A New Name For Our Forever Home

No, we haven't moved, but now we own the building we've housed our shelter in for decades. Because of our name, many people still think we're a county agency with government funding. But we're an independent nonprofit that relies almost exclusively on donations to keep serving the animals and people in our community.

As a vital member of that community, our goal is to build lasting relationships between healthy animals and healthy people.
