If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went. -Will Rogers
We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all.
It's the best deal man has ever made. -M. Acklam
Hours of Operation
1:30 to 5:30 Monday - Friday
We have chosen Kuranda dog beds for our boarding facilities because they are so good for our dogs. We still don't have enough for all of our kennels. If you would like to donate a bed so another dog can sleep in proper comfort, please click here.
To donate various items items to our shelter click below. A gift certificate will be sent to us so we can purchase items desperately needed at the shelter.
Volunteers are desperately needed to help clean and to walk and socialize the dogs. They really do love to get out and walk and it helps them stay healthy, too. They are happy to let you know how much they appreciate the attention! And it is good exercise for us. So, give Debbie a call at the shelter Monday - Friday 1:30p-5:30p and she will be happy to sign you up.
