Sturdy toys that can not be chewed into little pieces, for interaction. We could use a few large cages for transporting large dogs.****
Who We Are:
A non-profit 501(c) organization.
Our shelter is under construction,
but there are many animals under S.H.A.R.K.'s volunteer foster care. These loving animals are in desperate need of permanent homes.
How to contact us:

Please visit our website. We update it constantly and we try to keep our photos updated. Though we have limited knowledge of our doggies back grounds, we can tell you the sad stories of how they came to be with us and that our wonderful foster families take good care of them, while they wait for you to adopt them permanently. We have only non aggressive and healthy doggies available for adoption. We don't take in cats but have helped place a few in good, permanent homes.
Please call us or email us, someone will get in touch with you As Soon As We Can (usually within 24 hours) !!

Out -Of- State Applications Are Welcome ! We have been arranging meets half way to place our doggies, so far we have driven to FL, North AL, GA, MS and LA !! Now we are checking into pet Transport Companies. We are not transporting cats however.
Adoption fees help to offset the cost of vet care (spay/neutering, vaccinations, deworming, etc.) which is included with the adoption. Our fees are based on what we have put into each animal and nothing more.
