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 adoption meetings and visits are by appointment only. We have a donation shed outside our front door and gratefully accept donations of dog and cat food and other supplies.

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.
