About Our Shelter:We are a no kill animal shelter. We run off of donations. Our founder is Mary Sydnes she begain Save-A-Pet 27 years ago. She begain by saving cans and selling used goods. She ran a thrift store for meny meny years. In the past 27 years we have come along way from the time when Mary would rescue animals spay/nuterthem fix what ever issues they had. Then she would pay to board them. Then after raising enough money she bought property to open the shelter. It ran as a rescue shelter form 84/09. We help as meny animals as possibule. Under our new director his 10 year goal back 2006 was to open a vet clinic on sight. And in dec 2009 that will come true 7 years soner then forseen. It will be a state of the art full service vet clinic. Low cost full vet services open to the public. We will hold low cost shot clincs as well as spay/nuter clinics.
