Our Pet List

Our Featured Pet...

All of our animals are special. Most are rescued and have sad stories. Some have been hit by cars, caught in leghold traps, been shot or beaten. All are rehabilitated and looking for someone to love. Please check out our adoption list to see our available animals.


We continue to hold our low cost spay/neuter clincs for cats by appointment on most Fridays, occasionally Thursdays, always in the afternoon. An appointment to neuter a male cat is $29, spaying a female cat is $49. Both require a $2 deposit for flea treatment and/or ear cleaning. To neuter a small male dog under 10 pounds is $69, a small female dog is $89. You will need to pay for your appt. in advance. Your cat needs to be over 3 months' old and 2 lbs. We don't do declawed ones. Rarely, complications during surgery may increase the cost. Optional vaccines are available at the time of surgery or at the vaccine clinic. We do not accept credit/debit cards. For more information, please contact a volunteer for S.T.O.P., 419 774-1738. Vaccinations for your cats and dogs are now available at low cost on some Friday afternoons from 5 to 6:00 pm. Please call first to confirm at 419 774 1738. A parvo shot for a dog is $18. Bordetella is $15. Rabies vaccination is $9. For cats, the distemper vaccine is $10. Leukemia shot would be $15 more. Microchips $22. Regular wormer is free and available anytime we're open. Have your animal on a leash of in a clean carrier. Pay the fee in cash.
