We place dogs and cats in loving, responsible, committed permanent homes, following a comprehensive adoption process which includes taking considerable care in finding good matches and educating prospective adopters about the responsibilities and costs of bringing a dog or cat into their homes and lives. Taking in major medical cases and senior animals means that they will likely have more care needed life long. We make sure that they are placed in homes that are able to financially and physically care for them long term.
Animals in our care are all spayed or neutered, receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment, and placed in nurturing foster homes while they await placement in their permanent homes. We assist dogs and cats in distress without regard to age, breed or ease of placement. To the extent our finances allow, dogs and cats in the greatest need take priority.
We have partnered with some of the best and the brightest in the Veterinary Medical field and we are committed to giving every animal in our care the best chance at a happy forever. We do not shy away from unconventional routes and are always looking for ways to push forward the medical advances for animals. From fish skin grafts on trauma cases, to prosthetics for amputees, to FIP treatments that save lives as never before, we will make sure every option is exhausted for our major medical cases. Many animals that would have immediately been euthanized in the shelter, now have a chance to live and thrive with their varied medical conditions.
We never euthanize animals due to space or time constraints, but we may elect to euthanize in the event of a severe, untreatable/debilitating illness or extremely dangerous behavioral concerns. Because we do not kill to make space, however, we cannot take in every animal that needs help.
