FEATURED PET: Winston


Meet Winston. It appears Winston has lived a tough five years. He arrived at the shelter in rough shape with some old injuries and infections as well as being emaciated. After some time to heal, he is now ready (really ready) to find his forever home. He is very friendly, but understandably protective of his food. He hasn’t been tested with dogs, but he growls at cats. We think this guy would be better as the only animal in the home, but should be okay to share his home with older children (8+). Meet Winston and fall in love. This kind boy is ready to love you!

Our Mission

Our mission is to shelter, care for, and advocate for the abused, neglected and abandoned cats and dogs of the communities we serve by taking steps to control overpopulation and providing healthy animals that will be adopted into loving 'forever' homes.


We will accomplish this by responsible stewardship of resources and maintaining a focus on the financial health and well-being of the organization.
