Willow is a one-two year old bully mix. She was sorely neglected to the point of abuse before we took her in. She is on the mend, 44 lbs., a people lover that always has a kiss for whoever she is with. Willow is spayed, and current on all vet care. More Info
Chesed Foundation was unofficially started 23 years ago. In 2004 Chesed was incorporated as a non-profit and obtained the designation as a 501(c)(3) charity in January 2005. Throughout this time the mission of saving helpless and unwanted pets has not changed.
Chesed is defined as a sustaining action which comes out of kindness and compassion. Acts qualify as Chesed when they are motivated by a spirit of honest and selfless generosity, not one of obligation or expectation of "something" in return.
It is part of the Chesed philosophy to act on behalf of those that can't help themselves.
Through the help of our supporters and volunteers we have been able to increase our services. Wildlife and other domestic "critters" are included in our circle of care. Orthopaedic cases requiring extensive surgery and rehab have a second chance when we take over, usually after a pet is brought or surrendered to animal services after being hit by a car.
