We collect your information for two reasons:

  1. To assist us in interpersonal communications for the sole purpose of rescuing, locating, rehoming, or otherwise assisting an animal in need in our community.  We will use your personal information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your personal information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g., to assist in rehoming an animal.  We also collect personally identifiable information (including name, email address, phone numbers); comments, feedback, recommendations, and communications. Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you in the future to tell you about fundraisers, animals in dire need, or changes to this privacy policy.  For these purposes we may contact you via email, telephone, text messages, and postal mail.

  2. To create aggregated, non-personal, statistical data to help identify and understand how this website is being used.  We collect the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; computer and connection information. We may use software tools to measure and collect session information, including page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from the page. Third party applications and integrations, such as Google Analytics, may use additional cookies, but their use is governed by their Terms Of Use and Privacy Policies.
