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.


See puppies under the Watch Me Grow tabALL Creatures Matter Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue.  ACM takes in dogs who are in high kill shelters, 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. 

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

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.

Did you know when you adopt a rescue dog
that you are actually saving TWO lives? 

You're saving the one you adopt AND
a homeless pet that now has room in a rescue.

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. ”
- William Ralph Inge (1860-1954)
