Check out all the loving and friendly pets available for adoption


We depend on donations to to keep the shelter running


We are always in need of adult volunteers and have some opportunities for students age 16 and up.

Visiting the Shelter

All visits to the Shelter are by appointment

We continue to host adoption meetings by appointment only and ask all potential adopters to wear masks for all indoor meetings. We have a donation shed outside our front door and gratefully accept donations of unopened dog and cat food and other supplies.

We are not accepting donations of blankets because we have more than we can store. We don’t use large comforters or pillows so do not accept them as donations.

If you would like to help us by donating food and supplies, we have updated our Amazon Wish List and our Chewy List with our most needed items at the top (cat litter, canned cat food, and dry cat food). 

Please fill out our adoption application if you see a pet on our site you would like to meet and we will contact you to set up an appointment if the pet is still available.

How to Find Us

For directions to the Shelter, please use the directions here. We are one driveway past that address and there is a large sign on the street. Appointments are required for adoption meetings and to relinquish a pet.

Need to Surrender a Pet?

We are taking in new pets including owner surrenders. We take in pets whenever space is available and accept dogs, cats, guinea pigs, bunnies, and birds. If you need to relinquish a pet, please fill out our surrender form or send an email to and tell us about the pet including when and why you need to relinquish him/her.
