FEATURED PET: Jakie


Meet Jakie. His owner passed away and his family could not keep him. Jakie is very shy, but loveable. He is declawed, up to date on vaccines, and neutered. We’re not sure how he would be with other animals as he was the only one. He should be an indoor only kitty. Jakie needs a home with a patient owner who will let him open up on his own time. Are you the one he can find his new home with? Come meet Jakie.

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.
