During June, we were able to save 1,184 lives, thanks to our wonderful adopters, fosters, volunteers and donors! Over a thousand animals are sleeping soundly in their forever homes and we couldn't be more thankful. But with 60 animals coming through our shelter doors every single day (that's 420 in a week!), there's still so much more work to be done. Help us save more lives than ever during the highest intake months of the year!

Foster a shelter long-timer!

Hector good boy

We have lots of adult dogs and cats who are simply overlooked in the shelter environment. And although the shelter is a stressful place for any animal, these pets have been able to weather the storm for months. Shelter long-timers are often our most resilient pets, but are also our most in need. They need a foster home who will give them a chance to decompress and learn how to live life outside of the shelter environment. Sign up to foster today!

Donate to a pet in need!

Just a $10 donation vaccinates a homeless pet on intake, to ensure they are healthy while in our care and once they've found their forever home! $10 may not seem like a lot, but it means the world to the animal you are providing veterinary care for. Make a donation today!
