Foster a Pet
Looking for a way to      make a difference? 
Fostering a pet may not change the world, but it will certainly change the world for that one pet.
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. 
Jake's Fund
Please join our "Circle of Friends;"   
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.

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.
Group Visitor Policy
City Market has changed the program to "Community Rewards" and is requiring all former donors to the "City Market Cares" program to re-enroll in "Community Rewards."
If you were formerly signed up for the "City Market Cares" program, your donations are no longer valid.

Teddy - 8  yrs. old
Rue and Matt
Spur- 8  yrs. old
Spur  is very easy going and affectionate! This handsome boy enjoys being inside as well as outside. He loves to go on walks/hikes, car rides, camping, and fishing. He would even be fine just cuddling up to get some loving. 
 Matt (age 6) and Rue (age 10) have been waiting for that special someone or family for over 3 months now. They are both Australian Cattle Dog mixes. These handsome boys were raised together and are great friends. They would  love to stay together. Although older, both are still active and playful. They will be a wonderful addition to your family.
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.

Featured Too Long Tails
Ricky is a 2 year old male Cattle Dog mix and has been patiently 
waiting for his own "Forever Home" for almost 4 months.
Ricky is a very good boy who enjoys the company of all kinds of people. However ,he is another dog that doesn't show well when he is in his kennel. He jumps and barks at visitors, who mistake his actions for aggressiveness. He is really just trying desperately to get someone to notice him and take him out of the kennel. Once he gets out, he's an affectionate and playful boy. He loves nothing more than to be outside playing with his people and a ball. He loves to cuddle and have his ears rubbed.  
Please come visit Ricky, but be sure to ask a staff member to take him outside to the yard, so you can get to know the "real" Ricky!
