 Perfectly "perfect" animals of all breeds, shapes, ages and sizes are available at shelters. Just because an animal ends up there doesn't mean there is anything wrong with them. They are just in need of a second chance

Animal Adoptions

We will not adopt out an animal as an outdoor pet. On occasion, we will have some cats that will qualify for the barn cat program. We will advertise when we have barn cats available
