Our mission is to provide shelter, safety, and food for the orphaned and abused animals of Mercer County with the goal of placing them into loving homes. We also would like to provide public education about spaying and neutering and the humane care and treatment of animals. We investigate and resolve abuse cases in the best interest of the animals and community. We are rescue friendly. Please contact the shelter on how to be approved to rescue.
