Looking to adopt? NOW is the best time! We have a great selection of homeless dogs that need homes! Don't see a dog you are looking for? Call us! You can be added to our call list when a dog matching what you are looking for becomes available for adoption!


The pets in our care are in need of donations of cat litter, garbage bags,canned dog food and laundry detergent. We also need dog collars and leashes. Remember donations are tax deductible. We are also in need of gas cards to help with our gas expenses for running animals for surgeries, vet visits, rescue transports and donation runs. The animals appreciate all donations! --

Who We Are

We are a private non-profit organization serving the Columbia County Area. We take in stray dogs and cats from contracted townships in our county. We also take owner surrenders when space allows us to. If you need to surrender your pet, please call the shelter before bringing it to us. We may have a waiting list! The shelter offers an educational program, tours and obedience classes given by Mighty Mutt K9 College--
