Who We Are

We are an animal control facility who also helps animals that are being neglected or abused. We have an adoption program for cats and dogs. We depend upon donations for the shelter operations. Because there are only TWO full time and ONE part-time people working here it may take us awhile to get back to you. Please hang in there. If there is someone who would like to volunteer to help clean from 8:00am to 11:00am that would be great!! We will post ALL that we know about each animal on petfinder at our home page. Adopters must bring their Veterinarian records for the animals now living in the home or records of previously owned pets with them to our shelter when they are ready to adopt.
