My story

Meet this handsome fella named Marley! (Currently in foster care and a meet and greet can be arranged if interested in meeting Marley. He does come to the shelter weekdays (typically) between 3-5. ) He came into the shelter early March 2022 and was in pitiful shape. His skin was raw in about 70% of his body yet he remained so sweet despite his discomfort. He has received many medicated bath and he LOVE swimming in the salt water near his foster dads home. Great for his skin too. He is house broken, gets along great with his 2 other foster brothers and has met a few other pups and has been good with them. A dog that jumps on him probably would be best for this senior boy. He is 7 years old, current on shots, and just the sweetest fella. Enjoys going for walks and soaking up all the body rubs and affection one has to share. Maybe you have the most perfect loving FOREVER home for sweet Marley?! Visit with him and see what a loving pup he truly is and give him a wonderful life to enjoy his “golden years” being spoiled and loved!
If you have another dog and are interested in meeting another potential new furry member please bring him or her to the shelter and meet on neutral ground before adopting. No need to shuffle the animals around any more than necessary. Please know that 1 mosquito bite can create heart worms and they can be fatal if not treated. It is VERY important to keep your pets healthy and protected by keeping them on a once a month heart worm and flea/tick prevention. These animals are counting on you as their owner to provide them with lots a love and the proper health care so PLEASE make sure you are aware and prepared before adopting. Owning a pet is an extra expense and responsibility but is so worth every minute and penny you invest in them. They will add lots of joy and unconditional love if given a fair chance.
The shelter is open Mon.-Fri. 10-1, 2-5, Sat. 10-4. Adopt a homeless pet and save a life. If you can not adopt right now come out and volunteer and make a difference in the lives of these animals while they await their FOREVER home.
In order to adopt any of our "bully breeds" there is special paper work that will need to be collected and approved prior to the adoption. We love all of our dogs and want to make sure to place our "bully babies" in homes best suited for them.

More about this shelter

We are a non-profit orginization relying on donations. We do have a contract witht the county to provide shelter for strays brought in. We have limited space but try to get our animals back to thier families and if that can not be accomplished we work hard on finding them new homes.
We do what we do because we love animals. We are realistic in in efforts, understand the problem and work towards educating the public on what needs to be done to prevent over population.
