About Our Shelter:

We began about 3 years ago rescuing dogs and cats because of the great need in this small very poor community. There are only 3 of us active at this time and it can become very overwhelming. We do it for the love of the animals and I believe they understand and no we want to help. We have very little money so much of it has come out of our pockets, for spay and neutering and veterinary care. Our goal is to someday build a nokill facility where every animal will be welcome with open arms. We can always use volunteers and fosters which are very hard to find here. There is a small shelter in the city with only 6 runs and when it becomes full they are taken to be euthanized. We try and pull those animals and give them a second chance. Right now our greatest need is fosters.

Come Meet our Pets:

If someone is interested in an animal we try to set a time and location for us to meet. We do not have a kennel or any set location to show all of our animals. If the animal is in the shelter we have to make arrangements with animal control to pull the animal. The shelter is behind two locked gates so we don't have access.

Our Adoption Process:

We require a nominal fee if the dog or cat is spayed or neutered. Also we ask for a donation. We like to be able to talk to the adopter and have them meet the animal they are interested in to make sure its a good match. We do not allow chaining outside of any dog. We like our dogs to be indoor, outdoor pets.

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
