Is It the Right Time to Adopt?
The fact that you're thinking of adopting a pet means you're on the right track. It's definitely the responsible, caring thing to do. Before you decide, here are some things to think over first:
Jake was a 10-yr.-old Lab mix with an advanced case of heartworm. He was abandoned at a local boarding facility. Jake was the inspiration to create a fund to help all our pets who have extra-ordinary medical needs.
Please join our
"Circle of Friends"
Join a group of dedicated friends and supporters who sponsor a pet by donating a regular amount each month for the care of a chosen pet.
You will receive a personalized card with a picture and history of you chosen pet.
Please.... Lend a helping hand today - Your heart will be happy you did!
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.

Adopting a bonded pair of dogs can be a rewarding experience for the dogs and their human friends.
A pair of bonded pets is often less work than single pets — they keep each other entertained and help prevent some of the separation anxiety issues that we often see when pets are left alone." Besides, if you're looking for a pair of dogs, it's easier to adopt two that you're sure will get along.

Lady and Missy are 11 year old sisters who have been together all their lives. These two beautiful girls have had a tough time of it lately. Their owners moved out of state and left them in the garage and asked a neighbor to take care of them until they returned.
They never returned. In spite of their loss, they still had each other. They are still playful and active and need to be adopted together. Do you have room in your heart for these two sweet girls?
