We seek the help of rescue groups and other shelters when we are full.  Our “full” times of the year run from April through December.

The pets will all be spayed or neutered, given age appropriate shots, tested (HW, FeLeuk), de-wormed, and microchipped before they leave. Dogs will also be licensed. We will provide the paperwork for you to give to your adopter.

We ask that you help us by taking pets that have been here the longest.

Cats under four months
Cats over four months
Dogs over four months
Dogs under four months

Some pets will be free due to the length of time spent in the shelter or chronic medical issues. We ask that you are a 501c-3 and you fill out the application.
