We provide animal welfare services to serve the best interests of our community's animals.

Our main objectives are: caring for lost animals brought to our facility until reunited with their owners; allocating financial aid for vet bills & spay/neuter to qualified pet owners; facilitating pet placement into loving forever homes; foster care outreach; assisting with pet microchipping & registration;  preventing animal cruelty & neglect and educating the public about critical issues concerning our furry friends.
