Our organization believes that spaying and neutering is the most effective and humane way of controlling our pet overpopulation because there are not enough homes for all of the unwanted litters. We offer a low cost Spay/Neuter services to our residents to assist in controlling the animal population.
Our goal is to save the precious lives through Rescue, Adoption and Spay/Neuter.
Our Motto is to Lend a Helping Hand to Those Without a Voice.

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
