About Us



It's that time of year! Please contact us to re-new your commitment to foster kittens and puppies! We haven't seen any little ones yet, but it's just a matter of time. If you haven't fostered before and would like to, we would LOVE to have you! We need foster homes for all types and ages of kittens and puppies. Tell us what you would like to do and we will get you all set up to foster!  There is an application and home inspection process.

Bottle feeder homes and homes that are willing to work with scared kittens and puppies can be hard to come by. Please considering taking on those litters. THANK YOU

Adopting A Friend

Adult Cats $ 30

 Kittens (8 weeks - 1 year) $ 50 

Adult Dogs $ 60

Puppies (8 weeks - 1 year) $ 75

All animals adopted from the shelter will be spayed or neutered and vaccinated upon adoption. IN ORDER TO DO WHAT IS BEST FOR EACH ANIMAL, ALL ADOPTIONS ARE ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS. WE CANNOT HOLD ANY ANIMAL. If you have questions or need additional information please call the shelter.We have some felines that need to go to barn homes. They are not tame enough to be adoptable. They are fine being around people but do not interact. We like our cats to go in pairs to barn homes so they have a companion and the transition is much more successful. The barn home needs to provide food and shelter and on-going care. Initially the cats need to be kept confined for several weeks until they bond with their new environment so when they are turned loose they won't run away. If you have such a setting and can help provide a home for a couple cats that have no other alternative.
