Meet Vanessa!

Vanessa is a real cutie who is very playful and loves belly rubs. She is a young terrier mix who enjoys wrestling with her roommate and playing fetch. She is a small-size prize!

She needs a home without children under the age of 5 or cats and special fencing because of my talent for climbing chain link.

We met Vanessa through Living Free Animal Sanctuary in Mountain Center, California. In 1980 Emily Jo Beard acquired 153 acres in the San Jacinto Mountains near Idyllwild and named it Living Free Animal Sanctuary — which is the only sanctuary founded by Emily. She devoted the rest of her life to providing refuge for orphaned cats and dogs. "We have an obligation to better the lives of the animals with whom we share the earth," said Emily. Today at Living Free they: save the lives of Cats and Dogs who otherwise would be euthanized; spread the message that our companion cats and dogs are entitled to secure lives enhanced by loving care; and teach youngsters and adults to understand, respect and value animals.
