Founded In 2008
The Columbus House, affectionately named after a dog rescued on Columbus Day in the late 1990s, has been a safe haven for over 1000 dogs. A house where dogs can feel the touch of a kind hand for the first time, no longer have to scavenge for a meal, be treated for medical conditions, romp around in the built-in doggie pool in the large yard, or simply decompress on a cozy bed. And when the time is right, they continue their journey in their forever home.

Thanks to the Leslie L Alexander Foundation for their kind and generous donation, we were able to update our doggy pool here at the Columbus House!
Life at the Columbus House
The Columbus House, affectionately named after a dog rescued on Columbus Day, 1998! The Columbus House has been a safe haven for over 1200 dogs. A house where dogs are surrounded by kindness and their need to decompress, to trust, to heal, and to become whole has no time limit. The Columbus House consists of four large play yards, a doggie water park, and two wonderful live-in foster parents, who love and care for each and every one of our doggie tenants that pass through. Once castaways, the majority arriving with their spirits broken; only to leave and continue their journey in their forever home.
