Surrendering a Pet

Since we're a no-kill shelter, our ability to accept a pet is determined by how much hospital space we have at that time. Learn more about our intake procedures.

Intake Procedure

Foster Volunteer

Our foster program is key to the success of saving as many furry lives as we can. Moving animals into foster homes not only makes their lives better, it also saves the lives of those who take their place.
