Monetary Donations:
If you wish to make a monetary donation to the shelter, please complete the Adoption/Medical Fund Donation Form (link is provided below). The Adoption/Medical fund helps to offset the cost of providing spay/neuter procedures, vaccinations, micro-chipping and fecal exams for the adoptable animals at the shelter. Receiving these donations helps us to keep the adoption fees low.

Do you have medications that are no longer needed for your dog or cat?
