WE NEED FOSTER HOMES FOR OUR DOGS AND CATS!
CHESED FOUNDATION, INC. IS A NON-PROFIT 501(c)(3) ORGANIZATION
DEDICATED TO THE RESCUE AND PLACEMENT OF UNWANTED ANIMALS.
Chesed Foundation was unofficially started 22 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.
About 7 years ago a young man named Todd McColgin adopted a pit mix puppy named Callie. While he met all our "paper" criteria, we always have concerns with a young person starting out, and especially with a pit mix. Melinda did the home visit and let Callie go with fingers crossed. Todd has consistently stayed in touch every year with updates.
Callie is the love of his life. Todd even found a doggie day care a few years ago that let Callie and her "pittiness" in so she can have "camp" days. Todd is a rare adopter who goes above and beyond to ensure his girl has a terrific life. Todd even has Callie tattooed on his arm!
Congratulations Callie...you made it to the top!
