Groups wanting to visit the shelter in order to view or play with our animals are limited in size.
Groups of children or adults with special needs are limited to 4 people, including at least one adult supervisor.
Groups must call ahead to schedule a tour at least 24 hours in advance.
The shelter environment, in the best of times, is stressful on the animals. The noise, the daily cleaning routines, and interactions with people and other animals can be stressful and can compromise an animal's health.
Too many people in a group can also turn an animal's stress into aggressive behavior. Our prime concern is to keep all our visitors safe.

Siamese cats are the most social and friendly of all cat breeds.
Most Siamese cats are very playful and active. They are strangely curious and are usually very intelligent. They get easily bored and therefore you should not leave them alone for significant periods of time because they will likely go snooping around the house in search of something to play with.
Pamper them with affection and lots of attention and they will be happy for your company. Ignore them and you will hear about it, as they are very vocal about expressing their opinions.

They are the quintessential “people” cat, for they love to be in your lap, on your bed, at your table – and in your heart!
Biko is a 1-yr.-old Black Lab mix. This handsome boy is still just a pup at heart and LOVES to play fetch the ball.
Biko hates being cooped up in a kennel (who wouldn't?) so he doesn't always show his best side to visitors coming through the kennels. But, take him outside and throw a ball, and he becomes a happy boy.
Biko would make a great hiking buddy and needs an active friend who has the time to give him some love and attention.
Biko has been at the shelter far too long and is patiently waitng for his very own forever home.
