Please don't litter--Fix your critter!!

Did you know that in 6 years, 1 female dog and her offspring can produce 76,000 puppies.  And in 7 years, 1 female cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 kittens?

We would love to be put out of business!!

Adopting A Friend

Thank you for considering adopting a pet in need!  When you adopt a shelter animals, you save 2 lives; the animal you adopt and the one you made room for by adopting.  Our main priority is to match the right pet to the right home;  we want to do our best to make sure our pets find their loving, forever homes the first time around.  Our adoption process helps ensure a lifetime of love and compatibility for both the pet and the adopter.  When you find a pet you are interested in adopting, come by our shelter, call us, or send us an email!  We are always happy to talk about homes for our pets!
