We have many dogs of various colors. But for some reason, our dark or black dogs get overlooked when looking for a new pet. Next time you come out, stop and look closer at our darker colored dogs. Your newest best friend may be waiting there for you.
We have now finished the building known as Martha's House. Now our cats have a new home. Those of you wishing to help us in future repairs or additions to our facilities, please send your contributions to the address below.
Recently we have begun expanding our facilities. We have a puppy house, where our newest puppies are housed until they are adopted or grow to a size where they will be moved to the main building.
In the near future, we will have a new run where our adoptors can meet and visit with our dogs, also our dogs can exercise. In another area, we will house our dogs known as "bully breeds" and those being held for observation. So a lot is happening at our shelter. Come out and see how we are growing.
We have now become a member of Sponsor a Pet. On each of our animal sites you can become a sponsor of that animal. This is another way of helping us see to the needs of the animals that depend on us.
