Now that we are in a bigger space, we hope to be able to rescue more big dogs but in order to do that, we need larger cages.

Our goal is to raise about $2500 to buy the cages we need so that we can bring in more large dogs for adoption.  We appreciate your tax deductible donation in any amount.  Even if you can give just $10, it helps bring us closer to our goal. 

Please click Donate, and select General Donations from the drop down box.  In the box titled special notes, specify “CAGES” so we earmark your donation for this special project.

No one ever plans that their dog can get lost. But unfortunately, it can happen in the blink of an eye.

Protect your dog by getting him microchipped. We offer microchips to all dogs, not just those adopted from us. Your dog can get a microchip and a lifetime registration for just $35. It takes just a few minutes and can be done during our shelter hours Tuesday through Sunday.
