Special Needs Fund
Some animals need more help than others. The Special Needs Fund helps to provide speciality veterinary care, testing beyond the ordinary, medication, surgerical or emergency services. The Special Needs Fund pays for life-saving services to animals in need.
Shelter Improvements - PAWS Project
Our shelter facilities are in desperate need of repair and improvement to better the health, safety and wellness of our animals. The PAWS Project is focused on providing a better environment for animals in our shelter and the public as well.
Donating to our Spay/Neuter Assistance program helps those in need of financial assistance to get their pets spayed or neutered at our Clinic. While are Clinic prices are very reasonable, some pet owners still need our more help. Helping them helps us reduce the pet overpopulation problem in our community.
Sponsor a Shelter Animal
Donors aan choose to sponsor an animal in our shelter by helping to pay a portion of their adoption fee. Donors can choose to fund all or part of the fee to encourage a pet's adoption and/or draw attention to them in the shelter.
