and the Value of Responsible Pet Ownership

We strive to make sure that any animal that is adopted from our shelter is healthy and ready to be an enjoyable pet for a responsible, loving family.  Spaying or neutering before adoption helps to ensure that we are not contributing to the overpopulation which often leads to euthanasia of innocent animals.        

These videos below will help give you an idea of the testing that we do for our cats and dogs and the importance of proper care and vetting for all cats and dogs.


 FIV and Feline Leukemia are both manageable diseases, but they are also easily transferable to other pets.  All of our felines are negative of both of these conditions and have had the proper vetting against these diseases.  If you know that one of your pets has either FIV or Feline Leukemia, please let the staff know during your adoption interview.

Heartworm disease is preventable with the proper treatment.  Mosquitoes transfer this potentially deadly disease from pet to pet. We test all animals to be sure they are heartworm negative before they are adopted.

Listen to Cesar Millan in his video about choosing the right pet for you and your family by properly evaluating and assessing the breed and temperament before you bring the pet home.

Beginning to train your dog at an early age will lead to better behavior and less stress for everyone!!
