Closed to Visitors

For our animal-loving friends who simply enjoy visiting the shelter to see or interact with our pets, we kindly ask you to refrain from casual visits at this time. In lieu of social interaction and visitation with the animals, you might consider donating online or from our Amazon Wishlist, as we are still accepting canned and bagged pet food at this time.

Also, please note that the pets in our care are getting plenty of love and attention from our dedicated staff!

We appreciate your patience and understanding during our closure and look forward to seeing you again soon!
