Where are the Shelter's Thrift Shops?
We Believe in Guardian Angels and Tooth Fairies.
In fact, Guardian Angels and Tooth Fairies play important roles in making certain every animal is adotpable — and that every animal gets adopted.

Rachel and Tigger
I like that the Shelter spays and neuters every animal that leaves their doors. It's the only responsible thing to do.
Michelle & Jeff with Gracie
15 dogs were taken from an abusive "puppy mill." Months later, only one remained unadopted. Yes, she's a "special needs" dog, but, to us, she's simply special
