We fully assess dogs who have experienced trauma, neglect, and/or abuse and then rehabilitate them in a home setting. They are provided twice daily outdoor experiences where we hike as a pack, regardless of the weather, allowing them to burn energy and rediscover what it means to be a dog. We also focus on nutritious meals and an enriching home environment utilizing music, essential oils, and planned chewing opportunities to nurture their sense of well-being. We then match each dog and its unique needs with a perfect home, using a well-planned introduction process. This minimizes the stress of transition and ensures the process is successful; thus, dogs do not find their way back to homelessness again in their lifetime!

OUR tnr cat program

After several individuals expressed concern to us for the plight of the many colonies of feral cats and kittens throughout the Village of Moravia, the Home Stretch expanded in 2019 to include a trap, spay/neuter, vaccinate, and release program for feral cats. To date, with the dedicated leadership of Patty Reynolds, we have taken direct action with the Spaulding, Myers, Grove and Cayuga Streets, West Cayuga and Central Streets, and other colonies. The majority of adult cats were released back to where they were trapped, while others were relocated. Kittens young enough to lead non-feral lives were provided medical attention and adopted.
