Why you should adopt or rescue your next pet. The pets at the shelters are in great need of a new home. Some have been strays, surrenders or abandoned. That does not mean they will not make good pets. Adopters often tell us that their new adopted pet is the most loyal and loving pet they have ever had. It is like they sense you are giving them the gift of a second chance. Their unconditional love is their furry THANK YOU! Many people come in looking for pure or small breed dogs, this is not impossible to find in a shelter but most dogs are not. That does not mean that they will not fit in perfectly at your home. Many people look and are drawn to a certain pet. It may not be what they had in mind when they came in, but this pet "picked them", touching their soul. It is said cats pick their owners; they beckon them over and charm them. Making them smile, enjoying the purrs and happy feet. With dogs it is more of a intense look, tilt of the head and knowledge in their eyes that you are the one. What happens if it does not work out? Bring the pet back. We want you and the pet happy and well adjusted. We will help you find the one that is right for you. There are so many homeless pets in shelters and rescues. Be part of the solution: adopt/rescue and spay/neuter!.

IF YOU CANNOT ADOPT BUT WOULD LIKE TO HELP~~ We are in need of wet cat food, both shreds and pate. All donations are greatly appreciated!
