Our Mission is to provide a safe, healthy, and loving environment that will provide temporary shelter for abandoned, stray and surrendered animals for finding each animal a new and prosperous home.
The Babinski Foundation will be the model shelter in our surrounding area, making sure that we address issues of pet overpopulation via our services and provide education on how to prevent it. We also aim to prevent as many pet deaths as we can year after year. The Babinski Foundation believes in the Five Freedoms for animal welfare.

Donald Babinski | Founder
The Babinski Foundation was always the dream of Donald Babinski owner of Babinski Properties. His dream was to have a safe haven for dogs and cats. His dream would start to become a reality when the Babinski Foundation was established in 2010.
Donald Babinski tragically passed away on August 11th 2014, before the project could be completed. His surviving family and friends would not let his dream vanish and worked together to see Donald's dream completed.
