Our Mission

All animals are given necessary vaccines such as Parvo/Distemper, Bordetella, Feline Distemper, they will be wormed, and given flea/tick medication. All dogs over the age of 1 year will also be heartworm tested.

All dogs are given periodic run of the north and south side yards that are available not only for exercise, but also to promote socialization with human beings in a playful and safe environment.

Animals are never housed together in kennels (unless related, such as two puppies from the same litter) for quarantine purposes and to prevent the spread of disease.

Remember, please spay and neuter your pets!
