Our Mission

We seek to provide a safe, welcoming facility for stray, lost, and unwanted dogs and to make their lives healthy and happy as we find them a forever home.
We ask that you come to meet the dogs prior to submitting an adoption application.

We are currently open Mon-Fri 9-2 or by appointment. We are practicing social distancing so all meet and greets will be done outside. Masks are required by all visitors.

Adoption Policy

If you see a dog that you would like to meet, we ask that you come into the Shelter and meet the dog(s). After meeting the dog(s) we will have you complete an adoption application. We check all references and we then try to match the dog to the best home for the dog. First application in does not always get to adopt the dog if it is not a good match. Our goal is to match the dogs to the very best home for the dog(s).

We do require that your current pets be current on vaccines, and that your dogs be on monthly heartworm prevention.

Our adoption fee is $200.00 All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped, checked for the tick borne diseases and started on heartworm and flea & tick prevention.
