We help dogs and cats that have no one else. It takes a lot to run and maintain an animal shelter. Please consider helping out in any way; volunteering your time, monetarily or donating goods we need to keep our four-legged friends happy and healthy!

Our staff works 365 days a year. That includes Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. It takes dedication to care for more than 120 animals every single day of the year.

We were lucky to start our shelter back in 1975 and we've been able to successfully keep our doors open for 40 years now. It's taken a lot of love, hard work and dedication, but the animals make every day a joy for us!
