.  Donations are tax deductible.

 Tandy has already been treated for advanced heart worm disease and in 2015 had a mass on her neck removed.  She is doing very well and is in need of a good home.
 The mass.  It was tested prior to surgery and found to be benign.
 After surgery; she's doing well.

In the near future, ACM will be announcing a much needed "sponsorship" program.  We will seek one or two sponsor(s) per animal that will cover the expenses of food, flea preventative, heart worm preventative and some vet costs.  The  sponsor will be named (or named 'anonymous' if preferred), sent a professional picture of your sponsored animal, a special gift from ACM and continued updates until the animal is adopted.  In addition, they will know that animal is covered while in our rescue care.  This will tremendously help the rescue with the extraordinary expenses of caring for these dogs thus allowing us to save more. 
If you are interested in sponsoring a dog, please email rescue@allcreaturesmatter.org

Fosters are VIPs!  They are precious to me and I consider them HEROES!
Fostering animals can be a very rewarding experience. You get the love and companionship of an animal until they are placed with a carefully screened, caring permanent home. You also get the first option of adoption if you find you just cannot part with them. This is so rewarding because you provide a home, care, and comfort to an animal who would otherwise be killed in a shelter somewhere. And that feels wonderful! There is nothing like a rescue dog. It's as if they know they've been saved and they are so grateful and loving. It's quite a wonderful experience. 

Benefits of Fostering

  • You save a dog's life
  • You have a companionship even though you cannot make a permanent commitment
  • It doesn’t cost you much.  Just some time and food.  The rescue pays for all vet fees.
  • You get a rewarding sense of  fulfillment for saving that life
  • The dog may become better behaved, giving him a greater chance at a lifetime home
  • You will gain experience in caring for and training a pet
  • You become a part of the ALL Creatures Matter family

Of course, there are some cons

  • The dog you take in may not be a ‘perfect’ dog.  It likely came from a shelter or a puppy mill and may need more attention than most. 
  • Patience is required for training and for teaching some of the dogs to trust people
  • It requires someone to be home most of the time and to be dedicated to helping the dog learn
  • You may fall in love and be sad when it leaves

The benefits of fostering a dog in need far outweigh the downside.  You will be part of taking a dog from death row to a fur-ever home.  Imagine the feeling of saving a life and then helping that dog to become the best it can be and watching it go to a loving home.  It is unbelievably rewarding!  If you are willing to take this on, contact me and together we will make it happen. There is a dog RIGHT NOW that needs your help.

We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they
would depict the devil in human form. ”
