About Us


We are actively seeking loving, caring and dedicated volunteers from our community to provide daily pet care and socialization to the shelter pets. If you would like to share your time and love at the shelter, please visit the shelter and complete a volunteer application.

We also need fosters!!  Many animals just need out for a week or two before leaving for rescue. Every one that is fostered makes room for one to come in.


Adopting A Friend

Our adoption fee is $85.00 which includes Rabies vaccine and spay or neuter surgery. We also give first parvo/distemper vaccine and wormer when they arrive at the shelter.
