Grateful Rescue & Sanctuary is not a traditional animal shelter but a unique approach for animal rescue. Cats and dogs temporarily at-home in the Sanctuary are treated to highly individualized care.  This standard of excellence extends to how the Sanctuary operates generally.

GuideStar, a database evaluating the mission and effectiveness of nonprofits, has awarded Grateful Rescue & Sanctuary with its Platinum Seal of Transparency, a level achieved by fewer than 1% of its 2.5 million nonprofits reviewed. Fewer than 1% of the 2.5 million registered nonprofits receive this distinction.
