Our facility is here to take in lost animals and help them find their way home but that is not the only thing we do. We help the unclaimed animals find a new home and we also take surrenders for people who come into the unfortunate situation of needing to re-home their animals. 

As a shelter we like to have as many ways as possible for animals to have the best chance at finding the right home for them. A couple of these programs are the Senior Dog Project and the Bite Club. These programs come with great opportunities for animals but with those opportunities does come a monetary cost, here is where our gracious public comes in. Your donations are a huge help and go a long way to making our shelter a true home in between homes.

An example of how your donations help:


Maple came to us as a surrender at four years old. She had obviously been used for breeding and was a strong momma told by the scars on her face. Now at the Dog & Cat Shelter in the care of a safe haven and a little TLC Maple is doing much better.
