Our Featured Pet...

This absolutely stunning pair of pups were first sighted near mile marker 212 off of Hwy 60 around Sunday. After many days of extreme dedication and effort from a group of awesome individuals, these 2 finally made the journey to the shelter. Sabre, the Catahoula blend, is an intact male around 2-3 years old. Sable, the Doberman, is an intact female also around 2-3 years old. Neither of them were wearing collars and they are not microchipped. They are a little timid, and a bit thin, from being on their own in the extreme elements but are beginning to settle in. This strongly bonded pair wouldn't give up on each other and we hope their owners haven't given up on them. If they are your dogs, you know who they belong to,or you would like to give them a forever home together, please call the shelter at 384-5117.

Who We Are

We are a government entity that serves all of the unincorporated areas of Torrance County and have been operational since 2004. We are a small shelter in a rural community, so we have a very small adoption base. Due to that we try to transfer out as many of our adoptable animals as we can to local Animal Humane Associations.

Adopting a friend

Our $80.00 adoption fee covers the sterilization, rabies vaccination, county license, and wellness exam of your new family member. Also included, for cats, the FVRCP vaccination and, for dogs, the DA2PP vaccination and the bordetella intranasal vaccination. If an animal comes to us already sterilized, their adoption fee is only $45.00. Their rabies vaccination, 1st annual vaccination, and county license (if you live in Torrance County) are included in that fee.

Come Visit Us!

We are open to the public as follows: Monday through Thursday from 8:00am to 5:00pm, Friday and Saturday from 8:00am to 1:00pm.
