Our mission is to investigate, help prosecute and prevent cruelty to animals; promote adoption awareness, humane education and responsible pet ownership while we care for the many animals surrendered to the shelter to the best of our ability every day until we find them new loving homes.
Adoption hours are noon to 4:00 pm, 6 days a week -- closed Tuesdays. Hours may vary due to construction. Potential adopters are required to complete an application and sign an adoption contract. All adopted animals are vaccinated for distemper, bordetella (dogs), microchipped, have had one worming, one flea treatment, and FeLV/FlV tested (cats). All adopted animals must be seen by a veterinarian within 72 hours, and must be seen annually for check up and vaccinations.
