Animal Services

"Matching People and Pets for a Lifetime"

Our mission is to provide all the animals that come through our doors with the best quality of life possible through affection, social interaction and proper nutrition. We strive to educate the community on sterilization options, vaccination requirements and assistance with basic care issues. We offer lost and found programs, reference materials, and many other aspects of animal care and welfare. We are dedicated to the care of abandon, homeless, unwanted and lost animals. Our goal is to find quality homes for all healthy and adoptable animals and to only euthanize those too sick, injured or aggressive to be adopted.


  • Our basic adoption rate is $100.00 for a non sterilized animal. Dog or cat. This fee includes sterilization, rabies injection, exam and microchip.
  • If the animal was sterilized when it came into the shelter, the fee is $50.00.
  • Microchipping is available to the public for $20.00 includes lifetime registration.
