Our Approach

Our Story

Our Story

People and animals need one another.  We feel better, have more energy, and are more caring when we interact with animals.  At the same time, so many animals need our help.  It's this understanding that led our founder, Judy Dyke, to imagine this unique vision of a dual purpose, non-profit organization.   At Harmony, we're helping people and animals at the same time.

Our very first committee meeting took place on August 22, 2017.  Since then, we have focused on providing adoption and foster placement services, in-store animal care services, fundraising, and volunteer recruitment (become a volunteer).  Our hope is to open a local adoption center summer of 2019, but we need a lot of help to get there!

We are excited to announce that we have recently been granted 501c3 status!

Judy Dyke

Founder & President

My passion for animals and to provide the best care for them has moved me to start a nonprofit rescue and sanctuary. Since I also love to help people connect with other people and find joy in their lives, complementing my first dream with a retreat for people felt natural.

During my life I have had 10 dogs including several rescues. It’s so hard to watch stories about animals in need. When I found out about Harmony I thought this would be a good opportunity to help.

This foundation has enormous potential to positively impact the community.  I am really looking forwards to helping it grow and flourish.
