The shelter gets give up dogs and strays dogs weekly. The shelter is no longer accepting cats. our shelter has a town budget but we do accept donations to help care for the dogs. the donations pay for medical bills for the dogs and needed supplies. Donations recently helped us repaint the building fix broken window frames, fix the excercise yard and building a new excercise yard soon. Donations helps us feed and care for animals. Animals that are injured are able to seek vet attention thanks to donations. The shelter is able to be maintained as needed. Our goal is to give good animals great homes and keep the shelter in running order. Any and all donations welcomed (food, blankets, towels, cleaning supplies, and money). Thank you.
