We are an open-admissions shelter, providing sheltering service for both city and county animal control agencies. We also take in strays, unwanted animals, and surrendered pets from the public. No animal is ever turned away. As a nonprofit organization, we are community-funded through public and private donations.
Our mission is to serve the community through innovative approaches to sheltering, adopting, and spaying/neutering of animals and public education about animal welfare. Our vision is a healthy community through compassionate care of animals.
Our goal is to reduce the number of unwanted animals in our community through public education and an aggressive spay/neuter program, including low-cost and free options for qualifying pet owners.
