Our Mission

Our goal is to rescue as many animals as possible! We take in stray, abused, and abandoned, dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies. We provide the animals with food, shelter, and any medical attention they may need including love and support. Our staff and volunteers take pride in rehabilitating and changing animal lives for the better to get them ready to be adopted into loving homes.

Adoption Policy

We are so pleased that you are interested in adopting a new pet! As a small shelter, we have a limited number of adoptable pets at any given time, but please read through the following information and submit your Application for Adoption because we will have many wonderful animals in search of their "forever homes" in the weeks and months to come.


Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, all adoptions will be conducted on an appointment ONLY basis until further notice. We have therefore modified our normal adoption process. Please fill out the attached Cat Adoption Application and return it to us.
Applications will be reviewed on a first come – first serve basis. Once you are approved, we we can set up a time for you to come to the shelter and meet the kittens when they become available.

This is a new process for us so please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
