Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Reduce the overpopulation of animals in the community, find loving homes for the pets in our care, and help and educate the community in animal welfare.

We take in as many unwanted pets as we can adequately care for and find homes for them. We have opened our low cost spay/neuter clinic to help with the overpopulation problem. We have a food program for low income individuals to help them keep their pets. We offer a summer camp, junior program, and attend various other events to educate the public.

We work with local kill shelters to take in animals as we can and take in animals surrendered by the public.

We have qualified volunteers to run the shelter and care for our animals. The board is a cohesive team that runs the shelter to the best of their ability. We have qualified employees with the same passion at our spay/neuter clinic.

We have performed over 75,000 spay/neuter surgeries in 7years that has led to the 2nd expansion of our clinic. We adopt out many animals over the years and have became an anchor institution in the community. We are the only no-kill shelter in the area and are run 100% by volunteers. We are the only low cost spay/neuter clinic in several hours.
