Featured Animals

Wayne is a 82 lb 3-5 year old mixed breed looking for a home. Wayne loves his people, but is a sensitive guy and needs a patient, understanding home. He is housebroken once he is settled and loves to play with his toys. This big guy also enjoys going for short walks. While he loves his people, he is not a social butterfly and would prefer a quiet, adult only home without a lot of new people coming and going. Wayne does like to play with some dogs and may be a good fit with an easy going social dog. If you need a lovable goof in your life, apply for Wayne today. 

Fostering Saves Lives

Making A Difference

Second Chance Program:

Meet the animals who came to us at a point when all hope was lost. With us they found a Second Chance at life.

Meet Shelby.

Shelby was brought to us after being found next to a dumpster, tossed aside like a bag of garbage. The people who found her thought that at first she was already dead, but discovered she was barely clinging to life. With emergancy vet care, and a careful, loving foster, Shelby is how a happy, beautiful girl, much loved by her family.
