Divas and Dogs in Paris 2022

Our most recent event on March 18th was a huge success!

We are extremely grateful for our generous sponsors and guests in helping us to save more homeless cats and dogs.

Please take a moment to view our photos of the event and visit our sponsors' links below. 


Our Mission...

To offer a safe environment and shelter for companion animals including medical care, vaccinations, and micro-chipping by loving and caring individuals, until we can adopt them into a new suitable home. We do this with 100% private donation.
