About Us

We are very fortunate to live in a compassionate community filled with animal lovers that support our shelters mission to save lives. 

It is because of generous donations and support we were able to build this building as a way to give back to our community and offer education programs so that citizens stay up to date on all the latest information concerning animal welfare. We believe that teaching compassion and animal welfare education will ensure responsible pet owners and happy pets for many generations to come. 

This building gives us an advantage in the battle against pet overpopulation. We plan to use it to continue on our mission and save many more lives.
