The shelter relies heavily on the kind and generous donations from the public. We greatfully appreciate and accept donations of dry and canned dog food (pedigree is best), blankets, detergent for washing the dogs' blankets, dog treats, dog toys, and of course, monetary donations as well, which will ONLY be used for spay/neuters, vaccinations, and healthcare as needed for the dogs.

Who We Are
