We are a county owned animal shelter that services both cats and dogs. We take in stray and surrendered animals.
Adopting a Friend
Our current adoption prices are $100/dog and $60/cat. You must agree to have your pet neutered and you will receive a $25 refund when you provide proof that you have had the animal altered. All animals MUST be altered within 30 days of adoption or by six months of age! If the dog you adopt is already neutered, the adoption cost is reduced by $25, the cost of the neuter deposit.
Volunteering and Donations
Donations are always welcome. We also accept volunteers on a limited basis. Contact us for more information if interested.
